Let Them Eat...What?

Just to add to the full plate of world wide terror and apocalypse pending motifs, there is now word of food rationing on both the East and West coasts of the States. People are being limited on how much rice they can buy. The article also mentioned how rice exports have been limited from international outputs and reports of stockpiling as well. Hysteria and panic haven't set in yet, so I don't think McDonald's nation is going to fret just yet. Besides, the government would tell us if something was wrong, right?

This doesn't bode well, but guess it was only a matter of time. You can't keep foreclosing on family farms and turning all the crop land into airports and suburbs and expect to eat. Not unless one can survive on Yellow Dye Number 5...

You forgot government subsidies to keep farmers from planting and harvesting certain crops. I think everyone should grow a little food. Back to the family farm - not. Food bars and supplements might help us cut down on the blubber. :o)

I heard about this food rationing stuff while listening to the radio on my drive to work this morning. Ay-yi-yi.

Gotta get that garden started, I guess. If anything, it'll mean less yard to mow!
