The first, full week of my cold turkey withdrawal from my “political addiction” is going better than expected. In the last seven days, I have yet to post, re-post, or comment on anything political on social media, save a few tweets. Additionally, I have limited my TV News time to (2), 15-minute periods a day.
My wife might not agree, but I think this has made me a happier person.
So while this post will mention a politician, it is not to enter the fray, but to call attention to the fact that he knew so much about what he didn’t know..
So, this story is about farming and not Michael Bloomberg.
That being said, back in November of 2016, Bloomberg, while addressing a group of business school students at the University of Oxford, England, said he could “teach anybody” to farm. A video of that speech resurfaced in February of 2020 while Bloomberg was still seeking to democratic nomination for President.
“Its a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, you add water, up comes corn. You can learn that,” he said. Then he added that working in the modern information economy requires “a lot more gray matter.”
Please take two minutes to watch this video posted to Twitter by a young, non-stereotypical farmer. I call the video:
It is entertaining and informative and easily worth two minutes of your time.
Thanks to all the men, women, and even children that work countless hours so we can feed our families because as some of us know, food doesn’t start in the back room of a supermarket.
And…thank you to @JoelEngle for sharing this.
