The good news is - burning corn bio-fuel in your vehicle prevents Global Warming.

Where's the beef? Cow shortage forcing industry to make rough cuts

WICHITA, Kan. Years of drought are reshaping the U.S. beef industry with feedlots and a major meatpacking plant closing because there are too few cattle left in the United States to support them.

Cattle numbers have been falling for years as the price of corn used to feed animals in feedlots skyrocketed. The drought accelerated the process, but ..............

When corn prices first spiked to $8 a bushel nearly four years ago, about 70 big feed yards went up for sale in the High Plains feeding area that includes Texas, Kansas, Colorado and Nebraska, Bretz said. Today, there are 10 and 15 feed yards for sale in the region, mostly in Texas. Bretz said he knows of 15 more that are empty, three recently dismantled and two others now being torn down.

BUT, because of the Bloomberg-type restrictions on how many ounces of soft drink you can have, the price is offset. You can get arrested for super sizing your drink or fries.

Ethanol is such a scam and while it does benefit a few farmers, it sure is hard on people who need tortillas to eat and cows who need corn! Soon we'll all be eating Tofu with Michael Bloomberg.

You can have my Bloomberg. I'll just eat the tofu with a 16oz. diet coke.
