Bullshit from USDA won’t help grow crops

Agriculture Secretary Ed Schafer said government mandates of, and subsidies for, corn-based ethanol don’t have a major effect on food prices.

Right. And the economy really did grow in the first quarter.

As for the Grocery Manufacturers’ Association’s claims that the ethanol mandate, and subsidy, keep its members from producing cheap food, what Kraft Crap produces is not food but ‘food-like substances.” Instead of stuffing America full of white flour, high-fructose corn syrup, and soybeans run through pork bellies, why not give us some real food?
