“Irrelevant” – Prez. Obama Agriculture Secretary Vilsack says Bitter Clingers are Less Relevant”….

Tom Vilsack is a member of President Obama’s Cabinet and reflects the typical attitude of those who surround “THIS” President.    But they may want to pause before disparaging the kitchen staff (rural America = bitter clingers), because that very same kitchen crew might just say “enough” and quit.   Then, how you gonna eat?

family-farm-e1332384792489WASHINGTON (AP) — Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has some harsh words for rural America: It’s “becoming less and less relevant,” he says.

A month after an election that Democrats won even as rural parts of the country voted overwhelmingly Republican, the former Democratic governor of Iowa told farm belt leaders this past week that he’s frustrated with their internecine squabbles and says they need to be more strategic in picking their political fights.

“It’s time for us to have an adult conversation with folks in rural America,” Vilsack said in a speech at a forum sponsored by the Farm Journal. “It’s time for a different thought process here, in my view.”

He said rural America’s biggest assets – the food supply, recreational areas and energy, for example – can be overlooked by people elsewhere as the U.S. population shifts more to cities, their suburbs and exurbs.

(*snip*, the food supply can be overlooked?   No, wrong wording Tom, it can be “taken for granted“….  and THAT is what’s currently taking place…… /SD)

“Why is it that we don’t have a farm bill?” Vilsack said. “It isn’t just the differences of policy. It’s the fact that rural America with a shrinking population is becoming less and less relevant to the politics of this country, and we had better recognize that and we better begin to reverse it.”  ( read more)

F*ck with the farmers, you’re gonna get hungry.

      That headline made me laugh: “Ann Barnhar(d)t speaks her mind”….that’s not exactly news! ;)

        That’s right Sharon. Here are 2 comments under her latest video. Ann gets complains about her cursing. What kind of Christian are You? Bla Bla Bla. I like it when she starts using curse words.
        Comment 1 – Grow up, she is a big girl and her profanity is used for emphasis. True
        Funny Comment 2 – Ann: Will you marry me? Just don’t yell at me after the wedding. :-)

    Oh, really. Well, the folks in rural America would like to have an adult conversation with the folks in Washington, too. Problem is, there aren’t any adults in Washington–apparently.

    Remember a couple years back when obama was throwing around the language about the pitchforks? He still doesn’t get who has the pitchforks and knows how to use them.

    Tyrants are so childish. Which makes them that much more dangerous.

    If they keep it up they will find out just how relevant rural America is.

  4. The kitchen staff wields tremendous power.
    I was poisoned at the Livadia Palace in Yalta…and it wasn’t salmonella in the peanut butter.
    :evil:

    When all those people in the cities are eating the Big Agribusiness/in-bed-with-government GMO products that pass for food (and getting sick from it), there might be a different opinion about the relevancy of the rural folks. These are the folks with small farms and healthy produce sold locally. And they are already fighting the good fight against Big Ag/Big Government. Vilsack is not the friend of rural folk, apparently. Shocking. Shocking, I tell ya.

    Hmmm…perhaps the irrelevent farmers should go on strike for a growing season and show just how irrelevent they really are.

    The Idiot-ocracy is doubling-down after the election and accelerating their agendas.

    Translation— > I’m smarter than you dumb hick children, an what I say goes, because it’s MY WAY or the highway chump!

    ANN Barnhardt! Yes she is a good spokewoman for rural america. She has a good point when she speaks and I agree with her the farmers, ranchers etc. are being over regulated by the kids in DC.

    That’s been the plan for decades, urbanize the population and make them dependent upon the State for every facet of their very existence. I can remember in sociology classes in the 60s the professors were going on about how by such-and-such a date the US would be well over a majority urban/suburban. In the late 60s when I was swept into the Fulda Gap miasma we and the Russians were bogged down by the inability of either to maneuver in a full-pitched land battle due to Europe’s urbanization, and as the battle planners expanded their library to other lands they ran into much the same problems there also. We started to focus on ways to disable a city and paralyze the population, only to discover how ridiculously easy it was – as evidenced in Baghdad in 1990.
    None other than the SecAg under Klinton said that a full 70%+ of the privately-owned farms in the US could disappear overnight with nary a blip agriculturally or politically on the national radar. And I’ll bet that most of us remember Janet Reno’s opinion on non-urban residents, as demonstrated by the trail of dead bodies of men, women and children scattered across rural America.Once the majority of folks live in cities they end up voting Democrat as the Democrats discovered the doctrine of bread, circuses and velvet shackles long ago.
