Insurance Companies working to smash small farmers began a little less that a year ago when all raw milk producers in Connecticut were notified by their Insurance Companies, ordered by the underwriters whose ties to the bankers, and their governing bodies in Agribusiness such as Monsanto are quite strong. Each farmer was told in Connecticut and NATIONALLY that their annual rate would be over $1,000,000.00.
The Chemical Companies, such as Bayer, Dow, Monsanto, Norvartis etc. also own and control the largest seed companies, as well as being involved in the production of herbicides, pesticides, and their Genetically Modified seeds, formulated to allow the dumping of millions of gallons MORE of the herbicides into the soil, and entering our aquifers, and drinking water supplies.
The reason on the attack on the raw milk dairies is that thousands of mothers are using this wholesome product,which has a safety record BETTER that pasteurized milk as a cure for their childrens allergies, and other maladies.Why should the Agribuisiness Industry worry about this? Simply because they also control the perscription durg market, and their sales were drooping.Thus they ORDERED their patsys(the insurance underwriters) to direct the Insurance Companies to launch an attack on the Raw Milk producers.
An Interesting factor is that Ct farm Bureau formerly with Farm Family insurance switched to Ohio Agribusiness NATIONWIDE INSURANCE, which is also jacking up rates for new England farmers, WHILE CUTTING RATES FOR THEIR AGRIBUSINESS ALLIES IN OHIO. Ct Farm Bureau, while gaining footage for farmers in the past,took a new turn this year when it opposed the rights of the members of farmers families to choose the food they eat,which would have been revealed in the passage of the bill to label genetically modified foods(called GMO's) which go untested for toxicity in the marketplace. Not only do they oppose the farmers right to choose the food they eat, but they support Nationwide Insurance of Ohio. jacking up local farm rates .This is becoming financially painful for many farmers.
In the case of our farm, Aiki farms, which had been with Litchfield Mutual Insurancefor the past 12 years, with a perfect record of 0 claims each year, a fine investiment for any Insurance Company,was dropped, because of an allegation that a "martial arts business" could not be included in the policy. This allegation was reflected when Auto Farm Family, insuring many agribusiness farms in the south and West,took over Litchfield Mutual. If you google Aiki farms Website, and it's strong anti GMO position, there is no question that the Chemical Industry, and their sweethearts in agribusiness, dumping gallons an tons of toxic chemicals in to the soil each year, want a small scrappy organic farm off the grid. IT IS CLEAR THAT THE DROPPING OF AIKI FARMS FROM THEIR CLIENT LIST, AFTER 12 YEARS OF A PERFECT RECORD WAS NOT IN ANY WAY AN ACT FOR FINANCIAL GAIN...IT WAS POLITICAL 100%......This leads to the mortguage Company forcefully imposing a policy costing nearly four times the amount to the morgagee(Aiki Farms) or face foreclosure EVEN THO AIKI FARMS HAS PAID IN FULL......
While the term"capitalism" is no more than a shroud to cover the dirty nasty, and unethical behavior of a desperate group of manlipuators,this writer uses a term regarding this behavior as coined by America's Vice president in 1949 Mr Henry Wallace, as pure AMERICAN FASCISM draped in the cloak of"capitalism".
Aiki farms response to this is to find a true Yankee Insurance Company,with the sensitivity of the small farmer as it's watchword,holding highest both STATES RIGHTS and the sovereignty of our people, and begin to drive out the Chemical-Agribusiness lackies now being instilled by such anti-small farmers groups as the American Farm Bureau, Nationwide, Auto Farm & Ranch, and to free honorable Insurance Companies from Underwriters whose sole goal is to subvert and destroy the small farm, direct sales, and farmers market movement that is in in place, and so very popular,as consumers seek health through the foods we eat. Of course this hurts the legal drug dealers of the Chemical Bio-Tech Industry WHOSE PROFITS ARE GLEANED ENTIRELY FROM OUR BEING ILL AS A RESULT OF THE CONSUMPTION OF THEIR CHEMICAL LACED GENETICALLY MODIFIED TOXIC FOODS...which remain on the shelves of our supermarkets undetected.
While the current Governor lauds the Bio-Tech Industry as"creating jobs" we here in Connectiicut see the track record of that Industry Pfizer,finacially wreking our state with massive layoffs, downsizing, and millions of square footage of empty deserted buildings as a memorial of the Bio-tech Industry and their uncontrolable lust against the people of this State at our expense. This current Governor has openly opposed the bi-partisan force of our elected legislators who want to represent us by voting to label GMO foods in the marketplace.This Governor explicitly utilized fear i.e. "connecticut may be sued" to STOP DEMOCRACY IN IT's TRACKS by stopping our elected officials from voting on the labeling, ASSITING AND ABETING THE BIO-Tech Industry to HIDE it's subversive non-tested product being offered for sale in our Connecfticut supermarkets right here right now.
If all the Governors"Praise" of the Bio-tech Industry held on drop of Truth, he would be able to say..."YES I AM PROUD OF THE BIO-TECH INDUSTRY LET THEM LABEL THEIR WONDERFUL CREATIONS IN OUR FOOD SYSTEM, FOR THEY ARE A PROUD AND FORTHRIGHT ENDEAVOR WAVING HIGH THEIR BANNER OS HONOR." BUT HE SAYS " shhhhhh hide the darkness, lest their true identity be discoverd by all...secrecy and deceit, fear and suppressing democracy is what we need, shusshhh dont tell" Our former Vice president Henry Wallace would call this AMERICAN FASCISM....so how did we elect a fascist as our Governor...I mean he called himself a Democrat....????
We need a Governor who can give leadership to not only the consumer, but to those duly elected legislators, who stand behind us on a bi-partisan basis TO LABEL GMO foods.We need a Governor with the courage that our past Attorney General had to TELL THE TRUTH and to stand behind the people, not to be a lackey and a wimp for the wretched failing Bio-Tech Industry, to once again come in and victemize the people of Connecticut a la Chas Pfizer & Co.
American fascism according to Henry Wallace, employs fear, to suppress Democracy...it then was explicitly a fascist ploy for our Governor to use fear,"We might be sued"..to stop Democracy.."dont vote oin this bill" and that is about as clear as one can get.
Just in case you dont feel Governor Malloy opposes the voters....regardleess of political affiliation....why was CL&P never brought to task regarding their past, and current horrific performance in serving Connecticut? And why, right at this moment are we operating wiith a totally unreliable power system statewide,witout a massive outage to AGAIN prove the point.
This Blog is not about complaining, it is to present facts to agitate, and stimulate the constructive positive actions we as citizens need to know so that we ALL can become intelligent powerful activists, and make this land a wonderful place for our children to inherit.Not a place where the Bio-tech Industry can launch their attack on our kids by their unlabeled toxic foods.
Interestingly enough, the growing support to label Genetically Modified foods in the marketplace, and to create a GMO free America is key to STOP this concerted movement against small farmers locally and nationally. Google Ct Right to Know to keep abreast of these issues.
