      I believe investment groups that are part of bill gates should be transparent as to who is a part of that group. If any member is not an American citizen they should be barred from being allowed to own farm or any land for that matter in the states. Also groups invested money though Bill gates should be considered a corporation and should be taxed accordingly.

      I always wondered if a property tax structure to steer ownership would be a good idea. Sort of a live on & earn from land, zero tax... think family farm. Next tier your basic homeowner, little to no tax. then owners of properties that live local, like the farmer that lives in town to keep wife happy but gets income from working the land. Then on to non participating, then non state resident, even up to non american. Also taking land from use add a layer for that.

      At the end of the article it says they could face a $100,000 fine. Wow I bet a number like that will have Bill shaking in his italian loafers. I'm far from a mathematician but say I have a million dollars. That would be like fining me $7.69?!?!

      As a general rule I don’t believe in government dictating who can own land or what they do with it. Of course there is exceptions for use as to not degrade the neighbors. And I’m really not a fan of the corporate farming laws in ND. If Green Giant wants to buy 1000 acres of land to grow their own sweet corn on why shouldn’t they be able to do it. The problem is that nowadays you have some very wealthy people and corporations that are very nefarious. So it’s making me take a step back and rethink my personal feelings towards some of this shit.

      People can always seem to remember the fake believe stories that conspiracy theorists say about a person but never seem to recall any of the good things. Bill Gates did a good thing when he built the Microsoft corp. in Fargo and Doug Burgum was working for Bill Gates at the time.

      Bill Gates bought it on purpose so that he and his bud Burgum can take the anti corporate farming law to court.. all land will soon be owned by the rich and big corporations. Enjoy it while it lasts.

      Will corporate farming be a bad thing, I have read up on some of these anti corporate farming laws but what I fail to see what would be different now as it relates to bill gates buying not just farmland in North Dakota but also a business?

      Well, that would've cost about 7.5 Billion, and he only spent ~13.5 million, so, it probably wasn't 1.2 Million acres. If you could buy land for $11/Ac I'd be in for a BUNCH.

      It sounds like the ND purchase was 2100 acres or just shy of $ 6,500.00/acre

      It is not that I value my property over another's life it is that whoever tries to take it values my property over their own life.

      I was surprised that the state gave away 25% of the land with mineral rights included back in the 1800s to the railroad companies . If I'm not mistaken that's how Continental Resources oil Co. got so big.
