Wtf........ nobody cares that we're paying for Congress's circle jerk on taxpayers for the Farm lobbies. Many farm owners were making 100-200,000/yr a few years ago if they hand a nice small operation. Past and present taxpayer scams for them have them making $1M today. That's called buying voter sentiment imo. At least in Chicago it's not as overt.

A sister is the milk scam localized to the NE. Maybe 6-8 states involved. It adds around .50-$1 on every gallon. Some of those bucks partially support politicians or their front men?

big business farming gov't handouts is another story.

The oil market game has not adopted to huge amounts of fast $. Regulation is behind the curve. Volitile prices are set at the margin and this crap game may have a 20% cost?

this country has no serious energy policy so there's plenty of slack for volatility.

Rudy had to influence the economics of NYC to fix it. Steve Forbes was his main handler in his run for President. Forbes's influence would follow his comments in every issue. A quick scan would list the basis of his policies.

It's the voter's fault. When their houses become cold to live in they'll wake up.
