An aside to the gas price thread


Last night the news folks were mentioning that meat prices, especially beef will sky rocket in the next few months as a result of a lack of feed corn and other meals for farm animals. The cause for this is ETHANOL. Welcome to the world of agricultural economics/food costs being effected by environmetal policy and laws.

Same news folks who predict annually that gas prices will reach an average of $5 a gallon before date X?

If you just make up random shite to sound compelling on TV, eventually inflation will catch up to your nonsense and prove you right....eventually....

Well this thread deserves the proverbial germans. However, I do agree that it can't be mentioned enough.

Ethanol policy is enjoyed by both sides. The dems like the environmentl aspect and the Rs hear subsidies for farmers.

Meanwhile we get lower gas mileage, screwed up small and marine engines, and beef inflation.

Can't we just grind up the carcasses of other dead cows and feed that to the living cattle?

What could POSSIBLY go wrong with that idea?

I'm not 100% sure but I think there are laws against that here in the US.

Has already happened to a degree. Over the last year Sam's Club bulk ground meat has went from $1.99 per pound to $3.49 the last time i went in December. This was not an anomaly, and the price had a slow and steady increase over the year.

They were talking a 25% increase in between now and June. But don't worry we have no inflation in America.

Why don't they just feed the cows grass?

I'm against ethanol subsidies, FWIW, but grass-fed meat is better anyway.
