“The money and political power of Wall Street has stolen America’s food system, bankrupted our farmers and ranchers, mined our soils, polluted our environment, wasted our precious water, and left us with expensive industrially produced food that makes us sick.” – Occupy Wall Street Food Day, December 2011

E. Coli Confessions Part I
by John Munsell
| Oct 11, 2011
Editor's Note: This is the first part in a series written by John Munsell of Miles City, MT, who explains how the small meat plant his family owned for 59 years ran afoul of USDA's meat inspection program. The events he writes about began a decade ago, but remain relevant today.
They say that confession is good for the soul. I've been involved in a series of ugly events since my plant in 2002 recalled 270 pounds of ground beef contaminated with E.coli O157:H7 and now want to admit the embarrassing truth for public review.
I would add this book to your list: “Seeds of Destruction”, The Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation…by F. William Engdahl. You are a by-product of the takeover…you are just next in line…so you have to get up to speed in order to withstand what is coming at you….it has taken out the small agricultural farmers, including fruits, vegetables, and even flowers, now it is after the meat producers…it is already attacking raw milk and making organics a living hell….
Yes, amazing that our own government is turning against our own country’s SUSTAINABILITY and ABILITY TO RAISE HEALTHY WHOLESOME FOODS….!!!
Why is our government at war with our small food producers?
That book is on the list.
