In Defense Of Farmers

BY Herschel Smith
7 months, 2 weeks ago

Michael Bloomberg has made an ass of himself recently, even more so than usual.  Let me stipulate first of all that I’m sick of hearing his idiotic commercials over YouTube or wherever, and it only increases my hatred for him.  But beyond that, there are a few things we should cover.

Bloomberg has been caught on tape saying this.

Just a few hours after a video began circulating online showing the former NYC mayor and current 2020 presidential candidate suggesting that American farmers and factory workers lacked the IQ of tech workers, a second clip began making the rounds on social media showing Bloomberg saying society should deny medical care to the elderly to keep health care costs from “bankrupting us.”

“If you’re bleeding, we’ll stop the bleeding. If you need an x-ray, you’re gonna have to wait,” Bloomberg told a Jewish family, explaining his view on how our medical system should work.

“All of these costs keep going up, no one wants to pay any more money,” he continued. “And at the rate we’re going, health care is going to bankrupt us. So not only do we have a problem, it’s gonna be [unintelligible] and say which things we’re gonna do and which things we’re not. No one wants to do that.”

“If you show up with prostate cancer, and you’re 95 years old, we should say, ‘Go and enjoy…Lead a long life. There’s no cure, we can’t do anything.’ A young person, we should do something about it. Society’s not willing to do that yet.”

Yea, that comes from a man who supports the fleecing of America for socialized medicine, social security (which steals from the American worker and prevents him from being able to invest his money for care later in life), and increased immigration (which increases our medical care burden).  So he’s a eugenicist.  Very well.  Blow it out your ass, Michael.  Let them take you first.

Then there’s this appalling statement.

In a clip just now circulating online, Bloomberg, while speaking at Oxford’s Said Business School back in 2016, explained that “anybody [can] be a farmer,” but that it takes “a lot more gray matter” to “think and analyze” enough to work in the tech field.

“I could teach anybody – even people in this room, no offense intended – to be a farmer,” Bloomberg explained. “It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn. You could learn that.”

Bloomberg then switched to insulting manufacturers and tradesmen.

“Then we had 300 years of the industrial society. You put the piece of metal in the lathe, you turn the crank in direction of an arrow, and you can have a job,” he said.

I’m willing to bet Bloomberg is a danger to himself and others in a shop, and certainly wouldn’t know how to run CNC machinery.  But let’s put that aside for a moment.  Consider the farmer.

He’s a man who gets up before Bloomberg, and works harder.  He’s smarter than Bloomberg, and has to be a master businessman to make ends meet in today’s economy.  He’s a book balancing artist, a taxpayer, a purchasing agent, a critical path method (CPM) planner, and a manager of people.

He has to know the chemistry of fertilizers, crop rotation schemes, and machinery maintenance, and more than likely he has a bachelor’s or master’s degree in business, chemistry, accounting, agriculture or agricultural engineering.

He works harder than Bloomberg to feed the inner city elitists, and the inner city depends upon him and the lines of logistics he has developed.  Today, he not only has to fight the elements, high finance, the accounting books, availability of people, and machinery costs, but he has to fight the corporatists like Monsanto, Archer-Daniels-Midland and Bayer.  And yet, he perseveres, and he feeds the people in spite of the hatred of his profession among the elitists and corporatists who try to stop him.

Every day he exists on this planet, Bloomberg exhibits what an awful, despicable, worthless, bigoted, drain on society he is.  And you can add on top of all of this his horrible sociopathy, more specifically, his desire to lord it over other men with gun control.

I know that it isn’t exactly theologically correct, but it doesn’t matter.  Here, Paul Harvey’s “So God Made A Farmer” is appropriate.

    Look, I am the last guy to defend Bloomberg, so don’t get the wrong idea here. What he said about farmers came off as condescending, arrogant, and obnoxious. However, his words are partly being taken out of context, and the broader point he was making is in fact valid.

    He wasn’t talking about the contemporary farmer with a degree in ag and a capital investment of $3-4 million who singlehandedly plows 500 acres with a $200,000 John Deere guided by GPS to keep the rows straight. He was talking, almost in a Marxist/progression of history sense, about how most people in the past were engaged in subsistence agriculture, which DID take more work than brains (think illiterate Chinese or Vietnamese peasants spending their entire lives barefoot in a rice paddy), then subsistence agriculture was replaced by industry, which also took a lot of raw, unskilled labor, but now, the postmodern economy is eliminating unskilled jobs and many of the people who comprised the working classes of previous eras are not be capable of getting intellectually-oriented jobs in the post-industrial economy, and we (meaning “the elites”) need to figure out how to deal with them.

    It’s important that we understand our enemies, as Sun Tzu counseled, rather than distort what they are saying out of context. Bloomberg is an arrogant, authoritarian creep, but he is ABLE to be such because so many of our fellow citizens WANT the government to take care of them rather than to expend the effort, and assume the risk, to be self-reliant.

    Do not underestimate the fact that the power base of the Left is weak, stupid, fat and effeminate people who want the government to wipe their asses when they shit their diapers.

    And they vote.

    @X,

    But I would assert that even small farming, as you described, requires more planning and knowledge that you imply. Crop rotation, seed science, fertilizers, letting the earth lie fallow for a year or more (as is the case with peach farmers around these parts), planning for fallow years + years to grow new trees or fruit yielding plants, etc. etc., is a significant and meaningful knowledge base.

    Sure, there can be idiot people who throw seed on the ground and get a sprig from time to time, but that’s not what’s being discussed, neither with large nor small farmers.

    But if your main contention is that Bloomberg is bound within his Bolshevik matrix and cannot escape, I have no objection.

    @ X: Bloomberg’s comments were indefensible, regardless of his intentions – which given his history, were probably malignant anyway. The man can barely hide his condescension and contempt for the people of middle America. He’s apparently too dense and too arrogant to realize that he’d probably last about five minutes in the wild without the work of other better, stronger men keeping him alive.

    Billionaires don’t keep the shelves down at the local supermarket stocked, nor do they keep haute cuisine on the tables of the rich-and-famous. This country’s farmers and ranchers do that.

    And it takes a special kind of arrogance and myopia not to realize that if not for the work of the farmer and the rancher, he would be going hungry – and not sitting down to another high-class meal prepared by his personal chef.

    For the record and for the uninformed, farming is an extremely challenging occupation in this day and age. Frankly, family farmers and ranchers ought to be regarded as heroes for the challenges they face on almost a daily basis. They can do everything right, and still get blindsided by bad weather and see their season’s work ruined. When a bumper crop comes in, and the cattle are ready for market, many make far-less money selling their produce and livestock than they ought to.

    For most who stay in the occupation, it is a labor of love – a way of life that deserves to be perpetuated. Heaven knows, it certainly isn’t the big bucks keeping small-time farmers and ranchers in the game.

    I would also say, Herschel, that many of the farmers I know have been trading futures for a long time, it’s how they actually make money on commodities and once you learn how to trade futures in your own wheat it isn’t much of a jump to trade in all sorts of futures, but that it is an intellectual step too far for someone like Bloomberg.

    Farmers are electricians plumbers, mechanics, scientists, vets, engineers and soil conservationists. They take care of the crops that fill our larders and take care of the animals who provide dairy products and meat.

    In Wisconsin a dairy farm collective is part of a co-op that was formed over one hundred seven years ago by farm families searching for a way to develop a sustainable market for their dairy products. Thousands of co-ops like this have been destroyed by men like Bloomberg to whom a human being is just a cypher in an accountants ledger.

    And in reply to Mr. X: “…the very need to try and demean farmers is a sign he is subconsciously driven to assuage his own insecurity by demeaning others–an urge which if understood well can be used to get him to insult a lot of people.” And Trump is useing this psychology to his advantage showing Bloomberg to be the narcissistic totalitarian he is.

    The pissant known as Bloomberg was referring to the elitist, him and his ass licking socialists, and us, the deplorables that are despised by the Klintons, the black imposter, and the rest of the socialist crowd.

    This was not about our real farmers and tech workers. Bloomberg is as shifty as Adam Schitt and as big a liar as Jerry Nadler.

    Have you ever watched his business channel? It’s the creepiest thing. All around are more market data than a man can’t digest and use with anything more than 52% or so effective outcomes even with years of training and background; meanwhile out of the mouths of the commentators comes a constant stream of virulent communism. It’s a bazaar juxtaposition. He, I can only conclude, made his money by market manipulation, there can’t be any other explanation for a communist who has profited from trade in capital.

    The US healthcare system was effectively nationalized just after (’49?) WWII, with the requirement that companies offer insurance. (somebody knows more about this than me) There is a solution for the US healthcare costs. It’s scary, it’s weathering a storm in a dingy with a raging storm of unknowns, it’s called freedom to buy and sell, the actual goods and services, not the insurance, the actual goods. Healthcare, top of the line healthcare cost only 30% to 40% percent of what government and insurance companies recomp to providers. That cost would begin to drop even more it were a cash industry, and everybody paid cash, like any other product, and the quality would go up or at least natural tiers of quality would form. I know this because I pay cash for medical care. Providers love cash money. 60% percent of health care workers are compliance workers needed to satisfy government insurance regs and medicare/caid, ie paperwork. You would be shocked if you started to negotiate for services and goods based upon cash up front. The problem is a market that is no market at all and is in the full on grips of socialism.

    I’m certain that bloomberg has a solution to this problem: “And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;”

    US consumes about 12.42 Billion bushels of corn per year. 50 ears per bushel, that’s 621 Billion ears. 2 ears per plant means 310 Billion little holes to drop seeds in and water. Better get at it Mike!

    RE: “US healthcare costs”

    Co-op insurance incentives have been a good end run around Obamacare, which the RINOs will never repeal and are never mentioned by Trump or any Republican.

    Before the feds and state governments screwed things up doctors charged people according to their ability to pay. It was an honor system that worked for the most part. In one case a doctor sued a patient for faking his worth by “dressing down” and appearing to be below his income level. The doctor won the case and said “patient” had to pay up.

    The government corrupts everything it touches. National health care is the direct result of businesses lobbying government to take over the mandated health care that was breaking them financially. One GM CEO said he spent ninety per cent of his time working on health care instead of company business.

    Bloomberg has also come out for the death panels that Governor Palin warned us about.

    And speaking of government “takeovers” the coup continues apace.
    “Attorney General Bill Barr has tapped a growing number of federal prosecutors across the country to review high-profile Russia probes involving Trump associates and consider emerging allegations tied to Ukraine.”

    Can’t get more obvious than that. The only ppl going to jail will be loyal Americans.

    Re: “The government corrupts everything it touches. National health care is the direct result of businesses lobbying government to take over the mandated health care that was breaking them financially.”

    If one charts the cost of healthcare delivery on a graph versus time, from sixty years ago up to the present, healthcare costs as a percentage of national and household expenditures did not really begin to skyrocket until the federal government interposed itself between the consumers and providers. The same is true of higher-education costs, by the way, but that’s another discussion for another time.

    To add insult to injury, the American Medical Association then conspired with the federal government to enact admissions and licensing standards which intentionally limit the number of physicians which may enter the field each year. Thus artificially keeping M.D. salaries artificially high, and protected from market pressure.

    There’s more. The same cartels then allowed the lawyers to run wild as ambulance chasers. It wasn’t too many years before physicians, healthcare providers, insurers, everyone even remotely connected with healthcare began practicing defensive medicine. Otherwise known as “CYA” – cover your posterior. Thus driving spiraling costs even higher.

    Quite by accident, I had occasion some years ago to learn what a physician relative -who is a specialist in a high-risk area of practice – pays in annual malpractice premiums. It’s more than I make in a year. If you are outraged by sky-high healthcare costs, thank a lawyer…

    As an advanced-degree holding scientist with many years of experience in basic and applied science R&D, including employment at a Fortune 500 pharmaceutical & healthcare products company, I can personally attest to the fact that prescription drugs cost so much for consumers in large part because of government/regulatory meddling in the marketplace.

    Launching a promising new drug costs a cool billion dollars now, and even when new agents are approved by the FDA, it takes years for the companies to recoup their investments. Domestic drug prices remain higher than overseas in part because of crony capitalist arrangements made between the companies and the regulators. And because “everyone knows that the government/insurance industry will pay for everything anyway”…. and don’t even get me started about how screwed up the FDA is, or the damage they do to efficient and high-quality healthcare delivery in this country.

    Re: “Bloomberg has also come out for the death panels that Governor Palin warned us about.”

    It is but a short step from being willing to kill the unborn to being willing to kill the most-vulnerable members of our society at the other extreme of age – namely, the elderly.

    The left loves “death panels” for another reason: conservative/traditional voters cluster amongst the older cohorts of the population. Or, as the old joke has it, “Who is a conservative? Answer: A liberal who has been mugged” (or who pays taxes). The young tend to buy leftism but often -not always – age out of it as they live life and learn how things really work.

    Don’t doubt for a second that Bloomberg would form and empower “death panels” for the elderly – exempting himself and his fellow oligarchs, of course! Beneath that polished, urbane exterior, the man is a stone-cold killer.
