Ethanol Eating Up U.S. Corn Exports
Ohio Farmer, by Staff

Foreign nations that previously relied on the U.S. for corn are growing more of their own or buying from other producing countries, says Philip Abbott, a Purdue University economist. He predicted the trend will continue even if market conditions improve and U.S. corn production increases. "The U.S. has historically been a very important part of the international corn market," Abbott says. "Prior to the 2007-08 food crisis and spike in commodity prices,

As we continue to burn up our food supplies, the world goes on without us. No exports, no new money exchange, no balancing of trades.
This ethanol idiocy does not help us become energy independent, it uses up valuable resources, and restricts the production of food. As we continue to see our food prices soar, one of the reasons will be this ethanol debacle. Remember that corn is not only used for direct food for humans but the number one food for animal feed. Have you noticed the price of steaks these days? Blame some of it on ethanol.

Not to mention the 3.5 gallons of diesel and nat. gas required to complete the distillation and additional transportation of each gallon of perfectly good and drinkable ethanol which we then waste as fuel.

Stop all farm subsidies.

Crop insurance can be had privately.

Ethanol in my car causes more damage than in my blender.

Went to the store yesterday for a can of corn needed in a recipe. The price of canned corn is twice the price of green beans or peas. Ethanol sure is a wonderful thing. @@

More Big Government distortion of free market prices of a commodity. Attempting to do good, they do evil instead.

But you don´t understand!
Ethanol is a grand utopian scheme.
IMPORT 100 barrels of diesel fuel. Use to make the equivalent of 90 barrels of gasoline. Net effect on oil dependence: negative.
Net influence on "public opiinion": profound.

Net profit to agribusiness: priceless!

And the congresscritters get their campaign contributions from agribusiness.

And ethanol contributes to global warming: the change from soybeans to corn in the US opens the market for soybeans grown in South America, where they cut down rain forests, destabilizing the global climate.

It is a win-win all the way around.

Price of ground beef had increased at least 100%, over the last 5 years. Price of silver increased 235% over the last 5 years. Home prices are being artificially boosted by various means (talk to a realtor).

The object it seems, is to increase the cost of living.

Then ethanol mandates were technical decisions made by a congress consisting mainly of a bunch of lawyers with ZERO technical knowledge. Every time that is tried, it fails. Look it up, from light bulbs to flush toilets and on and on...

Removing Food Assistance
Won´t Pass Farm Bill
Ohio Farmer, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Srhea- 7/4/2013 7:53:09 AM     Post Reply
Defeat of the farm bill has raised the cry for separating crop programs and food assistance into separate bills, but that will take away the measure´s broad based support. A new farm bill likely won´t pass until legislators are able to cobble together a majority coalition in a politically divided Congress, which in turn reflects a divided country and a divided farm bill constituency,

Painting Depicts Obama
as Crucified Christ
Fox News, by Todd Starnes    Original Article
Posted By: Srhea- 11/27/2012 10:08:50 AM     Post Reply
A painting that features President Obama posed as Jesus Christ crucified on is on display at a community college art gallery in Boston. The painting by Michael D’Antuono is part of a larger exhibit called “Artists on the Stump – the Road to the White House 2012.” It’s on display at the Bunker Hill Community College Art Gallery until Dec. 15th. The painting is called “Truth” – and shows the president with his arms outstretched. A crown of thorns rests on his head.
It was originally supposed to debut nearly four years ago at New York City’s Union Square. But that event was cancelled due to public outrage.

Has Rush Limbaugh Finally

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Why is US Senator Harry

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

White babies just 15 months old show racial
bias when picking playmates, study found

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
