I'd like to know if FEMA is doing this all over the country. Since a farm just can't get up and move away, then they are sitting ducks for confiscation and take over.
I would bet they are. Its only logical...
Of course, being the government, they are not going to come right out and admit this is
what they are doing, they claim they are making "food assements".

Monitoring global agricultural crop conditions during the growing season and estimating potential seasonal production are critically important for market development of U. S. agricultural products and for global food security. Two major operational users of satellite remote sensing for global crop monitoring are the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) and the U.N. World Food Program (WFP). The primary goal of FAS is to improve foreign market access for U.S. agricultural products. The WFP uses food to meet emergency needs and to support economic and social development. Both use global agricultural decision support systems that can integrate and synthesize a variety of data sources to provide accurate and timely information on global crop conditions.
1. Integrate relevant NASA Earth Science data into modeling and operational systems to enhance the accuracy and timely assessments of global agricultural crop conditions.
2. Provide NASA satellite data-based, operational solutions to the USDA FAS and UN WFP, by leveraging existing capabilities of these two user organizations and of the GES DISC.
1. Develop agriculture-oriented land products based on MODIS and TRMM.
2. Develop agriculture-oriented hydrologic products based on TRMM and other satellites.
3. Generate MODIS 250-m, 10-Day composite surface reflectance product.
4. Develop Agricultural Information System (AIS) based on GES DISC's Giovanni data exploration and analysis tool.
5. Integrate NASA products into USDA FAS Decision Support System.
6. Integrate NASA products into UN WFP Decision Support System.

One of the farmers mentioned his daughter had a summer job monitoring satellite picts and running programs to determine crop yield. She said you could just about read a trucks license plate!
So you would let victims starve while you sit on top of a large supply of food nearby? You would punish innocent victims because you have an issue with the government helping disaster victims survive?

For a highly revealing personal account by two emergency medical personnel who were participating in a conference in New Orleans at the time of the hurricane, see their gripping story at www.truthout.org... The mainstream media has largely avoided reporting devastating personal stories which reveal all that is being covered up. For more on how corporate ownership of the media blocks key stories like this, see www.WantToKnow.info...
For those who are ready to go even deeper, first read FEMA's own description of its founding here. Then, learn the deeper aspects of FEMA's shady beginnings at en.wikipedia.org...

To me, it seems, FEMA is dong something similar. confiscate the food, so everyone else around me starves to eath, so they themselvesd, meer humans like you and me, can live. how screwed up a deal is that! in america, yuor suposed ot have the right of private property* so no one can take yuor stuff! thast the seperation of our democracy and communism. under socialsim, after WWII, in gemany, thier bill of rights, states the government can take public land..but for the good of the commonwealth* FEMA seems to be acting desperate over something...wonder what they know is coming our way...yuor land means yuor land and whats on it* thier curbing it, so they can strip it away from you. its illegal and wrong.
FEMA seems to be acting desperate over something....
When less than 1% of the population is engaged in feeding the entire population and those being fed don’t actively, and positively support the one percent, then the 99% should be happy when they are left to feed themselves....When Marie Antoinette was told that the peasants were threatening revolt because they had no bread, she said, “Let them eat cake.” When we are faced with rampant hunger because of the regulatory, financial, trade and foreign policies of the past 100 or so years, those of us who have been crying from the roof tops for people to take an interest in what really sustains them may be very well justified in saying, “Let them eat grass.” Doreen Hannes
See this is where a person considered on the left end of the spectrum is proud to have Republicans and Libertarians as part of his brotherhood....

While I would agree that it is the job the government has taken upon themselves, clearly they
have failed in delivering - case in point - as it is made here in the video - Katrina.
I will not forget the pics of George Bush eating cake with McCain at a big birithday bash
while Katrinas floods ravaged on.
