snappysandyAmerica is the biggest producer of Corn in the world. The USA has it’s own stockpile.
The Corn traded on the Commodities Exchange is used for feed and other products. For the last 4 years Corporations like Exxon and other oil companies and grain companies, are the ones that have built the Ethanol plants. The oil companies will make money no matter what you put in your car’s gas tank. These Ethanol plants have made deals with our farmers for their corn harvest to be used to make an alternative fuel; Ethanol. So, less and less will be going for feed for cattle and hogs, in the Meat industry. The Government is not only telling us to not only eat a vegetarian diet, but it is imposing it’s authority over the private sector by reducing the demand for beef and pork in our country, and reducing the amount of beef raised for exports to countries like Japan and China, to name a few.
If the cattle ranchers don’t have corn for feed they can’t raise enough cattle to export, therefore decreasing their bottom-line. The same goes for the farmers who raise hogs. So, the pressure to reduce meat consumption among Americans and to change our eating habits to a vegetarian diet is to the advantage of the oil and grain companies and to the energy industry. Another way to look at it is that they are taking the food out of our mouths to fulfill their Energy agenda. Ethanol will only supply 11-13% of America’s alternative fuel needs. Using corn to make Ethanol is more expensive than using let’s say Sugar, yet the Government is willing to go the Corn route.
Americans really need to learn how to connect the dots. There is so much more going on out there than they even realize. Yet, too many are not taking the time to investigate these things for themselves. How Americans live their lives, what they eat, and what doctor they go to is up to them, but little by little they are giving that right, that power, to the Government, when they allow it to tell them how and what to eat, and what kind of medical procedures they can and can not have. No one is connecting the dots. Are you?
