Some people think that humans should not be allowed to cut down trees for human use. They say that trees are as important as humans and should be saved and protected. God explained that such ideas were foolish. God made the environment to provide His creatures with necessary supplies to live on earth. Even many animals provide services for humans and must not be viewed the same as people. God says humans will live beyond this life, but the entire creation, including trees, will be destroyed (2 Peter 3:10). Thank God for wood and food animals. Our purpose in life is not to save the planet, but to obey the Creator (Ecclesiastes 12:13) Apologetics Press

First we do things for ourselves, then our families, then our clients, then our client's clients. All efforts are first self centered, but if they are to have lasting and far reaching effect, they must be helpful to the largest majority of those in your circle of influence. When someone tells me they are only working to help others, I am immediately suspect. This is a line of reasoning that seldom changes. Darol Dickinson

I don't understand the intricate things of Braunvieh genetics. However, I know a normal person can dig into, understand a breed, and change them in any direction to perfection. The important thing is to market as you gain perfection, to pay the bills, and buy a few ranches while you work to reach your highest goals. Darol Dickinson
I want the youth to be our future, but only after they become responsible adults. Darol Dickinson

Like a vaudeville audience, we are trained to sit in the theater and watch performances from a specific angle. In our case, the angle of the media; often the press releases provided to the media by federales. The real view is from back stage, where the make-up is applied. In the last few years we are being re-trained to take a peak under the heavy stage garb; it don't look so good. Darol Dickinson

Socialism is worshiped by both the lowest under achievers and the highest wealth distributors.

We've witnessed a fire sale of personal liberties at bargain basement prices, in return for the false promise of more security... The USA being designed right now won't resemble the USA we've been defending... The danger isn't that Big Brother may storm the castle gates.

When the U.S. Imports two billion dollars more beef each year than they export, no matter how much money vilsack says they are earning, what country do we buy the meat from that is exported?

Fred Koch emphasized rugged pursuits, requiring them to do farm labor at the family ranch. The Kochs lived in a stone mansion on a large compound across from Wichita country club; in the summer, the boys could hear their friends splashing in the pool, but they were not allowed to join them. By instilling a work ethic in me at an early age, my father did me a big favor, although it didn't seem like a favor back then,???? Charles has written. By the time I was eight, he made sure work occupied most of my spare time.???? David Koch
second wealthiest family in USA.
Well, let me tell you a story. It all started when I was a little boy. One day, my father gave me an apple. I soon sold it for five dollars and bought two apples and sold them for ten. Then I bought four apples and sold them for twenty. Well, this went on day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, until my father died and left me three hundred million dollars! David Koch
The dark history of American food experimentation dates back earlier than WWII, and the millions of dollars spent on the NAIS scheme to date demands that those resisting NAIS must be re-educated on the so-called benefits of food industry transformation, or be silenced, by demonizing, radicalizing, and death threats.

If USDA statistics are trustworthy, and we actually have 1.4 million premises that should be registered under the NAIS, then every sale barn, vet clinic, livestock hauler and backyard chicken raiser must grow another 11.26 head of cattle in order to meet our consumption.

You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

Lean beef is good for you... ?and the key word is 'lean.' A heart patient can eat steak at every meal if it is in the right proportions. Longhorn meat on the average contains 10% less saturated fat than that of other cattle.

No matter how worthy the cause, it is robbery, theft, and injustice to confiscate the property of one person and give it to another to whom it does not belong.

If you ask me to name the proudest distinction of Americans I would choose, because it contains all others,?the fact that they were the people who created the phrase to earn money...

The words to earn money hold the essence of human morality. Henry Rearden

We want to make sure we're not over-playing the hand on the federal side because there is state inspection, and there's a tremendous amount of self-regulation. Our food is a .9999% safety rate.

Begin - to begin is half the work, let half still remain; again begin this, and thou wilt have finished. Marcus Aurelius
(121-180 AD)
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. Marcus Tullis Cicero
(106-43 BC)
Of all the occupations from which gain is secured, there is none better than agriculture, nothing more productive, nothing sweeter, nothing more worthy of a free man. Marcus Tullis Cicero
