Watched the Tonight show with Jay Leno. I understand what he means about the ‘food’ that most Americans carry with them. I am one of them.
Lack of exercise, age , and eating habits do make a difference. Of course it is hard to exercise when things limit your activities. Pain does that. I wish that I had exercised more when I was able. Enough about that. Been looking up the ‘food shortage’ that people have been talking about. It isn’t about a lack of food so much as a lack of being able to BUY food for many people. What I don’t understand is the rationing that is being done. Doesn’t supply and demand usually also have something to do to effect the prices of things?
When things are hard to find, prices go up. The food is there; but, limiting how much that we can buy will make the price go up. That doesn’t seem “rational” with folks crying out “shortage”. The suppliers will like to get more money for their products, but creating an artificial shortage just ain’t right! Yes, many in the USA can afford to purchase food, no luxury items, just ordinary food. Why make things worse? Artificial inflation created for more profits is like cutting someones wrists so they need to get transfusions. The media doesn’t bring up that part of what is going on, just “shortage & rationing”. The extra money being made isn’t going into the pockets of the farmer who raised the food, after all many farmers are going broke. Where is the money going? Where oh where is the conscience of the business world? In their respective wallets?
