Agriculture is a major industry in the United States, which is a net exporter of food.[1] As of the 2007 census of agriculture, there were 2.2 million farms, covering an area of 922 million acres (3,730,000 km2), an average of 418 acres (169 hectares) per farm.[2] Although agricultural activity occurs in every state in the union, it is particularly concentrated in the Great Plains, a vast expanse of flat, arable land in the center of the nation in the region around the Great Lakes known as the Corn Belt.

Tonnes of United States agriculture production, as reported by the FAO in 2003 and 2013 (ranked roughly in order of value):[6]

Millions of Tonnes in 2003 2013
Corn 256.0 354.0
Cattle meat 12.0 11.7
Cow's milk, whole, fresh 77.0 91.0
Chicken meat 14.7 17.4
Soybeans 67.0 89.0
Pig meat 9.1 10.5
Wheat 64.0 58.0
Cotton lint 4.0 2.8
Hen eggs 5.2 5.6
Turkey meat 2.5 2.6
Tomatoes 11.4 12.6
Potatoes 20.8 19.8
Grapes 5.9 7.7
Oranges 10.4 7.6
Rice, paddy 9.1 8.6
Apples 3.9 4.1
Sorghum 10.4 9.9
Lettuce 4.7 3.6
Cottonseed 6.0 5.6
Sugar beets 30.7 29.8

The only other crops to ever appear in the top 20 in the last 40 years were, commonly: tobacco, barley, and oats, and, rarely: peanuts, almonds, and sunflower seeds. Alfalfa and hay would both be in the top ten in 2003 if they were tracked by FAO.

The tonne, commonly referred to as the metric ton in the United States, is a non-SI metric unit of mass equal to 1,000 kilograms; or one megagram (Mg); it is equivalent to approximately 2,204.6 pounds,

In 2012, there were 3.2 million farmers,[19] ranchers and other agricultural managers and an estimated 757,900 agricultural workers were legally employed in the US.

Daniel 11
"1Also I in the first year of Darius the Mede, even I, stood to confirm and to strengthen him. 2And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia. 3And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will. 4And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.


5And the king of the south shall be strong, and one of his princes; and he shall be strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion shall be a great dominion. 6And in the end of years they shall join themselves together; for the king's daughter of the south shall come to the king of the north to make an agreement: but she shall not retain the power of the arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm: but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and he that begat her, and he that strengthened her in these times. 7But out of a branch of her roots shall one stand up in his estate, which shall come with an army, and shall enter into the fortress of the king of the north, and shall deal against them, and shall prevail: 8And shall also carry captives into Egypt their gods, with their princes, and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold; and he shall continue more years than the king of the north. 9So the king of the south shall come into his kingdom, and shall return into his own land."


Daniel 12
"1And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. 2And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. 4But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased."

2000-2018 is 18 years. Constitution keeping for each Country is being 'Lawful'.



As a result of the ongoing Syrian civil war, there are currently two governments claiming to be the de jure government of Syria,
using different flags to represent the state.[1] The incumbent government, led by Bashar al-Assad and the Ba'ath Party, is using the red-white-black United Arab Republic flag in use since 1980; while the Syrian Interim Government, led by the Syrian National Coalition – seeking to overthrow the Assad government – readopted the green-white-black Independence flag in 2012.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Syria



According to articles 84 and 85 of the Syrian constitution, the candidate for the office of President of the Republic must:

Acquire the support of at least 35 members of the People's Assembly
Be above the age of 34 (as of a new law)
Have lived continuously in Syria for 10 years before the election
Be Syrian by birth, of parents who are Syrians by birth
Not be married to a non-Syrian spouse


According to article 88 of the Syrian constitution, the president runs for a 7-year term after he is elected, and can only be reelected for one more term.

You leave me uninspired, who ever you are....

2 things are part of inspiration.

1: keeping the 'good'
2: getting to the 'good'


Which one could you use 'more' of?



Losing the 'good' is never an enjoyable experience. To get 'reinspired', think of things which might have inspired you in the past??? And add and keep the 'good'?


Sorry if you 'lost' your 'good' things for whatever reason. How would I have known, right? Besides. How would you know if I also didn't lost my 'good' things??


For some, getting through life is as easy as to anyone else. They just play by the 'rules', look 'pretty', smell 'pretty', be 'pretty' and they land the success. For others though, the 'being' pretty part does not come as easily.


I learned at a relatively young age, although older than others, that the streets is not about being 'pretty'. Fortunately the 'advantage' I had/have over the others is my School education to which I can use as somewhat of a crutch while trying to be 'pretty'.


Days are disappearing where the 'qualified' is/are being replaced with the socially adept. But I wonder, to whom does this benefit?

There are always the 'minorities' in every 'group' and 'sector' and 'sub group' that needs to have some kind of 'defense' to their supposedly 'low self esteem', it seems.

They NEVER had a low self esteem until they were told and repetitively told that they were 'different', right? And if they should fall into a self restricting 'depression' and when their parents do not understand why they would be overly enwrapped with such feelings, 'Society' is there to rush in and 'save the day', right?


China is beginning to go through this as we speak.. The new AIDS patients are being 'saved' by those in those Society(ies) that say they can 'care' more than the very Parents that bore them. All this is doing is showing how 'parents' are more lacking than themselves, although, they probably have no children of their own to raise and teach and take care of.


Are they trying to say that the 'world' should be a better place? Are they making the 'world' a better place by doing it 'this' way?

Why should there be any fear of speaking truth or fear of hurting 'feelings'? Who is there who is doing these things without having children of their own but who has authority enough to enforce and change family and land laws?

Whatever or whoever it could be, it's called 'privilege', it seems.


I do hope that Mr. Bashar al-Assad DOES remember his upbringing and his life living with his family. And i do hope and it would be nice if he did so so that he could impart some of those 'family' well being blessings to others, right? Or does he and many other 'leaders' automatically assume that all others in their age groups were raised and privileged the same as themselves?


He was on his way to becoming an 'eye' specialist while going to school in England. Not all others in his peer group are as opportuned. The 'blessings', more to say, right?

And again it falls back into the circle... The circle which compromises of several key players. England, The U.S, Canada, Europe, parts of Asia,.... The 'well to do' Countries and the 'lifestyles' they have 'available' and the 'lifestyles' they make available. Not every Country is as England or the U.S or Canada or Europe or parts of Asia, though.


Many prefer 'family' over monies. And many will keep 'family' over monies although many will 'sell' for monies.


Did you ever wonder why during the Great Depression many chose 'suicide' as the answer rather than 'homelessness'?


Was 'monies' that ironcladed upon the human life?

And is this what many Countries are trying to be 'developed' into?


What is the 'alluring' part of such lifestyles? Maybe just the opportunity to be able to live such a lifestyle many can only 'see' on T.V.

And what occurs when and if a person meets such a 'person', and who offers no 'human kindness' but are as 'brutes' and high nosed humans?

Either back down or a struggle to maintain or a fight to the top.

So not to be rude or 'downtrodding', but to where or to what or to which is 'inspiring'?


Learning to deal with the 'rules' of 'pretty' in a world of darkness?


What is the population of the Country of Y'srael? 200 million? 320 million? Half the population of the U.S?


It's more than the population of Virginia and less the population of New Jersey.



Virginia 8,470,020
New Jersey 9,005,644


Imagine having 'bombs' exploding in your front yard if you lived in New Jersey or Virginia... And by an entire Country or Countries to boot.

There was once a person who was very merciful. Through 'mercy' he thought that 'time' would help heal and remedy. But when the person that was in need of this 'healing and remedy' passed on, he was worse off spiritually than when he had first begun.

Tell me. what will the Head Chief Physician do? He will show the better way of showing 'mercy'.

He will know that to keep some 'good' is better, in the hereafter, than to enter into the hereafter with no forgiveness.


But here came another person who stood in the 'breach'.

'No', he/she said. 'It is wrong of you to show such non Mercy by thinking such thoughts. Give him time so that he can heal and remedy'.


He/she continued on with blame. 'How could you call yourself a Physician when you can't even help a person'?

The Physician tried to reason with him/her but his/her heart was bent on not hearing him. He/she kept persisting that it be done his/her way. And for a while, the Physicians did. But in the meantime, because of his/her requests, the Physicians could not spend too much time on their other patients. Some needed other persons to tend. Some were put on support machines of sorts. All in all, all the other patients fared well when it was over but what of the time and expenditures lost?

The Finance Department came in and began questioning the work. The Physicians needed to give an explanation why they did as they chose to do in their 'Good Judgement'.


Proverbs 22:1 "A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold."



Upon the closing of the 'hearings', the members of the Hospital team(s) were dispersed. Some of the other members thought to themselves, 'How am I able to work under that Chief Head Physician knowing what I just heard'?


And so.... what to make? Or should we not try to 'make' but try to live peaceably as if a 'peaceable' gathering to petition for the Government to redress grievances?



The 'patients' upon examination were all well and were discharged and lived healthfully. The others, the non patients, which remained, needed to reexamine what they heard. The other physicians and Hospital members also heard. But since the patients were all well and discharged properly, the only 'loss' that was incurred was monetary. And to this, the file was closed. It was filed under the 'N' section of the Cabinet.
