Those are some really good points, Tink...I remember in Iowa (and did not understand the nationwide significance of this at the time) but...I met 3rd generation family farmers forced off their land by the farm corporations and into that oppressive senior housing. Then after the takeover, the agribusiness destroyed the land's fertility so carefully nurtured by the generational farmers.
And as I look into all this, I do often think of the Shakers; a documentary some decades back explained how they do everything the very best work they are capable, full ethics too.
I am still a bit confused by Right v. Left. I always considered myself conservative, but for example when my home overlooked a river flood plain that filled with floodwater every 5 or 10 years, I advocated to deny a builder permits to build low-income housing down there -- apartments to be filled with handicapped, seniors, single moms and kids. With just one neighbor I worked on this and we were successful, but that advocacy we did was considered dangerously left-wing even commie sort of. But I would have thought my advocacy, saving lives as it did, was conservative!
Then just maybe five years later the whole flood plain filled with 15 feet of rushing water - again - and I was SO glad I had taken that on that advocacy...my friend Rosina and I called ourselves the Friends of the Borst Bottomlands! (Borst was the name of a pioneer family who farmed there.)
So I'm still not sure what conservative/liberal really means, but I know when something seems to make sense and Tucker often does make sense. I trust almost nothing on CNN/MSNBC. (But I do like to watch Anderson Cooper especially when he talks about his mother.)
