Bottled water and branded kids

Tuesday, December 20, 2005

Dear Editor,

They haul water from Goodland to Garden City, bottle it, bring it back to sell! I got some plums, (and) I hod mold under the sticker. I got some peaches, (and) I had mold under the sticker. I got a 3-pound sack of apples for $1.68, (with) no sticker, 56 cents a pound. Those with stockers were 78 cents a pound.

I bought 5 pounds of oranges, $2.49 (no stickers), 50 cents a pound. I bought canned beef from Uruguay, another from Brazil! Would it be cheaper to bypass the cheat-off crowd, forget the animal I.D.'s (who can prove which hide the hamburger came from?) Export and import beef at less cost?

Those striving for animal I.D.s and for kids should be told, "and he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark on their right hand, or in their foreheads; and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred three score and six." Rev. 13: 16-18.

Frank Sowers,
