you know if/when China owns dorags cuntry the Spud will be what the Americas are remembered forHey, they were tasty.
On the subject of potatoes and the Irish, here is an "interesting" theory:
...You wonder why "couch potato" refers to an immobilized person who has lost his will? Who is yinned out, who lies passively watching flickering images often eating chips for hours on end, unable to move? All this because the potato is known to be the most yin vegetable that exists, along with the EGGPLANT? Those two. MACROBIOTICS warn us about the nightshade family! Farmers knew if cows ate them, they died psychotic!
Need more proof? Think about it. Any country that uses a tater as a primary food is quickly immobilized, colonized and then on some extinction list.
When the spud left the hands of the INCAS, (who were made extinct by the arrival of Spanish conquistadors,) the TUBER travelled to prosperous ENGLAND at the height of her wealth as a trading nation, also to SPAIN, where it quickly became a primary food. The Spanish then went into two psychotic centuries killing millions of their own people with the horrific inquisition and that continued until NAPOLEON invaded spain in 1802...and stopped it.
Meanwhile the potato had arrived in IRELAND. THE BRITs thought the SPUD to be the perfect non nutrition starchy slave food for their serfs, as Small amts of land could create tons of a food that banished scurvey (slight amts vit c) and with milk or butter (it had no aminos on its own,( provided a 'complete' nutriion. At least the workers didn't die on them. The starving landless peasants ate nothing else and grew weaker and more yin, accepting British Rule, boot and chains.
THE POTATO caused a yin condition and yet it was protection during times of yang invasion. HOW SO? An amazing feature of the potato is that no soldier, no pirate, no plunderer would steal your spuds. They'd take your pigs, chickens, wheat, wine, but invaders couldnt see stuff growing underground and wouldn't get on their knees and dig in the mud with their hands so while every other kind of food was stolen by pirates, invaders or colonist soldiers nobody would steal the Irish peon's potato planting. SO a GREAT FOOD FOR PEOPLE BEING ABUSED WHO ARE ABUSED BECAUSE THEY EAT THIS GREAT FOOD.
This YIN food makes you powerless. Stuporous, happy and forgetful. Proof: The Irish became the slaves of the ENGLISH, and that invasion of EIRE occurred during CROMWELL's time, right after the arrival of the potato so instead of honest trade and piracy the English began colonizing Eire and enslaving the micks. A less honoest way of making a living.
The only thing an irishman could think to do when invaded by English or the other pirates ---when all these strangers were milling around with guns was loony but it worked. They turned the highway signs to point in the wrong way.
There are many other countries where the potato became over used, it being poor people food. It was serf food in RUSSIA. The serfs were enslaved by the landowners for generations.One rich family had 800 slaves.
So that brings the tale around to America. It is a well known fact that americans eat 30 pounds of french fries per person in a single. year. Imagine a big bag of sugar times six. but that's only weight wise. French fries are light so the bulk would be ten times that in size to get 30 lbs. Imagine filing the inside of a VW bug with french fries to the top of the interior roof, fitting in also the four people who'd be eating those French fries. That's AMERICA FOR YOU.
To prove the theorem? Who has colonized America? THE worst guys on the planet and the most subtle, the IMF and the FED! Every president since Woodrow Wilson, has been robot-controlled by the IMF AND FED. They were exploited, turned into total hand puppets, colonized -- by the banksters. Wilson was persuaded to sign the FEDERAL RESERVE into being! He apologized just before his death. The only exception was JFK who fought them, and even proposed a bill to eliminate the FED. Him they shot. He was Irish, ate potatoes and was easy to dispatch. What president in his right mind goes to DALLAS with a TEXAN as VP? His eyes were extremely yin by the way, (see below) What Macrobiotics call SANPAKU, Three-whites. Meaning white showing under the IRIS. Iris high in the eye facing up. CHIPS and SPUDS did it to him.
