    Seriously, I doubt that it's that much cheaper to farm cacao/cocoa/whatever in Africa.
    But you never know. Apparently American farmers think that bell peppers are worth $1.68 a piece, and watermelons $7.50. I bought an apple the other day that was $1.42.... one dollar and forty two cents for an apple!

    On the bright side, frozen blueberries and frozen blackberries are delicious and cost a fraction of what Publix thinks the fresh ones are worth. I'm not going to pay $4.58 for 20 or 30 blackberries.... the fucking things grow wild. So does asparagus. Are there really people who must have these things and will pay whatever the asking price is?
    WTF? Where the hell do you shop?

    No kidding, I could get a dozen apples for $1.42, it's harvest season in the Midwest.

    In actual dollars, President Obamaís $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. Itís no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obamaís own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    What would chocolate taste like without the occasional toddler falling into the vat while stirring it?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Maybe they'll be WORTH $20 apiece and not like the crap the Mars family churns out.
