National Cattlemenís Beef Associationís Betrayal of Its Own Industry
The American Policy Center ^ | October 16, 2019 | Tom DeWeese

My address to the Colorado Independent Cattlemen’s Association

I’m not a cattleman and I’m not going to pretend I know everything you are facing. But I do know that the major weapon being used against your industry is the misnamed control devise called Sustainable Development. I know why and I know who the players are. I hope I can leave you today with some ideas on how to fight them.

To begin, let’s set the terms and make one thing very clear. The use of the word sustainable may sound like a comfortable term, not threatening. After all, you, your parents, and those before them have probably been successfully working the same land for decades. That’s true sustainability. But that is not what it means to those forces pushing that term today. Sustainable today means sustained control. Sustained power. And very soon – sustainable poverty for many.

Most people immediately equate Sustainable Development with environmental policy. Of course, concern for the environment is the justification most often used for its implementation. But, in fact land, and economic control are at the heart of Sustainable policy and, assuming it is simply good environmental stewardship proves to be a serious and dangerous mistake.

The term “Sustainable Development” was born on the pages of the 1987 United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development. It is basically the policy for the implementation of Agenda 21 which came along in 1992. The announced purpose of Agenda 21 was a “comprehensive blueprint for the reorganization of human society”.

Man, Sundays around here used to be pot roast for dinner. Now I just hang a picture of it on the crock pot and make a skillet of Hamburger Helper.

I sell probably more than half my yearly calf crop to individuals bypassing the big packers.

Once you taste grass fed beef and not beef that has had grain poured through it, every individual would search out grass fed beef.

There is nothing better than meat off of a calf that was eating grass and sucking his mama before being butchered.

Thanks Robert A Cook PE. There's a new "report" from some alleged physicians about the DASH diet (sidebar).

I suspect almost any isle will have at least one armed guard. However, one doesn't expect a simple aisle to have an armed guard.
