New Year

First off, Happy New Year. May 2010 be better.

I regularly look a a financial blog "Calculated Risk." Many of the vast numbers who look and comment on the blog are really well informed.

The above graph, in which 4518 people participated, does not bode well for the economy in general.

Dairy farmers took, I feel, a needless hit in 2009. If 2010 proceeds as the above graph assumes, the conditions remain to take further from the farmer's hide.

There is no need to point out Senator Bernie Sanders was an exception to DC normality.

The big push will be for the next farm bill. The usual suspects are already at the table.


  1. I guess my question is how do we replace the "shared brain (dead) zombies" at the table before the next farm bill?

    Big cooperatives, big processors, and the farmer's best friend Jerry Kozac I presume?
    By the way, where's that advisory committee that sent in nominations by 9/28? 3 months and no committee yet? Cmon, the suspense is killing me. (or not)
