I’m so glad to know that the real food movement has triumphed. We no longer need to worry about the big issues and we can now spend our time quibbling over the very minor little details that divide us. I’m THRILLED to know I no longer need to worry about the problems on the real food horizon; whether or not someone eats a particular style or a particular food is really the most important thing we have to discuss.
I’m thankful that the real food movement has removed its focus from the real enemy. I can now wipe all of these worries off of my plate.
It’s an awesome idea to have one company patent and own most or all of the seeds in the world and make it impossible to re-plant seeds from last year’s crop. That crop needs pesticides that only Monsanto sells. Big Business always has our best interest at heart, so we can trust them.
Hey, human experimentation isn’t all that bad, is it? Lining the pockets of industry while the food makes you sick is ok, it makes the economy go round! The health care industry needs your support.
I’m glad to hear everyone is so educated about the health effects of certain foods that we don’t need to worry about preaching that gospel anymore. Amen! Hallelujah! We can move on now, the processed food industry has collapsed from lack of sales.
The Right to Choose Our Own Foods
The FDA says you have no fundamental right to choose what you eat. Of course, we don’t need to be concerned, they have our best interests at heart. Self-determination isn’t important anyway, right?
Right to Enter Into Private Contracts With Farmers
In most states in the US, you can not enter into a private contract with a farmer to purchase a cow and have the farmer board and milk the cow for you. Yeah, interference with private contracts isn’t a problem at all- surely they’ll stop at the cows and won’t interfere with any others. I mean, why board a cow when you can get milk from the grocery store?
Keeping the Local Family Farm in Business
Let them go under, we can just buy food from the grocery store using those yummy Monsanto seeds. Local food and economy is so yesterday.
Right to Grow Our Own Food
Who wants to be bothered with choosing what you grow and knowing the growing conditions to produce the tastiest and most nutritious fruits and veggies? I’m so glad to know I no longer need to worry about sunburn and dirt under my nails and I’m happy to have free time. Say, what’s on TV?
I really appreciate knowing we no longer have to worry about milk or meat containing hormones that have an effect on humans or tainted food products coming in from China. A little bit won’t kill ya.
Big Ag Lobbyists
Surely we don’t need to worry about our representatives being swayed by the money, jobs, favors and influence held by lobbyists. Lobbyists always have the voice of the people as their guiding light. The people paying them are so altruistic.
Yeah, it’s ok for companies to fund and conduct their own studies to show us how safe their products are. We trust them to tell the absolute truth to the FDA panel that decided whether or not their millions of dollars in investments will sink or swim. That company doesn’t care what their stock does tomorrow morning or what their investors think, it’s no skin off of their nose.
Seriously, I’m sure they all laugh every time there’s a real food side show that pulls our attention away from the real enemy. Let’s not get so lost in the details that we forget who we’re really fighting, and it shouldn’t be each other.
Don’t get distracted by the rabble-rousers. Our movement isn’t about individuals or personalities, it’s about our health and our children’s future.

Thank you! This needed to be said and I’m glad you said it! All the stupid ‘real food fights’ I’ve witnessed lately online have caused me to roll my eyes and hit ‘unsubscribe’ many times…. I’m tired of endlessly debating the silly details, let’s eat to the best of our ability and take on the REAL “enemies”!

Thanks, KerryAnn. I agree. We need to have each other’s backs, not stab each other’s backs 😉
