  • Debunking The Food Inflation Myth In 2 Charts [View article]
    I've watched ice cream go from a half gallon (which it has been for decades) to 1.75 qt., to 1.5 qt., and the price stays the same or increases. And the chart shows it as "zero". This is not the only commodity with shrinking sizes. Sure some of the meats are lower. That's because the farmers didn't have feed for their animals because of the drought and sold them off prematurely. Wait til the shortages catch up and watch what happens to the prices. And vegetables are commanding the price per pound t-bone steak used to get. Get out to the store yourself Lou.

  • Friday Follies: Come And See The Show [View article]
    Phil, I appreciate you digging up all the charts and figures and doing a bunch of math BUT the bottom line is what proves or dis-proves the case. The bottom line is: the national debt has increased more in Obama's first 3 years than it did in Bush's 8. That doesn't indicate a cut in gov't spending to me. I'm no Bush fan so don't get me wrong. He made a huge mistake going into Iraq, costing us much life, limb, and treasure, not to mention changing the ruling party from Sunni to Shite. (Shites hate us way more than Sunnis, but that's another story.) Take whatever moveon puts out with a grain of salt. They are a very subversive and anti-American org.

    Understand the difference between proven and unproven reserves. ANWR has not been drilled to know what the proven reserves are.

    Doesn't matter where it goes. It adds to the worldwide supply, thereby reducing the price. This is a very simple supply demand relationship sandyb. Surely you can grasp it. Also understand the difference between proven and estimated reserves. You have to do a lot of drilling to get "proven" reserves (which they have not done). Estimated reserves in ANWR are greater than Saudi Arabia's. We need to drill it!

    There is no hydrogen anywhere in the world. It is all tied up in compounds like water or natural gas. To separate it requires energy, more energy than is received when you burn it to power a car or anything else. A net negative. Hydrogen is not the answer anyway. It has a valence of 1. VAST amounts are required to produce significant amounts of energy.

    Do you really believe Gore's 4 cent tax would have us living better today? After all the gov't money pissed away on alternative energy with no results I doubt it. Look at ethanol made from corn. Anyone who has basic math skills and a knowledge of high school chemistry knows that can never be economically feasible...Yet the corn subsidies continue. The only way to get us off OPEC oil is to DRILL. Drill ANWR, drill the gulf, put in the Keystone pipeline, build more refineries and flood the market. Sell the excess to China and Japan. I have no time for Gore and his bad-science vilification of carbon.

    Have owned GGN for many years. Wished I had never seen it. ROC is an accounting nightmare.
