I'd call it capitalism.

I don't know of one livestock farmer who cares one little bit when a corn farmer is losing his shirt. They defend low corn prices because it puts money in their pockets.

Same goes with the foreign countries who are crying about wheat prices. They don't care if the farmer is producing the wheat at a loss. They just care that it's cheap.

All farmers receive subsidies to keep the price of food artificially low in this country so the people don't riot and revolt. Without them most farmers would go bankrupt, the food supply would disappear, prices would skyrocket, and all hell would break loose.

For myself, I like Ethanol simply for fuel diversity. Not all vehicles can be electric, gas or diesel. Just diversity. There's also the fact that it can be made. MUCH harder to make gasoline. Of course we can also make bio diesel, but diversity helps us survive. Ethanol is a straight forward process and can even be done at home.

While having industry at it's height is great, I think most can agree that the earth has not seen its last downturn.

From an economic standpoint, at least its another thing corn can go for. Some people say it's raised food prices while others point to huge overstocks of corn.

Plants use other fuel sources because it's more efficient, not because they can't.

With all the chemicals growers use now days, it probably isn't fit to eat, so do something else with it!

Once again, you overestimate your own intelligence. (Hint; Anything above moron and you're there Dude! ) I have no illusions of winning you over. It's apparent from the get go that you're too close minded and unable to think for yourself to see anything but your point of view. I'm not going to waste MY valuable time attempting to educate you. It's just pure entertainment stirring up windbags like yourself.

So, you see the ability to run a profitable business in todays economy as "greed". That sounds like rationale for your failures at your occupation. Never begrudge others for your own shortcomings.

And yes, I HAVE met a number of farmers who ARE CEO's of large publicly traded companies. Funny thing....You don't get to that pay grade by being an idiot that backs losing propositions on a regular basis.

HAAAAAAAAA! So did you get your itty bitty feelings hurt little girl?

That's funny stuff,,, Calling me names and accusing me of being a "name calling adolescent".

Not in denial Sparky. The difference between me and you is, I can see reality and you haven't the foggiest notion what reality is. Go play with your Barbie doll and leave mommy's computer alone until you grow up a bit.
