buying the farm or food pyramid

In ongoing, serial efforts to install individuals who are inexperienced and antithetical to what department is charged with protecting, Dear Leader’s pick in conservative radio talk-show host, failed state senator and noted maize-maze Minotaur, Sam Clovis, as the “chief scientist” for the US Department of Agriculture is no exception.
Despite vehement criticisms of Dear Leader during the campaign for not being a model Christian and praising Rick Perry for calling Dear Leader a “cancer on conservativism,” Clovis seems to have come around and will be able to his wilful ignorance and incuriousness to the field and to the dinner table. Nutrition policy and food security are fundamental in any society and to steer away from health and sustainability in the name of profit has never ended well.
