    The UN recently came out and suggested that the Occident should eat some of the 1900 bugs that people eat in the third world.

    Daniel Greenfield listed the menus of the UN bigwigs at a couple of their meetings on Front Page Magazine. He says that on the UN delegates dining room the menu read:

    "Sugar Cane Glazed Chilean Sea Bass, Skillet Seared Atlantic Salmon, New Zealand Rack of Lamb, Roasted Loin of Lamb, Crispy Red Snapper with Langoustine and Medallion of Filet Mignon."

    He adds: "Meanwhile at the 2002 United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization summit on food security, delegates ate bugs. And by bugs, I mean they ate goose, lobster and foie gras. Also on the menu were Salmon with peppers and polenta, Lobster in vinaigrette and Fillet of goose with olives."

    As George Orwell wrote in Animal Farm, "ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL
    BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS."

    Wouldn't you think that the UN would be concerned about improving the food supply of others?

    (Jonah 4:11 [KJV] And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and [also] much cattle?)

    Ummmmph!!!! Saw this story locally...

    Why is it that these news stories try to put a guilt trip on th average Joe/Joette? The world DOES produce enough food for EVERYONE, but governments pay farmers NOT to produce, food is dumped rather than sent to where it is most needed....would theworld economy REALLY collapse if this was the case.

    Melanie, you hit the nail on the head! Thanks! The UN bigwigs are living high on the hog and telling the rest of us to eat insects as destitute people living in squalor do. Well, it is surprising that the UN is not telling us to go vegan and stop eating living animals but you are 100% correct when you say that we got lots of food in this world. The UN needs to downsized drastically and we need to get on with the business of trying to attack squalor.
