No Delicious Living
LuAnn picked up this free magazine at Kroger's called Delicious Living.
She said read this article and walked away. I think she knew I would get mad.
Some treehugger wrote about farmers and ethanol ruining the world in a so called free grocery magazine where I have invested thousands in 40 years.
My local Krogers is the only place I can buy E-85 and yet they hand out magazines disputing it? Left leg doesn't know what the right leg is doing!
Drea Knufken obviously never had a real job in her life or has any understanding how food is produced or what is really going on in the world.
We want peace but we start wars. We want food but we have to buy fuel. Did anyone ever really study our past?
A good farmer friend said Ed, you are getting cynical. Who me? I want my grandkids to have a life and a whole bunch of people are trying to ruin it for them!
We are dangerously getting to a point that people are so far removed from their food they don't understand the process, even if they got an A in Biology.
The best thing I have seen this year is LuAnn's garden. She is putting people right back to their roots, where "corn is grown and future farmers meet."
If I saw a family with a garden in their front yard, I would knock on the door and shake their hand.
But we are probably considered queer in this society!
Sorry for the rant, but the CEO of Kroger is going to hear me, guarantee you.
One of the VP's signed my paycheck for 8 years. He is a good man and will address this issue. He is a scientist from a long line of family farmers in Ohio.
All this hoopla this week and they are missing the point!
Food is basic, we all need to know how to grow it or trust those who do it. Everything else comes later.
