I don't care if it costs $10 per package, I need my bacon fix for weekend breakfast

Yeah, it's quite disturbing to see these reports of how the drought is going to make so many things so incredibly much more expensive...

Of course, Obama could just repeal the Ethanol mandate, but then gas goes up. (It should go up by about 35 cents, but I guarantee the oil companies will manage to turn that into a buck fifty price hike.)

The BETTER thing to do would be to invest the hundreds of billions of dollars required to create proper irrigation systems for the corn belt, but doing the better and long-term thing always seems to elude the US, for some reason. (Keep putting those power poles above the ground, fellas! It's not as if tornadoes and thunderstorms take them out at a rate of a few dozen a day!)
