USA: Food Stamp Nation? Australia Selling Birthright?


Today’s Wall Street Journal has the following:

Food Stamp Nation
Wall Street Journal – Jan 20, 2012

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s latest data, a record 44.7 million people participated in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program in fiscal 2011 at a $75.3 billion cost to taxpayers. That’s up from 28.2 million and $37.6 billion in 2008. Some four million people are now on food stamps in Texas, with California (3.7 million) and Florida (3.1 million) close behind. In absolute numbers, President Obama has presided over a food stamp boom. ..

Food stamps were intended to help the truly needy so children wouldn’t go without nourishment, but Washington is slowly turning it into one more entitlement for millions of Americans.

The USA is having problems and the above is another sign.

Of course, it is not just the USA.  Notice a problem that they are discovering in Australia:

Concerns in Australia over foreign land ownership

A new report shows the amount of agricultural land now under foreign ownership in Australia has risen 60 per cent over the past 3 decades.

The figures, released by the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences, follows a series of high profile land acquisitions by foreign firms last years, raising concerns among local farming groups.

The issue of foreign ownership of agricultural land in Australia came to the forefront last year, when the Chinese state owned mining firm, Shenhua Watermark Coal purchased 43 farms in the state of New South Wales. In that same year, Qatari state firm, Hassad Foods acquired 8000 hectares of farmland in the state of Victoria.
That’s in addition to more than 130,000 hectares of farm land it own across Australia.
11pc of farm land foreign-owned
The National Farmers Federation (NFF) says it is concerned by the rising level of foreign investment in agricultural land and says it welcomes more regular research into the issue.

Land has historically been considered a birthright and selling farmland, while temporarily helping the economy, poses a variety of risks.

I have been warning for a couple of years now that China may get a bit too interested in Australia and may actually end up with much or all of it.  The more of it that China and its citizens own, perhaps the more justified the Chinese will feel if they do, in fact, take Australia over.

Of course, China and the Middle Eastern nations are not only buying up farmland in Australia.  Africa is increasingly receiving this type of “foreign investment” which the purchasers hope will insure that they will be able obtain food from in the event of food shortages (which are biblically expected per Jesus’ words in Matthew 24:4-8).

The consequences will not be good.

When will Jesus return? 2018 or 2019?
