    Seed sabotage

    Received a warning from my local ag agency about unsolicited chinese seeds being sent to people. New sabotage from china?

    Im familiar with the import and illegal product dumping China used to offload dangerous hood to America. My opinion is that this is to get customs and import to look for AG items and miss the actual import illegality.

    seeds are red herring. Watch for other more problematic imports.

    if you ask me, we stop China.
    full stop.
    no caveats.

    I planted the Chinese seeds I received. They sprouted, and grew, REALLY FAST. Beautiful plants, but the darn things KEEP BITING ME.

    Planet Money did a podcast on China and seeds. Pretty interesting.

    Along those same lines, I remember reading a short story about an Earth expedition to a foreign planet. They found sentient life, living in a near utopian society that was primarily agrarian. They seemed to be completely defenseless, but there was evidence that other advanced civilizations had visited the planet because the life forms there had some technology that they didn't know how to use.

    But, they invited the Terrans to inhabit the area. They showed how to plant crops for food. But, when those crops started getting attacked by pests, they showed the earthlings which species would would eliminate the pests. But, when those species started causing problems, the natives showed the Terrans which other species to bring in.

    Eventually, the necessary species was the one that attacked the humans. So the humans left, quickly, leaving much of their technology....

    At least that's how I remember the story going.

    Here is a news release from Purdue including where to send any seeds:

    Unsolicited seeds could wreak havoc on agriculture, environment, state officials warn

    Biden and Clinton families given millions by Russians and Trump is the one colluding?!?
