The Societal Ramifications & Consequences of the Making and Taking of Food

This site dedicated to the matters of food above and beyond the mere satiation of flavors on one's palette; but rather the ramifications to society from the consequences of how its' production, distribution, and nutrition affect living systems. How we sow, reap, harvest, legislate and base our economic systems on food is key to how we ultimately treat each other and the Earth.

Congressman Lungren: "Let Them Eat Cake"

This account per a constituent of Lungrens:

"Lungren's Rancho Cordova town hall went like his other 2: over 400 people arriving and less than 1/2 getting inside, rowdy Repubs yelling and Dems waving signs. Lungren was his usual unsympathetic self when an insured woman told him her plight. She has to pay $5000 upfront in copays before she can get a life-saving surgery. Lungren told her she should contact a charitable society to see if she could get them to help her find the money. Tight wad, and cold heart -- his usual self. But I think the Dems made a good showing that we're serious about health care reform, and we did it against a paid, national and extremely organized lobbyist-led organization. Made me proud to be a Democrat!"
