Why Junk Food Is So Cheap


Hello everyone, It’s Butter Bob and I’m out
here in the corn field. And let me tell you something, it’s hot here
in Tennessee today. You know, have you ever wondered why junk
food is so cheap? And good food like, say farm raised eggs,
organic grass fed meat, fruits and vegetables are so expensive? But junk food, made out of corn and wheat,
is so cheap? Well I’ll tell you why. You know, from 1995 to 2012, the Federal Government
of the United States spent 253 billion dollars in subsidies for crops like these, like this
corn right here. And you know what’s going to make you mad? Seventy-five percent of that money, went to
less than four percent of the farmers in this country. In other words, big business getting big tax
dollar subsidies to produce food that is killing us. Making it easier and cheaper to a snack cake,
or some kind of junk food chip, than it is for working people to buy fruits and vegetables,
and good grass fed meat, full fat cheese, and all the other things that would be really
good for them. But they can’t afford it, because this is
taking over. In other words, when they supplement the raising
of these crops, it brings the price down. And you know, everything that you can imagine
is made out of this stuff. That’s why, when you go to the store, you’ll
see it. Corn is in everything. Or things made out of corn, high-fructose
corn syrup, it’s in everything. A sweetener, made out of subsidized corn. Wheat is in everything. Every junk food that you can imagine. But cotton? Believe me, cottonseed oil. It’s in everything, you can see it all over,
in all kinds of products. Soybean oil, in everything. Corn oil, in everything. You see, why are these products so cheap? I’ll tell you why, because we’ve paid for
them twice. We paid for them out of the subsidies, and
we’re paying again at the store. And yeah, it’s cheap, but folks, no matter
whether you’re a Democrat, Republican, Independent, Conservative or Liberal, our politicians,
regardless, have sold us out. They’ve sold us out to the highest bidder. They sold us out to big food. And you know what? Big Food, like Coke and Pepsi, some of these
big producers of junk food, they actually sponsor Nutrition conferences. They, they, there’s money going into these
things. There’s money going into the research places
that study food. And believe me, they’re going to come out
with the outcome that they want. Folks, we have seen, our own self, that if
you’ve been on this diet very long, you’ve seen all the advice they’ve given us, is wrong. This is a problem. And you know what, we, none of us, at least
probably no one that’s in my group, that’s watching this video, has any power to do very
much about this. Believe me, we don’t. But folks, we can’t buy a politician, but
I’ll tell you what we can do. We can use the power of our own billfold,
our own pocketbook, to stop buying this stuff. And when we stop buying it, by the million,
believe me, they’re going to take notice. They’re going to take notice in the halls
of Congress, they’re going to take notice in the Board Rooms of America, that we’re
fed up and we’re on to them. We’re on to their little game. Guys, we have to take our health back into
our own hands. When we share our story on social media, how
we’re getting better, we’re defeating these people. When we stop buying their products, we’re
defeating these people. When we spread the word and we get off of
our drugs, that we have to be on, supposedly to get better. And we’re able to get well and we’re off of
those drugs, we’re spreading the word, and we’re putting the FEAR into the people who
have made us sick and at the same time took our money, bought our politicians, bought
the research organizations to shew science their own way. You know what? Thank goodness for the internet, because we,
together, are changing not just our health, but our very culture. Thank you for listening. Bye, Bye.

    95% of the products made from this corn is GMO. So are the vast majority of soy products. If it’s not organic, you can count on it being GMO.

    Nearly all grain farmers get subsidy. Many are small operations. Of course the larger farms get more of the money. Subsidy is to keep land out of production to keep prices up. 45% of corn crop goes into ethanol. If prices were free market grain prices would plummet. Small farmers would go out of business. Good or bad?

    President "Tricky Dick" Nixon is responsible for corn being subsidized.

    In Ontario Canada they raid farms and the farmers are either jailed or fined or both for selling raw milk and raw butter,it is illegal in Canada to sell,its so disgusting !So many of us want it and sadly cannot get it.Honestly what has this world come too.

    Getting the truth out has these businesses running scared; but getting the truth out will get you censored, de-platformed–facebook, twitter and even youtube are notorious for doing this. We've got to fight back against these frauds–the politicians are the enemy of the people, they get rich while we get poor and sick.

    when you have pool with huge amount of water filling in you have to make the way to dump the excess . The more immigrants and more refugees the more citizens have to be dumped. They how to stress people out and to make them starve yet feel full and subsidized and treated with well fare. They make money with tax payers and ake money with war machine exports and make money from selling a land they have stolen . Then recycling the owners and reselling them . Building an inchohesive society with no family bond is their aim so that all inheritences may be stolen after their death.

    I stopped working for a military industry, many years ago, & went into food production. My job just kinda led me to that direction. I work in Battle Creek, Michigan. I'm a couple years out to retirement now, and now I feel like I did when I worked at a facility that produced parts for attack drones.
    My money comes from industrial food. My pension, is tied up there.
    You're right, I'm sure, about being powerless to stop this. I'm only a contractor's employee. If I were to get out of line, my butt would be kicked so hard. I used to do a lot of work ar POST. It was really nice to go get breakfast there. They had an omelet bar! Bacon & other real food. I guess they didn't want us eating thier poison.

    This video is spot on. Butter Bob has really told the truth here about the problems we have all been facing. Junk food IS cheap and those of us on limited budgets have been conned into filling our stomachs with garbage just because it is cheaper. Big business does not care. Thankyou so much for making this video Mr. Briggs and for your inspiration.

    Butter Bob, we need you to come back and make more videos. There is new research coming out all the time and we need your help making sense of it. You explain concepts so simply. You still have plenty of important things to say. We need your motivational speeches.
