There is no food shortage in the U S.There is no oil shortage either.Fuel prices are falsly supported by speculaters and a devalued dollar.People in Texas and other border states are driving across to Mexico where they can buy diesel fuel for 2 dollars a gallon.That's half what it is in the U S.
We are getting screwed by the money men.

Whatever you do, never listen to these Wall St Thugs....because they will always give you advice based solely in filling their pockets and never in the interest or welfare of the people. Know, that there is no shortage of food, suddenly this disease or sickness has caught on around the world....it is only because of stock brokers who are now playing casino bets on world food production and hoarding food to mimic the peak-oil thugs.
