Wow you must not get out of Oregon much. The roads here are great, especially compared to California highways. Have you driven I5 to LA? The trucks have beaten that road so badly the highway is littered with car parts.

Dear Bogert,

America Press runs on "only the Facts"!

An article should never be subjective. The reporter should report only the facts; he should not try to sway the readers to form an opinion similar to his.

Goldman Sachs' Lawyers May Have Giant Squid Nightmares

4/16/2010 by Frank James

If the Securities and Exchange Commission's fraud lawsuit against investment bank Goldman Sachs ever goes to trial before a jury, who could blame the company's defense lawyers for screening from the jury pool people anyone who's read Matt Taibbi's very entertaining, and damning, piece in Rolling Stone last year about the company?

Called "The Great American Bubble Machine," the highly negative piece starts with imagery that has become famous.

The first thing you need to know about Goldman Sachs is that it's everywhere. The world's most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money. In fact, the history of the recent financial crisis, which doubles as a history of the rapid decline and fall of the suddenly swindled dry American empire, reads like a Who's Who of Goldman Sachs graduates.

By now, most of us know the major players. As George Bush's last Treasury secretary, former Goldman CEO Henry Paulson was the architect of the bailout, a suspiciously self-serving plan to funnel trillions of Your Dollars to a handful of his old friends on Wall Street. Robert Rubin, Bill Clinton's former Treasury secretary, spent 26 years at Goldman before becoming chairman of Citigroup — which in turn got a $300 billion taxpayer bailout from Paulson...

Those lead paragraphs have led legions of Goldman watchers to refer to the company as "giant squid" or some variation of same.

Again, that's obviously not an image defense lawyers would want lingering in the mind of jurors who wind up sitting on the case.

John get back to the basics!

Dear Bogert,

Wheat is grown in 42 states in the United States.

So how did it get speculated to $200.00 a Bushel?


# Six classes bring order to about 30 thousand varieties of wheat. They are: Hard Red Winter, Hard Red Spring, Soft Red Winter, Durum, Hard White and Soft White.

# More foods are made with wheat than any other cereal grain.

# In the United States, one acre of wheat (depending on wheat class and where grown)yields an average 42 bushels of wheat.

# About half of the wheat grown in the United States is used domestically.(Source: USDA)

# The state of Kansas is the largest wheat producer in the United States with North Dakota a close second.

# One bushel of wheat contains approximately one million individual kernels.

# One bushel of wheat weighs approximately 60 pounds.

# One bushel of wheat yields approximately 42 pounds of white flour.

# One bushel of wheat yields approximately 60 pounds of whole-wheat flour.

# A bushel of wheat yields 42 commercial loaves of white bread (one-and-a-half pound loaves).

# A bushel of wheat makes about 90 one-pound loaves of whole wheat bread.

# Spaghetti was the number one pasta sold in the United States in 1998 with elbow macaroni coming in second.

# Ninety-three percent of Americans eat AT LEAST one pizza per month.(Source: Bolla Wines.)

# Approximately 3 billion pizzas are sold in the United States each year.

# The graham cracker was named for its inventor, Sylvester Graham, a 19th-century American clergyman and nutrition advocate.

# Crackers main ingredient is unbleached flour from soft red or soft white wheat.

And the Price of Diesel vs. the Price of Wheat;
The break-even price for 2009 harvested wheat is projected to be about $5.14 per bushel ($180/35 bu). The break-even price for 2010 harvested wheat is projected to be $3.86 ($135/35 bu).

How Goldman Sachs gambled on starving the world's poor - and won

Posted by Johann Hari 11 days ago

By now, you probably think your opinion of Goldman Sachs and its swarm of Wall Street allies has rock-bottomed at raw loathing. You're wrong. There's more. It turns out the most destructive of all their recent acts has barely been discussed at all. Here's the rest. This is the story of how some of the richest people in the world - Goldman, Deutsche Bank, the traders at Merrill Lynch, and more - have caused the starvation of some of the poorest people in the world, just so they could make a fatter profit.

In 2008 one ton cost $439.72 now it is $157.67---what was the U.S. Government really doing?
