Today has yet to dawn. No sun on the Eastern horizon as of yet. Although it's so cloudy and miserable out I would be able to see it anyway!
Today I am thankful for the consumers who buy US made dairy products. Who have educated themselves and care about the small farmers (who should be put on the endangered species list). Who buy local and support us. WHO know that if it's higher than the store price you are getting a better product (more than likely) . BUY LOCAL, SUPPORT your family farmers!
Remember dairy products don't have COOL (country of origin labeling), but so do say where they were manufactured. See this... never will I buy Nestle's anything again. Or Borden for that matter. I'm sorry but I want to eat US made cheese, not cheese from Mexico (mozzarella I believe, don't quote) , Australia (we import American cheese from there), or cheese made from MPC's that come from India. I'm sorry... I'm just picky I guess.
OK, I have one tiny little rant. It's not good for me to be totally awake in the AM's. This is what burns my biscuits. I am tired of people who down grade what is happening to farmers. Saying well everyone is hurting not just farmers. EXCUSE ME!!!!! We KNOW this country is hurting, but there is a difference when you keep putting if off on the farmers to keep food prices low so you can go buy TV's, cars, second and third homes, etc. This country economy was once fueled by the farmers. If we did good, so went the country. Now not it's not so. If people are spending money left and right, going in debt for STUFF this country is doing well.
Sigh...During the boom years of agriculture farmers did well, the housing market did well, this NATION did well. No we didn't have every new gadget that came on the market, but we had quality of life. Now the more we advance, the further behind we fall. Could anyone live with out their cell phone for 1 week? Computer/internet? TV shows?
What happened to books? Seeing people face to face? Writing letters... you know with stationary, a pen, a STAMP!?
OK... I need to say this also. Sorry for the rant... there are just times it all bottles up and I can't stand another person saying I have it worse than you, when you are going through some pretty nasty stuff.
I don't care who you are there is always something worse out there happening. But this does not mean we need to stop giving compassion to people who are facing hard times of their own. What happened to compassion and caring? When did this Nation turn into a ME ME ME and ONLY me country?
