Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Behind the Food Crisis

Here is an informative report on the food shortage situation, which has played a big part in the Egypt uprising. The punchline is who is profiting on food right now. It's not restaurants, it's not farmers, it's not food processors, it's.... Goldman Sachs! Geez, these guys seem to be able to make money everywhere on everything!


  1. I'm willing to blame Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan etc, but I also believe the environmentalists and the ethanol insanity is keeping plenty of people hungry around the world. Those regulations would be enough to place a twinkly in any speculator's eye.

    While hunger is no doubt a reason for uprisings, many of these people have been hungry for a very long time. Droughts in Africa? Yes. Evil Dictators who take every penny of aid. Yes.

  2. Who do you think is behind the environmentalists who promote green energy? Look at the websites of the big foundations (Ford, Carnegie, etc) and you will find a whole section dedicated to environmentalism and green energy. Who do you think writes these regulations? These are basically all the same people - the interlock between these environmentalist-generating foundations and policy writers who are ex-banksters is huge. Meanwhile, they ship our jobs off to China where there are no environmental regulations at all and workers die poisoned on the production line.
    Recently, Egypt had its food allotment cut and that is what set off the popular uprising. Because when you have so little and it is cut, that really hurts. Looks like the CIA has taken it back over as they have a lot of experience with this sort of thing. Get prepared for the new Egyptian dictator, who will be the same as the old one. Maybe this one will actually go along with abortion, unlike Mubarak. I mean they have it carved in granite that they want to reduce the world population by 90%..
