In other words blame the farmers for growing corn for ethanol instead of food.
I rarely post here, but felt compelled to share today's experience with you... Today a state Ag inspector and two county officials show up and scare the bee-jesus out of me. First they accuse me of selling products and milk, then explain that even "giving milk products away" is illegal in California. Now everything is pasteurized, but it is
illegal to share milk products in any form! They explained it was even ILLEGAL to give it to my own children if they did not live under my roof! I can't even take a lasagna dish to my grown sons home without risk of being fined, arrested and or jailed! This is OUTRAGIOUS!!!! How can it be illegal to give something away or take a casserole to a friend's house?
SLEEPWALK TO STARVATION
With hindsight, it was the late 1990's and the first decade of the 21st Century when farming went into irreversible decline as it lurched and staggered like a perpetual drunkard from crisis to disaster...

What's all this negative short-sighted and ill-researched information I'm hearing about electric cars?
1) Current electric car technology has equal or superior range to a car running on gasoline, ethanol, or hydrogen.
2) Charge times are from 1-3 hours.
-Why do people view this as a limiting factor? Am I completely alienated or do people drive their cars 24/7 these days?
3) Electricity can be produced at one's house for free, aside from the initial cost.
I think people are stuck on the whole liquid fuel thing. It reminds me of a friend of mine who became addicted to heroine and tried to quit by switching to a 'safer' substance. She is now addicted to methadone
