    A recent study showed the U.S. lost 11,630 farms last year (2012).

    Also reminds me of a trip I made to a CSA a few years ago with some agriculturally challenged friends. They were surprised to see how some vegetables grew. I am talking about putting a seed in the ground! They were almost enlightened to the fact that lettuce does not grow in cellophane wrap.

    Small farmers cannot compete financially with "mega farms" which are gigantic areas owned by big corporations that grow massively huge crops which they can sell below what any small farmer can manage. Thus, they buy them out and grow even bigger until they totally dominate agriculture around the World. But now they are experimenting with genetically altered seeds to expand the size of crops, regardless of the effect on their natural surroundings. The result is the inborn creativity of natural plants is being replaced by laboratory-created clones of their genetic experiments. Thus, millions of people are now eating such genetically altered food in supermarkets everywhere; and this has provoked the movement back to "organically grown" natural foods, of which I am a devotee of many years and part of the reason I am in reasonably good health for my age. Therefore, I urge all who read this to do likewise so each may live a longer and healthier life.

    That goes to show the dumbing down of America!!! It is really bad, from low IQ over-breeders who are coming in and the ones here causing the average IQ to go down 6 points so far and the amount of knowledge learned in schools to be less than required to even get a starter job for many. No more shops, no more ecology, not enough math and science, not enough other intellectually stimulating subjects taken at the high school level. Even technically illiterate people graduating from colleges since the 1970s.
    And what nrdthxpr says is true, too.
