Rep. Walden Bello Philippine House of Representatives, ” the Philippines—and most other developing countries—lost out by joining the WTO nearly 20 years ago. Our agriculture and industry are now on their last legs”
Developed countries are still using the WTO to squeeze small farmers in the developing world–and developing world governments are going along with the charade.
NOOOOOO, Thanks, Bill and Melinda Gags, if you insist, you may eat them, better yet if you’re so concerned about overpopulation why don’t you just quit eating altogether and save the planet the expense of YOUR upkeep? Human beings are not a burden to the earth, but there may be exceptions to this truism…….it seems you are out to prove that you and your kind are a boil upon the butt of the solar system, so sad to watch your lunacy roll out and flow over the world through the corporate owned media……but maybe not so loony? Hummmm? Just think of the profits in all that “egg goo”! Now that’s brilliant beyond brilliant!

Jim Rodgers has been telling everyone in the world to look to agriculture and hard assets to invest in and that farmers will be the ones driving Lamborghinis in the next 20 to 30 years.
Rodgers’ Investment views from;
In 2002, Rogers said that Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan’s “reaction to the stock-market bubble has caused two more bubbles to grow: a real-estate bubble and a consumer-debt bubble.” In 2006, Rogers said he was shorting US financials, home builders and Fannie Mae.On November 4, 2010, speaking at Oxford University’s Balliol College, Rogers urged students to scrap career plans for Wall Street or the City, London’s financial district, and to study agriculture and mining instead. “The power is shifting again from the financial centers to the producers of real goods. The place to be is in commodities, raw materials, natural resources.”In May 2012 he remarked during an interview with Forbes Magazine that “there’s going to be a huge shift in American society, American culture, in the places where one is going to get rich. The stock brokers are going to be driving taxis. The smart ones will learn to drive tractors so they can work for the smart farmers. The farmers are going to be driving Lamborghinis. I’m telling you. You should start Forbes Farming.”
But seriously folks, not everyone can or wants to follow his advice and move to Singapore like he did; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Rogers
[…]In December 2007, Rogers sold his mansion in New York City for about 16 million USD and moved to Singapore. Rogers claimed that he moved because now is a ground-breaking time for investment potential in Asian markets. Rogers’s first daughter is now being tutored in Mandarin to prepare her for the future. He is quoted as saying: “If you were smart in 1807 you moved to London, if you were smart in 1907 you moved to New York City, and if you are smart in 2007 you move to Asia.” In a CNBC interview with Maria Bartiromo broadcast on May 5, 2008, Rogers said that people in China are extremely motivated and driven, and he wants to be in that type of environment, so his daughters are motivated and driven. He also stated that this is how America and Europe used to be. He chose not to move to Chinese cities like Hong Kong or Shanghai due to the high levels of pollution causing potential health problems for his family; hence, he chose Singapore. He has also advocated investing in certain smaller Asian frontier markets such as Sri Lanka and Cambodia, and currently serves as an Advisor to Leopard Capital’s Leopard Sri Lanka Fund. However, he is not fully bullish on all Asian nations, as he remains skeptical of India’s future – “India as we know it will not survive another 30 or 40 years”. In 2008 Rogers endorsed Ron Paul for President of the United States.[…]
But…………the signs are everywhere that this financial age is ending and the jobs and occupations of the future will not follow the post WW2 ‘upwardly mobile’, ‘rat race’ that has lead to our IT world that really does not need humans to function. So to survive our progeny our will have to look at different models of employment, investment, and survival. The future is hot on our tails………..
Traditional jobs just keep on being ‘farmed out’ to anyone who will accept the ‘opportunity’ to undercut the current holder of the job. Just one example from Canada;
[…]Dozens of employees at Canada’s largest bank are losing their jobs to temporary foreign workers, who are in Canada to take over the work of their department.[…]
This despite Canada’s workers’ protection guidelines,
[…]Displacement against rulesHowever, it is against federal rules for any company to bring foreign workers into Canada temporarily if it will put citizens out of work.“The rules are very clear. You cannot displace Canadians to hire people from abroad,” said Immigration Minister Jason Kenney.[…]
(Of course these undercutter job replacers will be disposed of by computer and robotics ASAP in the already begun robot age).
A world without humans? Not happening, but those PTB are crazy to try their experiments in eugenics and robotics, so the illusion of the modern world is soon breaking down to the realities of the thread of life here on this beautiful sustaining earth.
Looks to me as if Jim Rodgers prognostications about China, Singapore, and Asia as being the center of financial power are coming true.
Here are two supporting financial stories and a third interesting sociological story;
2012-11-22 — cnbc.com
“”It’s slightly surprising to see dramatic improvement in new export orders. We can’t see where this demand is coming from. If we’d seen a material improvement in the U.S. and euro zone it might make sense but there’s been no real change in global economy,” [Thornton] said.”
Hummmm, it has been noted that at a certain point China would no longer need the US and the rest of the consuming nations to support and finance their eminence in material world power. The above article indicates that China has another paradigm that is not well known to common main stream economists of the West, the China dragon is indeed able to sustain itself with the raw materials and technologies they have bought and developed and copied from the rest of the world as well as their own rich resources.
These are the company headquarters in China. They call them Broad Town. Yes, that’s a huge pyramid at the bottom.
Never mind its temperate 28C weather, low unemployment rate and high per-capita GDP – Singapore is the most emotionless society in the world, according to a new Gallup poll, beating the traditionally po-faced Georgia, Lithuania and Russia in a survey of more than 150 nations.
Asking respondents questions such as “Did you feel well-rested yesterday?”, “Were you treated with respect all day yesterday?” and “Did you smile or laugh a lot yesterday?”, the survey found that Singaporeans were the least likely to reveal experiencing any emotions at all.
Just 36% of Singaporeans reported feeling positive or negative emotions on a daily basis, while 60% of Filipinos recorded regularly feeling both – the highest response rate of any country worldwide.
“If you measure Singapore by the traditional indicators, they look like one of the best-run countries in the world,” Gallup’s Jon Clifton was quoted as saying in a Bloomberg report on the survey. “But if you look at everything that makes life worth living, they’re not doing so well.”
Lots to muse upon here, quality of life issues, how shall we then live?
It is a wonder how determined the planners of the world order via UN Agenda 21 are to stack and pack humanity into ever de-humanizing cities and towers when there is abundant land to be developed on this beautiful blue ball called Earth for according to one theory at least 35 billion people with present technologies (if wars were eliminated and the ‘greater good’ was really the goal of governments and ptb).
Here’s a few links on population theories;
Joel Cohen, who actually wrote a book on it, notes, the only reasonable answer is, “It depends.” The problem is so complex, with so many variables (think only about the vast discrepancy in resource consumption between one person and the next), that no one can actually give any serious answer to it.
China signed onto the population control band wagon to gain the industry and technology and financial powers to pull themselves into the modern world. Henry Kissinger and bankers of the western world cabal made them a deal they could not resist. Fast forward to today, the Asian shift has succeeded. What happens next bears watching and studying how Asia’s and China’s leaders play their pieces the world’s game of world order(s) now that the United States has been de-industrialized.
Government think tank urges leaders to allow two children per family by 2015
# Unpopular birth restrictions introduced in 1980 when population was rapidly expanding
# Has led to huge gender imbalance – as parents favour boys over girls – and contributed to aging workforce
# Proposal to phase out the policy put forward by officials close to the Chinese government
# Two-child policy planned for 2015 and all birth restrictions could be lifted by 2020
Yes indeed, lots to muse upon in the ‘modern world’ we live in today.
GM crops must be immediately outlawed; Monsanto halted from threatening humanity
Findings from the study
Here are some of the shocking findings from the study:
• Up to 50% of males and 70% of females suffered premature death.
• Rats that drank trace amounts of Roundup (at levels legally allowed in the water supply) had a 200% to 300% increase in large tumors.
• Rats fed GM corn and traces of Roundup suffered severe organic damage including liver damage and kidney damage.
• The study fed these rats NK603, the Monsanto variety of GM corn that’s grown across North America and widely fed to animals and humans. This is the same corn that’s in your corn-based breakfast cereal, corn tortillas and corn snack chips.
The Daily Mail is reporting on some of the reaction to the findings:
France’s Jose Bove, vice-chairman of the European Parliament’s commission for agriculture and known as a fierce opponent of GM, called for an immediate suspension of all EU cultivation and import authorisations of GM crops. ‘This study finally shows we are right and that it is urgent to quickly review all GMO evaluation processes,’ he said in a statement. ‘National and European food security agencies must carry out new studies financed by public funding to guarantee healthy food for European consumers.’ http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2205509/Fresh-fears-GM-foods-French-study-finds-rats-fed-controversial-crops-suffered-tumours-multiple-organ-failure.html
majoring in the program, which is open only to U.S. citizens.
It works with Northland Community College in Thief River Falls, Minn., which developed the first drone maintenance training center in the country and proudly shows off its own full-size Global Hawk.
The university also serves as an incubator for companies that might want to expand the industry. In five days, Unmanned Applications Institute International, which provides training in operating drones, can teach a cop how to use a drone the size of a bathtub toy.
Drones=tools with many uses good and evil. What can be done will be done, yet this applies to all tools and certainly the guidelines of responsibility are found within the US Constitution.

WORD to the wise here,
I rather think that would mean a reduction of agriculture and food, and causing thirst and harm of living beings. I hope the scientists and their financiers will extrapolate life as more important than playing God to ‘help’ the earth with their experiments to cool the globe.
This research is only possible through the public purse and is after all financed by the trusting unscientific mass proletariat through taxation of their labor and goods. It is cruel to violate that trust, cruel and criminal. Tread carefully because to whom much is given much is required of them.
