Like I posted previously, I’m pretty upset and words fail me, but Rep. Brown speaks for me.
I think we need to stop spending money on these….useless eaters. (Hillary Clinton and Rush Limbaugh have both reportedly stated such) ….so I’m trying to find information confirming that Hillary or Bill made the statement, and it’s interesting all the stuff that I came across….one of which is a statement that Cecil Rhodes of the Rhodes scholarship fame, was a racist who called Africans “useless eaters”. (Interesting that Bill Clinton is a Rhodes Scholar.)
This, for instance. Well, now.
And then there’s this (2010). Isn’t it interesting that wherever Clintons go, there is disaster….and they’re always “my bad” “oops” “sorry bout that, folks”….and they’re still praised out the wazoo….for doing what, exactly…? Somebody please tell me.
More on food from Raj Patel here.
Here’s a link Patel mentions in his blog on the hunger summit.
So it’s hardly surprising that almost 200 African farmers’ and campaigners’ groups have rejected the G8’s New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, calling it a “new wave of colonialism” in a statement sent to G8 leaders earlier this week. Their analysis is clear: “Private ownership of knowledge and material resources (for example, seed and genetic materials) means the flow of royalties out of Africa into the hands of multinational corporations.”
The real causes of hunger are inequality of wealth and power, not a lack of big business.
We don’t want your GMO’s. We don’t want your money. We want decent, livable wages to pay our own way.
