GROWING OUR OWN
Food Chain Radio Show #915
April 13, 2013 • Sat 9AM Pacific


Michael Olson hosts Dave DeWitt, Author, Growing Medical Marijuana http://eatmoreheat.com/2013/02/growing-medical-marijuana-dave-dewitt-live/


Listen to Herodotus talk about the Scythians in 500 BC, as they gather around the campfire, throw marijuana seeds on the fire, and then…
******
“sit around in a circle; and by inhaling the fruit that has been thrown on, they become intoxicated by the odor, just as the Greeks do by wine; and the more fruit is thrown on, the more intoxicated they become, until they rise up and dance and betake themselves to singing.”

*******
For as long as we can look back, which is around 10,000 years, we can see that people have used cannabis as a means to soothe their way through life.

Of course, people also used cannabis to make clothes for their bodies, paper for their books, sails for their ships, oil for their cooking, and rope to hold themselves together, to name but a few.  Because it was so useful, cannabis became a principal crop of mankind, with tens of thousands of acres being grown around the world.  Cannabis was so plentiful, in fact, one could harvest hundreds of pounds free from the roadside ditches of America’s heartland.


However, in the 1930’s the soothing properties of cannabis came to the attention of powers-that-be, and they threw the cloak of prohibition over cannabis.  This prohibition, ironically, ended the cultivation of cannabis for all purposes but that for which it was prohibited, and thus increased its value to thousands of dollars per pound.


Today, the soothing properties of cannabis are claimed to be medicinal, and people now demand from the powers-that-be the right to grow and consume their own medicine.  Their demand leads us to ask…

Should we be allowed to grow our own medicine?

The Saturday Food Chain with Michael Olson- March 30th 2013- Don't Feed the Bears

Food Chain Weekly News Topic
DON’T FEED THE BEARS
Food Chain Radio Show #913
March 30, 2013 • Sat 9AM Pacific

Michael Olson hosts Kevin Sanders, Yellowstone Outdoor Adventures

http://www.yellowstone-bearman.com/
••••
Should civilized people feed wild life?

“Dad!  Why does the sign say, ‘Don’t feed the bears!”
******
“Because, son, Yellowstone Park does not want us to feed bears.”

*******
“But Dad, the bears are hungry, and we have extra food.  It doesn’t seem fair!”

Living in rural Yachats, Oregon, Karen Noyes did not have to abide by the rules of Yellowstone Park, and liked feeding the wild bears, and so fed them.  And when she did, more bears came to be fed.  Soon Karen Noyes had a yard full of bears to be fed, with more coming all the time.
••••
It did not take long before things got out of Karen Noyes’ hands.  One of her bear friends stormed a neighbor’s turkey farm and killed 60 of its resident turkeys.  Another bear friend took a liking to the neighbor lady and got stuck trying to sneak in through the lady’s dog door for visit.  And so on …
••••
Consequent to all the bearishness going on in the neighborhood, poor Karen Noyes was arrested and convicted for “Harassing Wildlife.”  She was then sentenced to three years of probation, which included an order not to go near her rural home.

*******
Yellowstone Park has a long and storied history of wild bears and civilized people.  When civilized people see the wild bears’ pleading looks of “feed me, feed me,” they often want to feed the wild bears.  When they do, the wild bears often undergo a personality change, and the pleading looks become demanding looks that say, “FEED ME!  FEED ME!”

GOVERNMENT-SAFE FOOD
Food Chain Radio Show #913 • March 23, 2013 • Sat 9AM Pacific

*********Michael Olson hosts Judith McGeary,

Executive Director Farm & Ranch Freedom Alliance
••••
What kind of farm will be able to grow government safe food?



••••••
Industrial production of peanuts, cantaloupes, hamburger and spinach reigned havoc on the nation’s food chain, sickening many and killing some.
In keeping with their stated policy of “never letting a serious crisis go to waste,” politicians flew into action, and in the waning hours of 2010, passed the Food Safety Modernization Act, which granted to government total and absolute control over the nations’s food chain.

*******
Former Monsanto Executive Michael Taylor,  now government’s Food Safety Czar, recently handed down 1,200 pages of new food safety rules. These rules are scheduled to go into effect in a few weeks.

Few have read all the 1,200 pages, and most seem resigned to follow a former Speaker of the House, who would likely say, “Let’s enforce all the rules so we can know what they are!”
••••
Some, however, would like to have time to read all the new rules before accepting them.  Their asking for time to read all the rules leads us to ask…
••••

For whom is government making food safe?
