    Obama has directed the Dept of Agriculture to buy up millions of dollars of beef, pork, and poltry.

    He says it's to help farmers.

    What he's doing is screwing consumers.

    Taxpayers aren't going to save any money when the government is taking the products out of the market.

    I think this administration knows that, too. They want even more people on food stamps, it is one of their big achievements. Ask what they will do with all the meat they buy?

    They will dole it out to whoever is a party loyalist.

    obama thinks that a dramatic spike in food prices will help him get reelected when he says it's not his fault. Republicans did it.

    Do you really think they'll do anything other than totally waste it? There's an established protocol that illustrates how government agencies deal with food resources. Of course, the meat the fed is buying probably belongs to big agribusiness and they want to make sure their co-conspirators in supplying crappy food minimize their losses. Doesn't matter what the fed does with the meat, their buddies have gotten paid.

    This administration is already moving to drive up meat prices through the EPA's action approving grain sorghum for ethanol production. This will drive up the price of feed, driving up the price of meat.

    And now THIS?? Obama is ass-backwards and stick stupid.
