"As we’ve all heard, this summer’s hot weather and drought conditions have hammered the corn crop. The Journal reports this morning that leading meat packer Smithfield Foods is importing corn from Brazil. (The story suggests that Tyson Foods is probably doing the same thing.) An American food company needing to import corn to meet its needs is like Saudi Arabia needing to import oil. Of course, maybe if we weren’t diverting roughly half our corn crop to make ethanol we wouldn’t see shortages and high prices, even with a drought."

All the while much of our oil remains untapped, untouched and unused due to nothing but politics and regulation, mean while Obama has diverted billions to Brazil to help Soros and Petrogras to pump our oil out of the gulf while keeping much of it off limits to us, 4 more years of Obama is suicide.

Correct!


The drought does not have any thing to do with oil!

The feed I use went up today from 22.00 per 100# to 32.00 per 100#.
I'll have to butcher most of the sheep and goats, the pasture burned up and they said the next feed may go up another 50%.
