You are truly a prophet, oh master. But, you'd think this would be obvious?

Let the truth prevail.
Our subsidy programs have created this. Federal subsidies have made ethanol make economic sense when it doesn't. I hope there is policy initiative to change this all.

Subsidies may have exacerbated the problem, but unfettered profiteering IS the problem. Food and medicine should be regulated.

When you move to a self-regulating system, the foxes rule the henhouse. Great for the foxes, not so great for the much more numerous chickens.
