As more move to the city,
does rural America still matter?

Gannett Newspapers, by Christopher Doering

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/13/2013 5:47:34 AM

WASHINGTON — When the top cheerleader for rural America has some harsh words for the people he represents, it might be time to take notice. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack delivered a dire warning to the 51 million farmers, ranchers and other residents inhabiting rural America before a farm group in Washington last month. His message: Rural Americans are becoming less relevant in the country´s increasingly urban landscape and unless they find a way to reverse the trend their voice will continue to fall on deaf ears in Washington and around the world.

Comments:
The words would bear hearing if we didn´t already know what a dunce Vilsack is.

When I saw the publisher was Gannett Newspapers I quickly passed on this article. It´s not worth my precious time.

How does your cell phone taste?

Not a lot of food is produced in the urban areas.

Stop growing food for a year and see if you still matter to urbanites.

The growth in urban areas is due to the government paying women to have illegitimate kids.It has nothing to do with what goes on outside those boundaries. Urban America has little or no self funding apparatus,outside of corporate skyscrapers and corner restaurants, so they keep robbing suburbanites to finance their worry free lifestyles.
Food supplies are already under threat from the ethanol obsession and gov´t subsidies which make that farming more lucrative than produce industry.

Rural birthrates are down because most of those people have to pay for their own kids.
The urban growth rates have been boosted by illegal aliens not the usual suspects living in the city whose rates are flat lined.

UN Agenda 21---forced urbanization to save the sustainability of the planet. A worldwide plan to move the masses into the cities and then expand housing vertically instead of horizontally. George HW Bush signed America up for this so-called " new world order" and every President since then has taken steps to achieve the UN goal. It´s all there on the UN website.

If you want to have some fun, ask liberals to explain where food in the grocery store comes from. Believe it or not, most of them don´t have a clue about food processing. If it ever hits the fan, the cities will be emptied by people out looking for food. Until they run into the guns that is.

You know what? Living in rural America is harsh. Snowstorms, tornadoes, and electrical outages are common. And, it´s very expensive. There are few apartment complexes which wrap together many utilities and services into your rent. There´s no gov´t. subsidized transportation.

Farmers demand low property taxes, meaning there´s usually substandard schools, teachers, administrators, cops, roads, parks, etc. They block every new public good proposed. Good doctors and lawyers don´t want to live there, as the low pay creates an unacceptably low return-on-investment. Firemen and EMTs are partially-trained volunteers.

A high concentration of religious people who actually walk-the-walk expect their neighbors to behave with good morals, and provide the public shame upon those who don´t in big heaping helpings. There´s no work, welfare support is discouraged, many people live far below the poverty levels of their urban counterparts.

If you´re not a farmer, there are few cultural events or the arts, outside of county fairs and tractor pulls. The landscape is dull, unless you enjoy looking at the ugly, useless wind farms. No mountains, no beaches, few lakes.

Yes, it´s true, farmers are the salt of the Earth and we all need to eat. But, let´s not kid ourselves. Rural living is no picnic. Even the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Chinese, Aztecs, Mayans, and Incas had cities. There must be something humans like about them.

#8...IU don´t know where you live but it isn´t like that in this part of the farm country. No, it isn´t utopia but not as bad as you painted. Schools here are fine, they TEACH subjects, once a year they put on a program to HONOR all Veterans and they sing and recite patriotic songs and writings such as the Pledge.

We have some of the finest Doctors here including many specialist. They just opened a new Surgical Trama center.

What he is saying vote democrat like farmers used to do. The supermarkets in those urban areas that vote democrat would run out of food in three days and the gangs will take what little is left. Those same urbanites who love Obama and I routinely see threatening Red State America have NO clue how vulnerable they are on the Survival ladder of life, no guns, dependent on Red State for Food, Energy, Mining and all the other natural resources, and many military veterans. The south was overcome by Northern Population and Industrial base, that is not true today. Obama is trying to goad us into something and he ain´t even been Inaugurated yet.

I am not sure where #8 lives but in my slice of heaven, waaaaaaay out in the middle of no where. The stars shine bright, taking a big deep breath of fresh air. Power outages? Generator or better yet just go off grid and do your own. Neighbors are neighborly and our volunteer fire dept is first rate trained by the Texas A&M Fire School..paid for by those of us here in the county who use their services. And yes rural America does matter because we are the ones who value and believe in the freedom , liberty and Constitution. We aren´t easy brainwashed and packed into the cities like cattle in a rail car. We will fight for what we believe in and yes we do cling to our bibles and our guns. We say yes sir and no sir, yes ma´am and no ma´am and mean it sincerely. We say grace, we know the Pledge by heart and know to put our hand over our heart when saying it. We are America, it´s foundation, it´s very heart. And this rancher doesn´t take anything from the federal govt except the crap it shoves at us. No hand outs, no subsidies...you will find most of that goes to big farm, big food and big pockets in Congress.

I think #8 needs to move. I wouldn´t live in a city if you payed me. We have better access to health care, better (less congested) roads, less crime, and a hell of a lot more guns. #14 s right. The very people with their grubby little hands out voting for their messiah will be the first to experience anarchy, hunger, and death if worst comes to worst.

Vilsack is pushing Agenda 21 where there is a mandate to push all citizens into cities, which are dens of corruption and free-wheeling murders.

Nice Guys Finish Last

In watching both the recently released Netflix documentary Mitt, as well as NBC’s putting out to pasture of Jay Leno (again), I was struck by the current cultural attitudes toward those generally perceived as “nice” people. Apart from the hackneyed “If it bleeds, it leads” response you’ll get from most people when the topic of how we treat household names in the media comes up, there is a real (and I would add sick) pleasure Americans experience when nice guys finish last. We like jerks. And if someone isn’t a jerk, but we don’t like their politics or street-cred as a

JUNEAU, Alaska – The U.S. State Department plans to create an Arctic ambassador position to highlight the growing importance of that region. In a letter to U.S. Sen. Mark Begich, Secretary of State John Kerry said he planned to name a "high-level individual of substantial stature and expertise" to serve as Special Representative for the Arctic Region. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said she had no personnel announcements to make, but might soon. Kerry, in the letter, said he believed it was vital to elevate Arctic issues and interests within the State Department. Nations across the world are hurrying to stake claims to

Earlier this week Senator Ted Cruz took to doing what he enjoys most: Lecturing the GOP “establishment” from his moral Mt. Olympus. Speaking critically about the vote to raise the debt limit, Cruz–who insisted on a 60-vote threshold to end debate on the measure–said some lawmakers are “willing to mortgage our children’s future” because they “care so much about being praised by the Washington media” and don’t think voters are paying attention. “But sometimes, come November, the people remember,” the junior senator from Texas declared. Actually, come mid-February, the people still remember. At least I do. I remember that Senator Cruz championed legislative

There was an audible gasp in the Senate gallery this week when Minority Leader Mitch McConnell voted “aye” to cut off a potential GOP filibuster of critical legislation to raise the $17.2 trillion debt ceiling. A long-time opponent of raising the nation’s borrowing limit without reining in costs elsewhere in the budget, McConnell, R-Ky., was expected to vote “no,” but instead played a critical role in ensuring its passage. He’s not only a fiscal conservative, but McConnell is also facing a Tea-Party backed primary opponent, making his support of the legislation not only a surprise, but a potential political risk. But McConnell´s move

The authenticity of the Shroud of Turin has been in question for centuries and scientific investigations over the last few decades have only seemed to muddle the debate. Is the revered cloth a miracle or an elaborate hoax? Now, a study claims neutron emissions from an ancient earthquake that rocked Jerusalem could have created the iconic image, as well as messed up the radiocarbon levels that later suggested the shroud was a medieval forgery. But other scientists say this newly proposed premise leaves some major questions unanswered. The Shroud of Turin, which bears a faint image of a man´s face and torso,

When President Obama told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in March 2012 that "after my election I have more flexibility," most assumed he was referring to foreign policy. It turns out Mr. Obama´s ambitions weren´t so limited. Earlier this week, Mr. Obama demonstrated his imperial flexibility again, delaying another important provision of the Affordable Care Act. For firms with 50-99 employees, the president waived until 2016 the requirement they provide health insurance or pay a fine. Also, companies with 100 or more workers can avoid most of the law´s penalties if they provide coverage to at least 75% of their workforce. The

C omcast is proposing to buy rival Time Warner Cable for $45 billion, combining the No. 1 and No. 2 cable TV providers in the country. The all-stock deal needs approval from each company´s board of directors — reportedly a done deal — the Justice Department´s antitrust division, and the Federal Communications Commission. The deal isn´t going to happen. Not in any recognizable form. First, here´s the argument for why it might: Comcast has 22 million pay-TV subscribers and TWC has 11 million, a number it has already suggested it could shave by 3 million under the deal. That would give the combined

Rutherford said he has shared a room with his executive assistant, Joshua Lanning, scores of times since taking office in 2011, a practice he says is a way to save money for his campaign fund. "We double-bunk in the campaign," Rutherford said. "We always double-bunk when we can. Totally as a cost-saving measure." Several human resources experts said superiors should avoid sharing a

Broadrrick, a former Arkansas nursing home worker, accused President Clinton of raping her during the late 1970s in a 1998 Dateline interview. Malzberg was describing a double standard of media coverage during the 2012 conventions, noting left wing pundits dubbed the GOP convention a “convention of rapists” while remaining silent on President Clinton’s keynote address despite sexual assault allegations directed against the former president. King interjected “Hold up, hold up. Stop! Bill Clinton was accused of rape?” Malzberg reacted

The Hill newspaper reported Thursday that documents released through a Freedom of Information Act request show meetings, events and phone calls where the two were together. They also show at

Ted Cruz’s latest filibustering of a Senate bill to increase the debt ceiling as self-destructive maneuver that achieved nothing — except, perhaps, hastened the destruction of the GOP. “What exactly was on Ted Cruz’s mind?” a boggled Reagan asked. “What was he thinking of in terms of his Senate colleagues?

CHATTANOOGA, TENN. — The UAW suffered a devastating defeat at Volkswagen’s plant here as workers rejected union representation by a 712-626 margin.The defeat, which came despite Volkswagen’s neutrality, tarnishes UAW President Bob King’s legacy and could make it next to impossible for the union to extend its reach beyond domestic automakers.
“While we certainly would have liked a victory for workers here, we deeply respect the Volkswagen Global Group Works Council, Volkswagen management and (German union) IG Metall for doing their best to create a free and open atmosphere for workers to exercise their basic human right to form a union,” King said in a statement.

At least every week now, there is a new story supporting the narrative of an inevitable 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential bid. Indeed, the conventional wisdom is that it is an absolute certainty that she will run. If anyone is currently saying, flat out, that Hillary isn´t running, I haven´t come across them. Is the inevitability of her run really as certain as the conventional wisdom suggests, and further, is it unfolding in an optimal manner for the potential candidate? In all likelihood, Clinton will not make a final, "go-or-no-go" decision until early next year, after the dust has settled from

The school of literary criticism known as reception theory holds that a text should be studied in light of its effect on its contemporaries, that a reader should be aware of the “horizon of expectations” in which a text is produced. I was reminded of this the other day as I observed, in amusement, fascination, and occasional pity, the reaction of the so-called mainstream media to Alana Goodman’s lengthy and rock-solid report on “The Hillary Papers.” This trove of previously unexamined transcriptions of conversations between Hillary Clinton and her best friend Diane Blair had been collecting dust at the University

I imagine the only thing worse than being forced to watch CNN inside an airport terminal is being forced to watch it in a doctor’s office.

The president of Family Health Care directed staff to block Fox News after a board member complained about our network’s coverage of the Affordable Care Act, an employee told me. “The board member complained that patients were turning the channel to Fox News,” said the employee who asked
