No jokes – this is honestly Federated Farmers new bumper sticker

Federated Farmers – the tiny elite of the National Party who shape environmental and economic laws to empower and benefit themselves at the cost of the wider country – have just finalised their bumper sticker competition (I know, why do they need bumper sticker competitions) and they have two winners this year.

This one, which is ‘Farmer funny’ – as in it isn’t…

…let’s just pause and consider the second one shall we?

Ummmm. Is this a bit of a God complex? ‘Farming is my superpower’ – you get the sense they want to start invading Iraq to attack ISIS.

NZ needs to evolve farming to sustainable farming, but with a god complex like this, you can see how resistant they will be to any change.

  1. Farming was sustainable and environmentally sound until the Banks got their fangs into it.

    And I agree, Federated Farmers is an unmitigated cluster fuck when viewed from the outside and an insidious and incestuous clique of Good Ol’ Boys from the inside.

    Federated Farmers has done more to hobble farming, manipulate farmer earnings and enable big city swindlings than any politician has ever done.

    In fact, I’ll go so far as to suggest Federated Farmers are the very mechanism which enabled The Great New Zealand Institutionalised Lie to perpetuate ,and become, the horrible, cancerous tumour of a thing it is today which encourages, amongst other things , the witch hunts levelled at actual farmers trying to survive by the greedy pre millennial’s who snivel about cow shit while they hold their hands out waiting to be fed, clothed, housed, transported, repaired in hospitals, educated etc. None of which would be possible without farmer earned foreign exchange.
    Big ronnie trotter is a good example of one of those elite who knew how to manipulate the farmer and, by the same token, farmer money. roger kerr described trotter as a giant among giants. More like a crook among crooks .

    I’d like to see actual NZ Farmers form a Union, weld themselves to their down-stream service industries then everybody go on strike for a year . No compromises. Then? When your gut’s start rumbling? Then get cute with a dissapointingly dim witted critique of a bumper sticker competition designed by traitors to deliver the wrong message to the ignorant to make sure you city people keep on hating on the farmer.

    The Media’s brainwashed the average Kiwi Joe , of which there are many, into clawing at their hair in despair if they see a farmer drive by in a new car or enjoy a hard earned lifestyle but if a property developer/lawyer/real estate agent/ drives by in a Bentley they rejoice in his or her business acumen.

    The New Zealand Farmers Union would indeed be a mighty weapon against the fancy scumbags who parasitise them.

    • Farming was sustainable and environmentally sound until the Banks got their fangs into it.

      Actually, it wasn’t. Jared Diamond puts the collapse of the Roman Empire partly on the collapse of farming due to over farming. The invention of fertilisers in the 1940/50s actually made things worse.

      None of which would be possible without farmer earned foreign exchange.

      All that you list there would be possible without foreign exchange and a lot more as well. In fact, we’ve never needed foreign exchange and never will. It’s more of a nice to have than a need.

      I’d like to see actual NZ Farmers form a Union, weld themselves to their down-stream service industries then everybody go on strike for a year . No compromises. Then?

      And that would be the arrogance that the post was highlighting.

      Can we do without farmers? No but that doesn’t mean we should put up with their BS either. Farmers should be at the forefront in protecting the environment. Instead, they’re complaining about having to do so.

  2. sustainable farming, no such thing.
    Maybe the closest group of humans that lived ‘sustainable’ lives was the Australian Aborigine, and even they managed to kill off the mega fauna.
    And to feed the 7 billion humans we currently have the farmers are going to have to ‘grow’ as much food as humans have consumed in the past 50,000 years or so
    Not to mention China, oh and water ) maybe lucky for some Chinese, they now own New Zealand.
