That's part of the problem! 8 billion people really is nothing to a planet this size. The problem lies more on the fact of the human entitlement emotion. When people feel like they deserve the best things in life & look down apon the less fortunate & scrutinize the little they have, there's a real problem!

Good harvests had built up a mass of 250,000,000 bushels of wheat to be 'carried over' when 1929 opened. By May there was also a winter-wheat crop of 560,000,000 bushels ready for harvest in the Mississippi Valley. This oversupply caused a drop in wheat prices so heavy that the net incomes of the farming population from wheat were threatened with extinction. Stock markets are always sensitive to the future state of commodity markets and the slump in Wall-street predicted for May by Sir George Paish, arrived on time. In June 1929 the position was saved by a severe drought in the Dakotas and the Canadian West, plus unfavorable seed times in Argentina and Eastern Australia. The oversupply would now be wanted to fill the big gaps in the 1929 world wheat production. From 97c per bushel in May wheat rose to $1.49 in July. When it was seen that at this figure the American farmers would get rather more for their smaller crop than that of 1928, up went stock again and from far and wide orders came to buy shares for the profits to come.

Thank you, Sonic. And, no, I'm not a racist. I do believe, however, that the two races cannot live together peacefully and should be some form of separate but equal.

Americans are clever people and I have faith we'll figure this out in a way that does not involve inter-marriage or cross-breeding.

Did you see her on the floor yesterday? Perhaps she should look into acting; in B movies!
During a floor speech Thursday, Bachmann called on the House to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law, passed three years ago.
"Repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens," Bachmann said.
Bachmann suggested Washington should stop the carnage before it's too late.
"Let's love people, let's care about people, let's repeal it now while we can," she said
Addressing CPAC on March 16, Bachmann also called conservatism "the movement of love."

I'm just curious, if the entire world just exists so greedy assholes have someplace to wreck, why in hell did God even have to waste time making so many attractive women? He could've just made them all dumpy looking Russian women with their flabby breasts hanging down over their stomachs like watermelons, and saved everybody a LOT of time and effort! St. Barts is now full of the fat, doughy Russians too. Where once there were hoards of semi-nude tall thin Nordic beauties now you're just as likely to round a corner and see a herd of walrus lying there naked, thereby burning out your eyeballs.

Obama Ammunition Purchases Strip Police Departments and Jeopardize Safety of Unarmed Citizens

The nationwide shortage of ammunition has left many police departments scrambling to get their hands on the necessary rounds - with some even bartering among each other.

Meanwhile, Rep. Timothy Huelskamp (R-Kansas) says the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has failed to respond to multiple members of Congress asking why DHS bought more than 1.6 billion rounds in the past year.

Police Chief Cameron Arthur of Jenks, Oklahoma says, "Ammunition and assault weapons in general have skyrocketed...In addition to the fact, not only is it a lot more expensive, but the time to get it could be six months to a year, or in some cases even longer."

Arthur says he is waiting on an order placed last October and that many departments have begun to trade and barter with each other because of the high demand.

"Most police departments are having a very difficult time even getting the necessary ammunition for handguns, shotguns and especially rifles," Arthur said.

"With the delay in ammunition, some departments are limiting the number of rounds they carry in their handgun because of the shortage of ammunition. We get to the point where it is difficult to have enough ammo to train and also equip the officers."

Chief Pryor of Rollingwood, Texas says of the shortage:

"We started making phone calls and realized there is a waiting list up to a year. We have to limit the amount of times we go and train because we want to keep an adequate stock."

"Nobody can get us ammunition at this point," says Sgt. Jason LaCross of the Bozeman, Montana police department.

LaCross says that manufacturers are so far behind that they won't even give him a quote for an order.

"We have no estimated time on when it will even be available," LaCross says.

He worries that when ammunition is finally available the high price will squeeze the department's budget.

"The other options are to reduce the amount of training and things like that," he said.

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Department has also cut down on firearm training due to the high cost and low supply of ammunition.

"The concern over firearms availability and ammunition availability and potentials of gun control certainly has impacted the availability of ammunition purchased locally," Sgt. Jody Mays says.

He says the department has cut a third of their normal in service firearm training:

"It's forced us...to use ammunition more economically."

Police Chief John Mabry in Marinette, Wisconsin says, "Ammo is expensive and lot tougher to get. People don't have it in stock and it's back-ordered."

His colleague, Menominee Chief, Brett Botbyl agrees: "We're looking at a four to nine-month wait."

Some departments have even applied for grants to pay for the high-priced ammunition.

"The Florence Police Department is looking for some help filling its clips," reports Cincinnati.com

Chief Tom Szurlinski says the grant would go a long way given the price and limited supply of ammunition.

Flack, if you type in__great depression wheat facts__you'll find dozens of accurate explanations regarding the role that wheat prices, the dust bowl and even livestock played in the depression.

Wheat prices definitely did not cause the depression but did add to the misery.

Anyways, I'm pretty sure the one-child rule was a matter of desperation because, THEY WAITED TOO LONG TO STERILIZE THESE GODDAM IDIOTS WHO RELY ON GROWTH DESPITE THE OBVIOUS CONSEQUENCES!!! They are managing to export a healthy crop of female babies to the U.S. and everywhere else, nonetheless, so maybe there's a buck to be made selling them back to those horny guys back home?

Then in August the wheat price fell when France and Italy were bragging of a magnificent harvest and the situation in Australia improved. This sent a shiver Wall Street and stock prices quickly dropped, but word of cheap stocks brought a fresh rash of 'stags' amateur speculators and investors. Congress had also voted on a 100 million dollar relief package for farmers, hoping to stabilize wheat prices. By October though, the price had fallen to $1.31 per bushel. The falling commodity markets in other countries told upon even American self-confidence, and the stock market began to falter.
On October 24, 1929, with the Dow just past its September 3 peak of 381.17, the market finally turned down and panic selling started.

Julius Genachowski, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission and friend of the president, announced his resignation Friday.

He will be leaving the FCC after a mixed tenure that has disappointed some of the consumer groups that were his earliest supporters, but that also sketched a plan to bring Americans more access to broadband Internet for years ahead.

Genachowski is the ex-husband of media propagandist and Obama debate stooge Martha Raddatz.
