Americans hoard food as industry seeks regs
Farmers and food executives appealed fruitlessly to federal officials yesterday for regulatory steps to limit speculative buying that is helping to drive food prices higher. Meanwhile, some Americans are stocking up on staples such as rice, flour and oil in anticipation of high prices and shortages spreading from overseas.

Their pleas did not find a sympathetic audience at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), where regulators said high prices are mostly the result of soaring world demand for grains combined with high fuel prices and drought-induced shortages in many countries.

The regulatory clash came amid evidence that a rash of headlines in recent weeks about food riots around the world has prompted some in the United States to stock up on staples.

Costco and other grocery stores in California reported a run on rice, which has forced them to set limits on how many sacks of rice ...

Mr. Potato Heads Off Food Crisis by Mary Sparrowdancer

[URL=http://www.rense.com/general81/pota.htm]]]www.rense.com/general81/pota.htm[/URL]

For those of us who have grown tired (sick and tired) of supporting the pseudo and synthetic food industry, there is a simple way out of this giant mess. Anyone who has access to a little dirt can reclaim the responsibility of growing at least a portion of our foods right in our own yards, and we can begin today and start out very simply.

One of the easiest and most nutritious homegrown foods is the potato. The potato has long been the victim of curious false advertising. The truth is that fresh, organically grown potatoes can be viewed as one of the top three most nutrient-dense foods in the green kingdom...

Sorry I haven't been able to respond.

This is "John" from San Jose, CA.

I appear to have been blocked or have
had my alias hacked, somehow.

Not sure. I remember Jim from Nebraska
(now Jim Lincoln from Nebraska) had something
similar happen to him a couple of years
ago.

Enjoyed the exchange between Neil and
the guy from Dayton, OH (where I spent the
first 15 years of my life--in the Riverside area
near Beavercreek).

Oh, I get it: John has a firearm, therefore he needs to heed Is. 2:4 etc. But knives are even more like swords ‚Ästhave any of these in your kitchen? Matt. 7:2

Okay Neil, I get it. From now on count me silent among the nobodies that have not attained to this special extra-gospel knowledge you are privy to.

By the way, I do not purpose anything to be done in breach of due and proper order. The mighty God who can perform all things (as if it were nothing) will also lead the nations to convert their weapons into farm tools one day: but THIS DAY is the day of salvation, TODAY, for all of us who already keep the commandments of the Lord Jesus Christ.

"Pardon me while I am at a loss when trying to picture what legitimate role is possible for firearms among the members of the body elect"

Fallacy: your inability to think of a good reason doesn't prove it's wrong. John was making an offhand remark, not boasting, & his lawful pastimes are none of your business. See John 7:24

Neil, we are at the meteyard of sorts, no? If there's not a willingness (no, i'm not holding any pistols to make you) to bring to the touchstone, then why pretend any more, and cumber about?

Pardon me while I am at a loss when trying to picture what legitimate role is possible for firearms among the members of the body elect, who keep the commandments of Jesus. Even for the cause of hunting for survival, I doubt the times, situations, and seasons are always proven fit either to hoard such weights, and much worse to gird with: we must go as the Lord appoints.

Have you complained about prices for your bullet lead, John, but have nothing to show for among the persons you recieve? I've heard many people bragging about their weapons and whatisnot: surely you do not lack, do you?

All I do now is target-shooting.

I'd like to do more hunting but I live
in a very urban area, where such options
are rather limited.

Could this lead to price controls in the near future? Maybe Revelation 6:6 is coming to pass before our eyes. (No I will not quote it. I want you to open the book).

I had to call my friend, who used to work for Cypress.

He said T.J. Rogers is still head of Cypress and has
founded at least one other company (can't remember the
name), but he's not so prominent in the news these days.

10 years ago or so, T.J. led the charge to fight-off an
attempt by Jessie jackson and his people to "liberalize"
hiring practices here (by trying to increase emphasis on
the person's heretige/race/etc. and not just their merits).

Apart from this and sporatic commentary on excessive taxes
and the added stress they inflict on local industry I haven't
heard much from T.J. lately.

Was that executive T.J. Rogers of Cypruss Semiconductor?

He's certainly one of our more outspoken conservative CEOs.

I might be more concerned by the "doubling" of food prices
were it not for the fact that prices of so many other products
are going way up as well.

The lead I buy for my firearms/bullet-making hobby has more
than doubled in the past 2 years, as have other things I shop
for.

Yet again, industry runs to mommy (gov't) when things get tough. Where do we get this belief that corporate execs are natural capitalists? I'm glad the CFTC ignored them. Let them eat cake!

Back in the '80s, only one semiconductor executive opposed calls for "industrial policy" to compete with Japan.
