"GENEVA, Switzerland - The United States and the European Union have taken a "criminal path" by contributing to an explosive rise in global food prices through using food crops to produce biofuels, the United Nations special rapporteur on the right to food said today.
At a press conference in Geneva, Jean Ziegler of Switzerland said that fuel policies pursued by the U.S. and the EU were one of the main causes of the current worldwide food crisis."
LOL!! Some blame the Arab Spring on rising food prices created by burning corn.

I bet you think that buying stock from another stock holder creates jobs?
Really??
I am a business owner & I have run other companies. You don't know sh*t.
Those that worked with me all contributed to the companies growth & profits. In my first real job, 15 years with that company )Most as CEO) we increased profits by over 2000%. The owners had their investment back & never had to invest another dime as the company used its own value to borrow when needed & pay it back out of profits.
You wanting to hand the owners money would have had nothing to do with the company's success or profits.
If you would have handed me money, it would have no effect.
As a business manager / Owner,. I view my employees as assets.
They made/make me money.
I don't hand out jobs because someone gave me money. I employ people when there is a need to do so as my business demands
That is the difference between me & you.
You view rich people as being so kind & generous that they had out jobs to be nice & employees are damn lucky to get a paycheck no matter how small.
Me, I view employees as partners who thru their work, I make money. When I met them away from work, I would introduce them to my wife as someone I work with. Not as someone that works for me. Employees make the company, a CEO/Manager just calls the plays.
So, Flack, keep handing the wealthy money. They do littler investing in actually creates jobs. They buy pieces of paper not all IPOs.
You hand the Mitt Romney's money, I prefer to make sure the real job creators get the money.
LmFAO... I am a business owner & I have run other companies. You don't know sh*t.

Only you liars who make any claims about their race, business owner, education or their military service are liars Dumbass Dave, given you won't and can't prove a damn thing.

Harvard Study Finds RomneyCare Problematic
Six years after RomneyCare became law, health insurance coverage in Massachusetts is all but universal. Yet a new statewide survey finds that those most in need of medical care are finding it harder than ever to pay for.
According to the study, which was directed by researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health and sponsored by WBUR, the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation, and the Robert Wood ­Johnson Foundation, 78 percent of sick adults consider health care costs a serious (50 percent say very serious) problem in Massachusetts.
And far from seeing improvement, nearly two-thirds of sick adults say the problem has only gotten worse over the past five years.
You know, the whole time Obama was in Massachusetts the other day preaching that Romneycare was a success and the "model" for his Obamacare, I kept thinking Romneycare wasn't doing so great. The Bostonians' reaction behind him didn't give me any indication either. They just clapped on cue - like seals.

So thanks for confirming my suspicion.

Maybe a box of mac & cheese is less that 90 cents a meal when you buy 5400 at a crack for a year's supply & pay cash.

It's hard to imagine Homer and dem and other liberals having pride in the "pioneer spirit".
They would have condemned their bravery to expand and settle the west under tremendous hardships.
What liberals seem to be missing is hardships create character - and character develops strength to endure hardship.
Why would anyone encourage laziness and dependency to deprive people from growing stronger in the face of adversity and overcoming hardships?
Homer? Dem? Your thoughts?
The Homers, et al of this country are drug addicts willing to sell their freedom and steal yours to get their free gub'mint stuff.

During the Revolution, these types would've been made swamp fill by the Patriots or sent back to King George with their redcoat tails shoved up their butts.

Alas, today, the Magic Negro leads hoards of the redcoat bas turds across a once free land.

<quoted text> Worrying about what other people are doing instead of working to better yourself is the highlight of being a progressive/democrat. See, you would keep the poor poorer just to stop what you perceive as the wealthy don't get wealthier. I have news for you. You could take everything the wealthy people have and within 10 years they will have gotten it back plus some. It is their nature. It is in their DNA. You libtards are clueless!!!!
My God Flack.

This country did very well in the 50's. A man could hold a job & raise a family in his owned home. That job could be a clerk in a store or a delivery man for the local bakery or run a machine in the local machine shop. Not today. It takes at least two incomes or more in these types of jobs.

The ratio of CEO pay to average worker pay as gone through the roof.

The less & less employees are paid, the less & less they have to buy things. Buying things run the economy.

Handing money to the wealthy only to have a small portion run into the economy is stupid.

It had nothing to do with what I am doing. It is not hating the wealthy.
It is about everyone sharing in the growth of this nations wealth. This is what made us great & so prosperous after WWII through the 50.

You f*cking idiots think this is about hating the wealthy when you are too GD stupid to know the wealthy have been gaming the system.

Why has nearly all the growth on wealth of this country gone to the wealthy? It was not like that before.

Evidently you think it was hard work by the wealthy. Yep, hard work buying politicians & bending the tax law & regulations to their favor. Deregulation!! Deregulation!!

So business must not be so good then? Because apparently the money you make isn't very much.

Why would you want the power elite to take more?

Have you stopped hiring and/or converted your full-time employees into part-time too?
