    Good thing I dont eat much any more. Getting old means less sleep..and less need for food. At least for me.
    Which means I SHOULD look like twiggy. :redface:

    One of the blessings this nation truly has is our food production is so vast that the average citizen isn't spending a hugh percentage of our incomes on food.

    WalMart CEO (I forget his name) sees inflation pressures starting in June. Stock up on food people, that's what I'm doing. Get your self a weapon of some sort as well. I have a both a Remington Shotgun and a Glock 23 but get what you're comfortable with. I feel sorry for those of you in big cities.

    If I'm wrong, well then I'll just have a lot of food.

    Farmers sell to the highest bidder and guess who that will be when the dollar continues to devalue? Hint: Not us. We send more and more of our food overseas.
