A lot of Countries do not want to buy corn fom the US because its full of GMO's. The US doesnt care who dies in America, as long as its not Obama's Muslim's.

Good !!!

Maybe food prices will begin to decline.

The price of some meat cuts are getting so expensive, you'd think they were feeding the animals CAVIAR, instead of corn.

I hunt deer/small game is season and fish thru the Spring and Summer. We pick wild berries and raise domestic blueberrries. If necessary one needs little from a grocery store. There are many wild plants that are edible and tasty.

Any Country that values corn as ethanol rather then a food crop deserves what it harvests. The millionaire farmers are probably eating Caviar and they are damn sure buying the best meat ethanol money can buy. They're already starting to jack gas prices to make up for any imagined loses.
