Do Not Taunt Indestructible Survival Seed Bank

Tangentially related to gotham_bound's reflection on the news, I get a ridiculous amount of news from sources on the Christian Right. Sometimes it's so I can point and laugh, but there are many times that they catch interesting stories that I wouldn't have seen otherwise. But this is one of the point and laugh times. I actually clicked a banner ad today, to learn about Survival Seeds:

You don’t have to be an Old Testament prophet to see what’s going on all around us. A belligerent lower class demanding handouts. A rapidly diminishing middle class crippled by police state bureaucracy. An aloof, ruling elite that has introduced us to an emerging totalitarianism which seeks control over every aspect of our lives.

So you should bury a bucket of seeds in your yard, seeds "Grown in remote plots, far from the prying eyes of the big hybrid seed companies." "Remember, non-hybrid seeds can be grown practically anywhere and have the ability to assimilate mineral and trace elements from the soil that man made plants just don’t seem to have."

But my favorite is "Indestructible Survival Seed Bank Can Be Buried To Avoid Confiscation."

Yeah, when the shit hits the fan and Uncle Sam's jackbooted thugs are coming for your eleven year old chard seeds to redistribute them to poor people the "belligerent lower class", they'll just be out of luck, because you're smarter than them. You planned ahead. You buried your bucket of seeds.

Oh, and friends like notjenschiz send me news stories that they think I might appreciate, like this one. Sort of like that joke about "I sent two boats and a helicopter."
