Posted on 05/02/2012 12:53:00 PM PDT by Morgana
he revolutionary chaos Occucommies promised for May Day fizzled yesterday, but they did make the most of Earth Day last week by seizing control of a farm and transforming it into a farm. Zombie reports:
Before the Occupation, the Gill Tract was an agricultural research farm where twenty-somethings getting their PhDs would work the fields to grow crops, as they researched biology or how to raise better, healthier plants. But now, after this incredible revolution by Occupy, the Gill Tract has been utterly transformed into a farm where twenty-somethings work the fields to grow crops. The only difference is that before, the farm served a scientific function to improve society, and was managed by experts and hard-working students doing meaningful research; but now, its run by a bunch of smug amateurs and dropouts who plant store-bought seedlings in the middle of what once was a controlled research environment. Meet the new farm same as the old farm, except worse.

They grow crops in Berzerkley? Are they the eatin kind or smokin kind?
Oh I love it!!!!
Hey I am shocked too! The eatin’ kind!
I really feel sorry for these kids working on their PHD’s. That is hard work only to have these know-it-all’s come in and ruin everything. This blows, I mean really blows.
Well you can’t be a commie without agrarian reform. Next come the famines one would expect when people that know nothing about agriculture take over a farm.
Where is the Gill tract? I cannot picture any open space in Berkeley, other than People’s Park.
I remember the Berkeley Farms Dairy and their ads which asked, “Farms? In Berkeley?” Their processing plant was actually in Emoryville.
aer you sure this isn’t an episode of “South Park”?
are you sure this isn’t an episode of “South Park”?
Rest assured the Occucommies will be about as productive as Joe Stalin’s recruits for his collective farms in the 1930s. Stalin seized productive private farms, executed the owners and made them “collective farms. He then sent his Communist true-believers to run the collectives and staffed them with peasants and other non-farm people that he found laying around in the cities.
The “to each according to his needs and from each according to his ability” philosophy soon reduced productivity to zero as people who were willing to work stopped working when they saw that slackers got the same benefits as everyone else. This failed system resulted in a famine that starved tens of millions of Russians to death.
Well, the reason I can’t think of any open space in Berkeley is because the Gill Tract is actually in Albany — down by the University Married Student Housing. Are those ramshackle old buildings still standing? They were ready to fall down in 1960.
Oh I love it!!!!

- Malodorus Marxists.
- Parasitic Pinkos......
Kinda rings a familiar, poignant note doesn’t it?
“We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.” —Adolf Hitler
(Speech of May 1, 1927. Quoted by Toland, 1976, p. 306)
Life imitating art:
Hey, these guys are trying not to repeat the mistakes of Pol Pot! You know where he forced all the city dwellers to work in the fields, whereby food production dropped so much the country was starving within months! Pol Pot had kids driving/leading the elders in the fields and these kids knew NOTHING about farming, so they FAILED - MISERABLY!
These Berkeley students want to be agriculturally knowledgeable when they are asked to be “useful idiots!”
" We demand an agrarian reform in accordance with our national requirements, and the enactment of a law to expropriate the owners without compensation of any land needed for the common purpose."
Idiots will be idiots, I suppose.
The Occubums then went to the residential neighbors and asked to use their water. Last I heard, they weren't gettin' any.
Maryland has a terrific University of Maryland agriculture farm. In fact two of them I know about.
With O’Malley as Governor and Pelosi’s enema bag carrier Steny Hoyer as 2nd. in Line at the House. I guess it is the next farm to go.
Did anyone see how much of a fight was put up by the PhD candidate EcoCommies attending school there?
I bet they are on the side of the OccuCommies anyway
"I saw a country lad no more than twenty years of age in a soldier's uniform. I realized he was not a trained doctor at all but had been given the job because Mao Zedong had said, "We must learn swimming from swimming," when referring to appointing unskilled workers who were politically reliable to do technical jobs. The young man was simply carrying out Mao's order to "learn to be a doctor by being one."
"There were many reports in the newspaper of cases where untrained hospital coolies were said to have performed operations successfully after mastering Mao's quotations."

These folks are what I would characterize as fantasist bullies.I would like to round them up and put them on a plane to Zimbabwe to fantasy farm. That is until a bigger bully equally as ignorant in the ways of farming comes along and introduces them to the reality of what it means to be thrown off a farm but in this case with some serious bruising.
“Farms in Berkeley?”
Sorry, I lived in the East Bay in the 60s.
Now they want to fail at farming...
Where is Shane when you need him?
tahnks for the clip.I love Idiocracy. It has a clip to pretty much counter every liberal argument. You can believe me because I have my law degree from Costco Law School situated between the pallets of toilet paper and diet soda .
