Re: Corn and soy price and the powers that be

USDA has a special job. Keep the price of food down while keeping farmers in business. If our lazy nation becomes dependent on another for food, we're done. But while trying to get everyone in to Walmart to spend their cash on crap, Susie homemaker can't spend 50% of her allowance on food alone. So they throw numbers and scare tactics out there. Keeps things in check for a bit, they just hope the American consumer doesn't catch wind of this and all hell breaks loose. Maybe I'm an anti government fanatic, but I prefer simply "anti government" Smiley Wink

That and the gov getting out of crop ins. assistance would hurt some people big time.

I'd wish I'd sold my farm when prices were higher.
