Texas AgriLife Extension economists reported last week that this year’s crop losses in Texas are already estimated at $2.6 billion, and livestock losses are close to $1 billion since November 2008. The U.S. Drought Monitor indicated Texas has the most land in the worst stage of drought in nearly a decade.

U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, demanding to know why the $3 billion in emergency drought relief funding, which was approved and signed into law more than one year ago as part of the 2008 Farm Bill, has yet to be released.

 In some parts of central Texas, half of the cotton, corn and sorghum crops—Texas’s primary exports—have already been wiped out by the drought. Grazing pastures are too dry for livestock, and many Texas ranchers are being forced to sell their cattle because they cannot feed them.

 

Please sign my petition

Up again, will try to sign the petition now. What we need in Texas is another Governor, one who is not a Bilderberg.

We the People Advocates game plan will improve all Democracies. We see the need to bring all good sources of news media in concert to help aid them with sufficient money to continue their role and to give them a place in our plan to continue their work in the awaking of mankind to their proper place of ruler-ship over them selves.

Read to plan and see how easy it will be to fit in. After tell US what your ideas are on how to change delete or improve the idea. We need an accomplished author to come on board soon to help write the book about the HOW TO DO IT. Once done and a best seller here we have plans to publish in all languages. As a textbook for study.
