Like I told people when gas prices shot above $3 a gallon after Hurricane Katrina- look for $2.50-$2.75 per gallon to be the new "plateau." I get absolutely NO satisfaction in being right. We'll be paying $3-4 a gallon probably within a year.
Now a gallon of milk is even more expensive- around $4 a gallon. Wheat-based products are rising in response to more farmers producing corn- that in turn being used for this non-miracle panacea additive Ethanol in fuel. Already the Italians threaten to strike buying their national staple: pasta.
Not to worry though- Americans won't strike against anything. Do f-ing sheep even know HOW to strike??? I guess people learned too well from Kent State in 1970- if they protest- gun the bastards down.
And support your local war.
There is a serious cognitive disconnect to reality going on in this nation- and it's not improving....
