Something to be aware of: the possibility of impending food shortages


  1. We're stocked up for a few months. It's good to be prepared. Gas prices are also going to continue to go up, predicted to be up to five dollars/gallon by 2012. Does this feel like the Carter years to anyone else but me?

  2. How come you cannot tell another round of abortion fetishism?

    From http://www.newstatesman.com/blogs/the-staggers/2011/01/food-prices-markets-sector please consider:

    The story of food prices is as much a part of the picture of what's wrong with our financial sector as the Greek and Irish debt crises, or the obscene level of bankers' bonuses. The reality is that the same speculators who caused the global economic meltdown through their illustrious trade in sub-prime mortgages are now betting on our food system, too.

    Why concern with overpopulation is wrong: http://www.theinterim.com/2008/july/10overpopulation.html

  3. There is a lot or rhetoric in this clip. This problem is not a lack of food or over population. It is inflation. This is what happens when a country inflates it's currency like the United States has done recently. Historical examples are post World War I Germany and recently Zimbabwe. Inflating the currency (adding paper money to the circulation of money) devalues the currency and everything costs more. It is a hidden tax on the people.

    Regarding population, please watch this video and the other 3 in the series by the Population Research Institute - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZVOU5bfHrM
