    The problem is deeper than you realize. Everything you consume is hauled by truck since they let the railroads die.

    Fuel surcharges are going to raise the prices of many food items, and other consumable commodities.

    I have seen a 25% increase in food staples since before Christmas, and it doesn't look like it will get better.

    Milk was 2.58 a gallon in Nov, 3.05 now. Eggs from 1.60 to 2.00.

    This is the reality of the debt driven economy and the real estate meltdown.

    Bummpy ride coming.

    Many truckers are going bust. The Banks won't repo because there is a market flood of used trucks right now and even if they take them back,they can't sell them! What many do not realize is that 75% of products move by the independent trucker. When they stop rolling it is REALLY going to be rough! Now NAFTA wants to bring the rattle trap Mexican trucks into the U.S.to haul the stuff. If that happpens I can guarantee you there is going to be "BLOOD" and plenty of it! Our own government has been cutting our throats for years. Things are going to get a lot WORSE before they get any better!

    I don't think the truckers are going to go bust. Rates have to be increased to offset the rising fuel. I pay the railroad a surcharge to their normal rates and the two truckers I hire have increased their rates to account for the fuel prices. When the food and hardware pipeline runs dry for lack of truckers the rates will increase.

    Doing safety surveys at catfish farms and processing plants this week in Mississippi. These guys are not going to re-stock their ponds this year. Fuel and feed are over the break even point for the catfish farmer. They'll come right out and tell you it's the dumbasses sellin' their corn and beans for ethanol.

    Can't wait for hamburger to get to $4.00 bucks apound, we're already payin' $3.00 a pound or more for good bacon and feeder pigs are sellin' for less than .25 cents a pound. With corn selling at almost $6.00 a bushel how can anyone aford to feed anything.

    Take a look at the number of Americans living from pay check to pay check! It would only take a few weeks for a chaotic condition to rear it's head. As said before, we're in for a rough ride guys! Hap

    Hey guys, $100.00 will buy 55 euros,that's about tells the whole story. The borrow and spend neo-cons, not the tax and spend liberals are at fault this time! When in history has a nation went to war and cut taxes for its most wealthiest or for that matter, anyone? Save your lead, it'll be worth more than the dollar soon if the same economic policies stay in place. And us being a service country that ron reagan invisioned. Just food for thought...Mike

    Kennedy cut taxes

    I dont know how to link the video.


    In this video from August 13, 1962, when the highest marginal individual income tax rate was 91% and the highest marginal corporate tax was 52%, President John F. Kennedy announced his plan to introduce permanent, across-the-board tax cuts for both individuals and corporations. Kennedy argued that both "logic and equity" demanded tax relief for Americans, and that the dollars released from taxation would create new jobs, new salaries, and spur economic growth and an expanding American economy, thereby creating more tax revenues.

    Kennedy's supply-side tax cuts were passed, and by 1964 the top personal tax rate was 77%, dropping to 70% in 1965. In 1965, the corporate tax rates were reduced to 22% and 48%, from previous rates of 30% and 52%. The Kennedy tax cuts did help expand the economy, resulting in a 106-month economic expansion during the 1960s, the longest expansion in U.S. history until the 120-month expansion of the 1990s. Tax revenues grew by 65% from 1965 to 1970.

    They sure don't make Democrats the way they used to.
