North Dakota farmland isn't exactly the best land in the country.
Ted Turner also owns a lot of land in several states.
Canada is the biggest foreign invester of American soil.


Life ain't supposed to be easy.

I guess that's like believing you shouldn't buy a boat or get your teeth cleaned if you're not a fisherman or a dentist.

Jealousy is yet another destructive force in this country.

Good for Gates. He worked hard and built up great wealth that he can spend or give away however he chooses.

If the socialist Tman complainers don't like it, they can earn some money and buy their own farmland.

270,000 acres of US crop land for the purpose of developing new plant strains for Africa??? Philanthropy is often used to extend oneís vision after they are gone.

Bill Gates is buying farmland to use to find better ways to feed people, so they don't starve. Bill Gates spends billions on vaccines to keep people from dying from diseases. Bill Gates has literally saved the lives of and made their lives better for millions of people. That's heroic not evil.

If you want a healthy population you donít preserve the old while killing the replacements. Nature and war will always do a better job than some old guy like me. Lol

Not the same thing at all. More like not being a fisherman and buying more boats than anyone else in America.

I have to wonder why it matters, and how it affects you or me, if he owns zero boats or hundreds of boats ? It makes no difference in my life

I heard Gates et al are going to buy up most of it and turn it over to BLM(the movement not the beureau)and others(AIM etc) for re distribution to the people in the spirit of truth and reconciliation(reparations).

Even better. It will be back on the market one growing season after Gates passes.

It doesn't even matter which side of the argument you're on, that's funny either way!

Bill Gates is most definitely not a communist. Look at all the money he spent on protecting intellectual property by getting laws enacted all over the entire world.

Bill Gates gives very slightly more money to Republican candidates than democrat canidates. Politically he is smack dab in the middle.

Bill Gates gives most of his money to keep poor people healthy.

I donít know if he has a dog but itís a well known fact that his wife didnít trust him and his stance on gun control is known. The fact he had a any type of relationship with Epstein is unacceptable. Especially if it involved visits to Epsteinís private residence. Not the kind of man I choose to defend.
