yes, production has increased, but with the burning of food, so has
consumption. last i read in the financial press, consumption has
outstripped even increased production and grain reserves [the buffer
between consumption and production which is supposed to see us through
bad crop years] are at post-ww2 lows. low reserves increase price
volatility [good for traders], but it's absolute freakin' insanity
no kidding. adm and cargill [one of the biggest scariest companies
you've never heard of] completely dominate - you'd think that with their
enormous buying power, companies like kelloggs and [former] hostess
would have some kind of say in the grain markets, but the reality is
that they have to kiss adm's/cargill's rear end. and make out they like it.
ethanol, that ridiculous political frankenstein, is grain market
manipulation on steroids, all with taxpayer subsidy and lobbying
corruption thrown in. the supremes kiss a$$ when it comes to business
interests. and that's just a sorry fact.
and more famously:
My guess would be Alzheimer or senility. This idea of lifetime appointment
virtually guarantees that some of them are serving in diminished mental
capacity, with their staff making up the deficit.
There should be a manadatory retirement age for government employees,
just like for private business leaders.
I'd have no problem extending it to Congress, but at least they stand
for reelection so in theory the people have a say.
I would certainly extend it to SCOTUS - 20 years or age 72 whichever
They get nutty after a while even if it's not exactly senility.
