    Sis in Kommiefornia sent this, too good.

    THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

    OPEC sells oil for $136.00 a barrel.
    OPEC nations buy U.S. grain at $7.00 a bushel.

    Solution: Sell grain for $136.00 a bushel.

    Can't buy it? Tough! Eat your oil. Ought to go well with a nice thick grilled filet of camel!

    Brazil can produce grain more cheaply than us.


    That's why our farmers want tariff protection from them.


    Unlike oil...grain unfortunately isn't a cartel-monopoly.

    We have more bombs than Brazil.

    Set the price and tell them to stick to the price or we'll come down there!

    Won't happen. Brazil is an important trading partner. That's why Juan McCain is down there acting like a head of state. (We just have certain powerful lobbies that don't want us trading "too" much with them, on certain things).


    It's the New World Order, doncha know.

    The original post should be corrected to read: "$ 146 a barrel" - as of today.
