The ruling is seen as a decisive win for property-rights outlined under the Fifth Amendment. Specifically, the high court ruled an agricultural board can't seize a portion of a farmer's crop for the purpose of collectively working to stabilize the market. The decision could have far-reaching impact as up to 20 specialty crops have marketing orders under the Agricultural Marketing Agreement Act of 1937, which was part of Roosevelt's New Deal. The Wall Street Journal notes that the Horne decision does not overturn all ag committees and marketing orders, but the "just compensation" clause means paying fair-market value of takings will "disrupt these Soviet-style cartels."

Locavore Nonsense "How the Demise of Agribusiness Would Save us All." That's the nonsensical headline appearing on TheDailyKos.com about a new farmland-mapping research project that suggests 90% of Americans could be fed entirely by food grown or raised within 100 miles of their homes. Not mentioned in the research is how much time Americans would need to spend growing and harvesting their food under a completely local system. Time Americans currently use to keep up with the Kardashians, watch Celebrity Bachelor or fret over their Facebook feed. The study, authored by UC Merced professor Elliott Campbell, is titled "The Large Potential of Local Croplands to Meet Food Demand in the United States Opens a New Window." Steve Sexton concluded four years ago "a locavore-like production system would require an additional 60 million acres of cropland, 2.7 million tons more fertilizer and 50 million pounds more chemicals." Put down your garden tools, it's time for Celebrity Apprentice.

If you give up everything else to just grow food (Freakonimics) Bundy Boondoggle Continues Lest you forget that Cliven Bundy still hasn't paid his grazing fees for over two decades or that the BLM will continue to let the case wind its way through the legal system, a recent incident reminds us southern Nevada remains a magnet for desert defender wannabees. Last week, three BLM contract researchers were monitoring water seeps and springs in the remote Gold Butte area when they were approached by two men who inquired what they were doing. Later that night, six gun shots were fired near their camp. The BLM told the researchers to abandon the area. Bundy denies he or his supporters fired the shots. Another Nevada rancher is at odds with the feds, but the BLM refuses to engage in another confrontation.
