    Default New Glen Beck advertiser! He sells Crisis Seeds!

    Glenn Beck's dwindling list of advertisers got a healthy boost Monday from Survival Seed Bank, a new advertiser peddling seeds to grow "crisis gardens."

    Survival Seed Bank markets itself as sort of food insurance should the American government and market collapse. In the Survival Seed Bank commercial that aired Monday, a pitchman sits before a TV showing scenes of breadlines and soup kitchens from the Great Depression and asks "Are you worried about the economy? Are you ever worried that the politicians and the bankers are going to bring the whole thing crashing down? If so, pay close attention, because in an economic meltdown, non-hybrid seeds could become more valuable than even silver and gold. Afterall, securing a source of food for your family is the single most important thing you can do."

    The Survival Seed Bank pitchman reminds viewers at the end of the commercial to "prepare today" because "in an economic crisis, non-hybrid seeds are the ultimate barter item."http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/08/survival-seed-bank-uses-a_n_490955.html
    And here I was thinking the repugs supported GM foods. Go figure.

    Just wow! Here is a snippet from the seed banks website.

    Full Acre Crisis Garden!

    New "Survival Seed Bank" Produces Thousands Of Pounds Of Nutrient-Dense Food For Pennies Per Pound... Enough To Feed Friends And Family Forever!


    Now you can grow all the survival food you will ever need anywhere in the country with a kit that contains a special seed bank of hard to find, open pollinated... super seeds, grown by small, fiercely independent farmers.

    Let's face it. If the stories coming out on the world's food supply are even half right, we've got real problems and they aren't going to go away quickly. Here are a couple stories that I ran across recently:


    • WorldNet Daily cites strong evidence that some government agencies are stockpiling huge amounts of canned food.
    • Jim Randas, former U.S. Intelligence officer, appeared on ABC telling Americans to start stockpiling food.
    • Grocery store prices are rising faster than any time in U.S. history.
    • Worldwide grain stocks are dropping precipitously as bio-fuels consume inventories... and on and on and on.
    You don't have to be an Old Testament prophet to see what's going on all around us. A belligerent lower class demanding handouts. A rapidly diminishing middle class crippled by police state bureaucracy. An aloof, ruling elite that has introduced us to an emerging totalitarianism which seeks control over every aspect of our lives.


    As the meltdown progresses, one of the first things to be affected will be our nation's food supply. Expect soaring prices along with moderate to severe shortages by spring. If you don't have the ability to grow your own food next year, your life may be in danger. Supply lines for food distribution in this country are about three days, meaning a dependence on "just in time" distribution systems, which will leave store shelves empty in the event of even the smallest crisis.

    Are You Ready To Take Control Of Your Own Food Supply?

    Could you and your family get off the grid and survive in a panic? Do you have enough seeds to plant a survival garden and feed your family? Do you have the right kind of seeds to plant? If you're answering no to these questions, you need to stop wherever you are and ask yourself... "What would I do if the grocery stores closed?" The answer sadly is that you'd probably go hungry.
    Here's What You Should Do Right Now...

    First, you need to have the peace of mind knowing that if things were to get scary, that you and your family could still eat.

    He's not selling seeds so much as he's selling mistrust in the government and fear. He knows his market well.

    Why would your seeds be confiscated? Because they only want us eating genetically modified food? Or hamburgers?
    This is like the stuff my crazy rapture ridden co-worker yammers on about.

    Just when Palin scores with "God wrote on his hand too", Beck strikes back with Crisis Seeds.

    Who will win the battle of teh Crazy?


    WorldNet Daily cites strong evidence that some government agencies are stockpiling huge amounts of canned food.
    I knew World Nut Daily would have some role in this.
