Increased demand from rapidly developing nations such as China, the use of crops for biofuels, global stocks at 25-year lows and market speculation are blamed for pushing prices of wheat, corn and rice to record highs.

i don't know how the Amerikan Regime "twist and turn" our discussion on bio fuel, initially concentrating on ETHANOL from highly productive sugar cane, beet sugar and cassave to that used for food!!!!!! Using corn for biofuel, hmmm!


crazy!

Anyway, those products such as cassave can easily be converted into "animal feed", or as "flour" to feed people, should there be shortfalls.


cheerios!

note: most nations have stockpiles of food, and adjustment can be made quite quickly. Anyway, let's see what the new game is going to. alas.....it's just a smokescreen, I think!

Right!! Let China and all friendly developing countries  work together to produce food crops with golden super abundant harvests, in so doing we could thwart the evil scheme of KKK in their daylight robbery of the poor!
Burma, Laos, N. Korea, China, Nepal, plus Africa, Central Asia, Latin America, all with huge arable lands for food crops cultivations.
Some crops are cheaper and easier to grow than corn, e.g like cassavo, sugar cane,sweet potatoes and soya, can thrive in poor soil and relatively dry conditions.!
So start work now!!

crazy news.
I just heard on radio, US$1 per kg for Thailand's rice!!!!!!

Imagine, chicken cost only US$1.5 per kg in Malaya.
and we know 1kg of chicken meat = 3kg of rice.

Mr. Samak already make joke of this in BANGKOKPOST online news.


Wonder, how many people in Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaya knows this. This is where Thailand's 3 m tonnes of rice exports goes to besides the desperate Phillipines/Indonesians which needs around 3m tonnes! But today, Mr. Samak said, Malayan only spend less than 12% on food.....

he expects Thai rice export to fall as a result.


THIS EXPLAINs why Malayan needs to have indigeneous chicken and pork farms to feed the population. Afterall Chicken, pork can feed on a variety of foods. My staff just said, might have to learn how to cook western, have grilled chicken with pepper sauce + cheap boiled corn!

ha ha ha
