Viewers React: Gas Tanks, Future of Farming & Snakes

Mar 27, 2013

***Editor’s Note: The following are viewer comments in response to the March 23-24, 2013 edition of U.S. Farm Report…

#1: I noticed a fuel tank (on your show) over 118 gallons. This is an "act of terrorism" according to Homeland Security. Check the website of U.S. Custom Harvesters to monitor means to change this law…Another goof on the part of congress. Harry Wallace

#2: Hello John Phipps, I watch your show every Saturday morning and you have mentioned several times your concern about the future of farming. So I am curious have you heard about Agenda 21? The EPA and UN have joined forces to make our world a better place. They are planning on creating “sustainable communities”, you should read it. In the end farming will be owned by big business. Three-fourths of our land will be wildlife sanctuaries and people will live in what is known as "stack em and pack em" housing. I really enjoy your show keep up the good work. By the way I am neither a farmer nor a Rancher. Bea Riley

#3: You said economists are pretty sure we can only spot bubbles in hindsight. Then you said that farmland is not a bubble and won't burst. Why would you say we cannot predict bubbles immediately before making a bubble prediction? I found it amusing. Kerry M. Bryson - Union County, Mississippi

#4: Dear Mr. Phipps; While watching the U. S. Farm Report this morning and watching your very interesting presentation on farming in Tanzania, Africa, you described one snake (do not remember the exact name of it) as the most venomous and most aggressive snake in the world! While you may be correct in the aggressive part of your statement I think you erred on the most poisonous part. While visiting the Australian Zoo (formerly Steve Irwin's Zoo)I saw a sign for a snake that is the most venomous snake in the "World" as 1 drop could kill 100 men and there is no anti-venom for it! I realize this wasn't part of the question for your "Mailbag" but wasn't sure how else to let you know as I certainly do not want you giving out "false" information!!! Sincerely Yours - Kenneth Naysmith
