    North Dakota Rules on the $13.5 Million Farmland Purchase of Bill Gates, Residents Are 'Livid'

    He got a favorable ruling on this addition to his 270,000 acres by donating 100 grand to a campaign coffer. Bill wants you to eat fake meat & GMO food. Bill wants to control everything it appears, he visited the White House twice this week. Concerning? Will anyone slow these leftists down? Not today…..because Joe. Joe is meeting with state governors this holiday weekend to figure out how the thwart the SC decision on Roe. They only accept rule of law when it favors them, otherwise……just be lawless is their motto. They can……you can’t.

    Pfizer's Former Top Scientist Warns About Next Pandemic

    Bill Gates has stated that COVID-19 was 'pandemic one,' and the next one will really get everyone's attention. For that, this 17-year veteran Pfizer scientist who's an expert in respiratory pharmacology warns they may launch a therapy similar to a go kart with no accelerator, steering wheel or brakes.

    I'm of the opinion that Distributism is the way to go, and that corporations shouldn't own land, nor should the uber rich. Land should be owned by productive families, not corporations, and the government should craft policy that encourages marriage, children, and yeomen farmers just as Jefferson thought it should.

    Taking an argument to the extreme is a good way to determine whether it's good or not. To that end, are we all to be OK if Bill Gates, or Bezos, or the Apple guy were to own entire states as the Libertarians/Current Conservative bent says?

    If all the farmland in Nebraska were owned by Bill Gates, would that be OK?
    If Bezos bought all of Appalachia, would that be OK?
    If all the private hunting land in a state were bought and nobody could hunt for their food on it, and the property just sat there, is that right? Is it moral?

    What the current Conservative/Libertarian perspective misses on the economy and land ownership, is that WE don't get to choose how land is to be used. God determines that. We are only to steward His will on earth. And I guarantee you His will isn't for corps to buy up all the land He created.

    Remindful of the 1920s, followed by the dust bowl. We are moving toward an aristocracy and serfdom working the land.
