It is interesting that we have become so dependant on the system that the very act of attempting to destroy the system in effect destroys part of us.
didn't have your first coffee this morning did ya?
Perhaps with the climate changing we will soon be able to grow coffee in the United States. Something to think about.
So go long Starbucks?
Aparently you didn't get the message that the climate is chanign in the other direction, uh oh you didn't notice ALL that Snow did you ?
I don't really belief all that nonsense.
Here in Belgium the promised that the climate would warm up just like at the cote d'azur.
I've bought slippers and shorts to be prepared for it...
and all we got was rain...
Obviously the proper micro-climates must be found. But you might be right; it seems these weather events are the oscillations of a complex system (planetary climate) approaching instability and searching for the "tipping point". So it would be quite some time before the new weather system reaches a stable pattern, and by then many of us are likely to be long gone.
Brilliant, astute statement.
Yes, it was wonderfully pithy... I have a bit more hope, but it is being tested to the breaking with every passing day.
"We've got enough to keep us going for a week, but God knows after that," sure let 'God' handle that after all he's all powerful so a little manna from heaven is no big deal for him ;)
Wait, you mean if religious zealots have a revolution, and don't worry about production then stuff doesn't materialize to consume? Dude, like NO WAY!
If people from "outside" are to send them food, what do they promise to give the outsiders in return? Will they promise not to be a Muslim Brotherhood, islamist, jihadist bunch of psychopaths? Could we trust such a promise? Will they even bother to make such a promise?
These are not the muzzies you are looking for. lulz

Joseph Hill, Culture
wasn't that a hippie from Jamaica?
He was a good man who man who experienced and saw all the wrongs of the world that that this board continually rails against.
Maybe they start eating each other?
they can always dig a hole and drink some crude. light, sweet crude. yum.
And so it goes..... Who is next? Vietnam? Thailand? Saudi?Oman? Italy? Greece? It will be a mess. I ordered another 500 rounds of .223 to shoot those "rabbits" that might try to steal from my garden
That is a big "rabbit"!
if I had to hazard a guess, I'd say that even though all this news makes it look like a world spinning out of control, I'd say the "planners" still have the puppy pretty much under control. "Supply" is what they control, of pretty much everything. See some ADM execs licking their chops? See the Monsanto, GMO crowd licking theirs?
Oil price is firmly in their hands. The biggest lever of all really. f oilcos were to eat losses for a couple of years to allow a smooth post-oil transition..... hahahahahahahahahahah, sorry, I really started laughing once the thought formed. Never going to happen.
And we eat Oil food now-a-days. 40% of the fruits in my local grocery are imported. And this is India, an agrarian nation.
Shortages create war and war creats shortages. Such is how it is.
I would be able to survive on snacks. I did it 4 years when I was in college!
Way to go Bernanke.
LET THEM EAT PORKMEAT!!
Pork products! Love the stuff and have some great recipies that could be included in the relief supplies.
If anyone in the Obama Administration takes part in the planning, the relief will most certainly be pork and Ipods loaded up with his speeches. Oh, and a big red plastic button that was supposed to say "Democracy", but actually reads, "Allah sucks".
No doubt the President will be airdropping food to the Libyans by the middle of March..paid for by the American taxpayer who has a bottomless pocket.
B-52 loaded with Coca Cola cans will be airdropped.
better wear a helmet....
How much food do the mercs in tripoli have i wonder?
Well let's just print some money and save the entire middle east while we're at it.
Do you realize how much paper pulp costs these days?!
Let's try it first with a QE food relief program, otherwise we might risk of creating inflation which could make things worse.
We wouldn't want that on our concience now do we?
Bread, vegetables. Prices have gone up by 75 percent.
Bread, vegetables. Prices have gone up by 75 percent.
I was going to check if the Central Bank of Libya was contemplating a rate rise to stem inflation, but their web site seems to be down.
They're just auditing the gold reserves. Back in a few.
this is "oil rich Libya" correct? And "this is the oil rich region of Libya"? yes, yes?
Lord Bernanke can turn off the revolution in 15 minutes, but until then take his QE money and speculate in LEAD.......
When reading the comments/replies one wonders if the readers really knew anything about the subject before last week, and if not which is most likely how much have they learned since ? not much.
mow all this misery with naked assholes of the rotary machine gun until the barrel melts. Or are we not more than Anglo-Saxons?
How hard is it to put a C-130 on the gorund with some food and M-16's??? for the people... and another filled with ammo to use on Go-Daffy!
How hard is it to air drop out of C-130's to the hard to reach places? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VkW0xCbolk answer: NOT FUCKING HARD AT ALL!
Between the Mexican frost, oil prices, and QEeeees, tomatoes prices have risen north of $3/lb.
So now I can officially turn shit into gold:
Step 1: Shit in a hole in my back yard.
Step 2: Till until the shit and soil are evenly mixed.
Step 3: Plant tomato seeds and watch em grow.
Step 4: Sell my "organic" tomatoes for $5 / lb.
Step 5: Buy an ounce of gold with every 300 lbs. of tomatoes sold.
problem is that thoose countries is discoordinated and dollars dependers,once would they form block like NATO or something then united states would be at mersy of multipal strike from different distinations,i think americans playing very silly and brutal game which will pay off at whole world hating and ignoring their items,do they produce anything really excluding weapons and drug trafficking?The policies of thoos who think they can put world as one big jail would be punished hard or all of you early or later would be prisoners,so called mouses in big USA pharma ville making on you vaccinas.Just about food,come back to hystory of russian Revolution,it was brigadas (groups of people with special revolutionary rights called "special comission") which could kill any one on the street or confiscate in his house in name of the October Revolution,Jews had sponsored Lenin,Lenin pissed off to them claiming his rights and trying to cut off their demand,finally it was at collapse,then Lenin sold huge territories of future Russia to the germans,they sponsored russian Lenin Revolution,so,thoose special commitie people V-CH-K or later GK-CH-K was chasing houses looking for any food supply,any making fight against was killed,but russians of fallen russia still had fight back,however the sytem was so corrupted that really people was tied off,so,one jew who was not religiouse(russia made 300+ years to make jews off religion,which suppose not participate into any other nations revolutions or disorders,but pray to God to safe world from rap),so,his name Leo Trozkij,man for whom most revolutionist was ready to go with closed eyes,later Stalling uzurpted power from Lenin and Trozkij had run into USA,after second attemp sent by Stalin killer he was killed,the funny thing that many hi hi GK-CH-K guys sent with special mission to support revolutions in other countries never came back with their gold and silver backed money given for thoose revolutions,same process we watch now,the only difference,the usa GK-CH-k agents like Mubarek,Hussein,others are subject to american taxes by expropriation of their holdings in places where they was collected and "safe",riots may come into us streets in time when elite of financial world expecting it at least

YRC Worldwide Inc. fell the most since September after the money-losing trucking company, some of its lenders and union employees agreed to a restructuring that may avoid bankruptcy by diluting shareholders.
YRC tumbled 74 cents, or 22 percent, to $2.68 at 4 p.m. in Nasdaq Stock Market composite trading, the biggest decline since September 30. The non-binding agreement improves YRC’s capital, boosts liquidity and creates “substantial dilution of existing equity holders,” the Overland Park, Kansas-based company said in a statement.
YRC, which has posted annual losses since 2006, took on debt last decade when it expanded through acquisitions. YRC, then called Yellow Corp., bought Roadway Corp. in 2003, and acquired USF Corp. in 2005. The company has suffered as lower- priced entrants took market share during the U.S. recession when demand for freight-hauling services declined.
“The success and viability of YRC is greatly enhanced by this announcement today,” John Lamar, YRC’s chief restructuring officer and lead director, said in an interview. Lamar declined to say how much capital YRC is raising or how many shares it plans to issue.
YRC said in the statement than it can’t provide assurances that it won’t be required "to implement the restructuring under the supervision of a bankruptcy court," which may change the terms.
The deal will provide “meaningful” equity ownership in the company for employees belonging to the Teamsters, the union said in a separate statement.
YRC said it expects to close the transaction by July and will further extend a deferral of interest and fees until then. In December, YRC had agreed to extend the payments until the middle of May. The December agreement had required YRC to agree to recapitalize its balance sheet by today. The company also said its lenders waived its first-quarter profit covenant.
