Chairman's Comments

  As is all too typical, bureaucrats “know” that they are smarter than the rest of us and are trying to force their will upon us. The newest one I am aware of is that Global Technocrat scientists have declared war on meat, as they have done already on fossil fuels, and their reasoning and the way they are trying to sell this idea is by claiming that carbon emissions will be reduced. Animals pass gas, and breath, and if there are no animals, then less gas emissions. The Paris Climate Agreement has bought into it and now investors are climbing on board with the idea. They are taxing carbon and sugar, and meat seems like it may be next. Lawmakers in Denmark, Germany, China and Sweden have discussed creating livestock-related taxes for the past two years. If this continues, down the line they will tell us there are to many people, and all but the elites and service workers should be taxed or eliminated. I remember a very long time ago that Rush Limbaugh said that there would come a time in the future when sugar would be taxed, as a way to regulate what we eat. He said, “you can laugh, but mark my words”. Unfortunately, he was right and too many of his dire predictions are coming true.  More
