Re: Food Prices Are Soaring Further Into The Danger Zone!
Santiago, Chile

Last summer, two researchers from the New England Complex Systems Institute published a short paper examining the correlation between rising food prices and civil unrest. It was a timely analysis, to say the least. A number of food riots were occurring throughout the world, not to mention waves of revolution sparked by the high cost of food.

This is nothing new; throughout history whenever people have struggled to put food on the table for their families, social unrest has been a common consequence.

The French Revolution is a classic example; after decades of unsustainable fiscal and monetary practices that wrecked the French economy, the harvest season and subsequent winter of 1788 were particularly harsh. People went hungry, and it ultimately started the revolution.

The researchers’ analysis went a step further, though; they modeled the relationship between food prices and social unrest to reach a simple conclusion– whenever the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO)’s global food price index climbs above 210, conditions ripen for social unrest.
Today, the FAO’s food index is at 213… and rising. Netherlands-based Rabobank recently published its own analysis, forecasting further rises in food prices well into the 3rd quarter of 2013.

There are so many factors driving food prices higher. From a demand perspective, world population is growing at an extraordinary rate… plus the rise of billions of people from developing countries (especially in Asia) into the middle class is quickening demand for resource-intensive foods like beef.

From a supply perspective, drought, soil erosion, and reduction of available farmland all put significant pressure on global agricultural output. And finally, from a monetary perspective, the enormous amount of paper currency being printed in the world is finding its way into agricultural commodities.

"The world will soon wake up to the reality that everyone is broke and can collect nothing from the bankrupt, who are owed unlimited amounts by the insolvent, who are attempting to make late payments on a bank holiday in the wrong country, with an unacceptable currency, against defaulted collateral, of which nobody is sure who holds title."

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

Food prices are terrible. Either the prices keep increasing or the package size keeps decreasing.

Meat is set to skyrocket with the impact of the droughts on animal feed costs for farmers.

I just finished increasing the size of two of my vegetable beds and am considering building another.

If people can, they need to garden & teach neighbors to do so as well. Many of my neighbors are increasing their gardens & the others are starting to ask us for advice on how to build their own.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH:
Alan Isaacman
The People Vs Larry Flynt
"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."

 Quoting: Lady Jane Smith


Yes yes yes yes. We're also expanding our garden beds for next year. We get a harsh winter so no winter planting for us. We just preserve what we grew to stockpile for the winter. We're also turning the previously neglected front yard flower beds (flowers are just not my thing..) into veggie/fruit gardens. What is nice about the community I live in.. very few people don't have a garden in their yard. The farmer's market here is extremely cheap to help fill a few gaps too.

Just another suggestion for you. If you don't already have them, look into water barrels. I hate watering my garden with city water. I can't control what is in the rain really, but I know there's all kinds of crap in the city's water plus its expensive.

We have done the same and we even have a community garden that all the kids tend to with the help of other adults. I live in a small community in Michigan and a lot of people are struggling but instead of social unrest I think it has drawn the community closer together. Furthermore, the food shortages of the Great Depression didn't end in complete social chaos instead like our small community it brought people closer together.

I think you have a point. The community I'm in now is already heavy on gardening. The one my husband and I moved from wasn't. We visited family there not too long ago and found that now when the city tears down a condemned house they're building community plots in their place. It seemed like most neighborhoods had them and they were all planted and well tended. It was nice to see. Previously all they had was a very large community plot where they could rent space and the new plots are free.

We don't drink cows milk, every last one of us in this house is lactose intolerant. I want to say that last time I happened to catch a glimpse a gallon of milk was almost $3 here if you bought a brand name and about $2 if you bought the store brand. We buy Almond milk from time to time though and that runs about 1.97 a carton. That's the stuff I usually have coupons for and stock up on a bit when its on sale. I make all of our bread but flour has gotten a bit ridiculous. If I don't catch it on sale (when I'm not stocked up, I usually am through a local mill) I'll spend about three bucks for a 5lb bag. Yeast has gotten stupid expensive too. One of those tiny jars of yeast is about $7.00. I refuse to buy that. I bought a 2 lb pack of yeast through a local bakery for about $10 about six months ago. Barely put a dent in it despite using it all the time.

I get most of my stocking up done through newspaper sales too. :). Our local store puts out some pretty awesome flyers if you check the mail and bother to look. Knowing their policies helps too. I know my store will take one store coupon and one manufacturer's coupon. Makes for some really cheap stuff and you'd be surprised to find that many fresh food companies do put out coupons.

I like the Almond milk too
