One Statement Says It All

i won’t even provide narrative to set this up. the statement speaks for itself:

“In the U.S., I don’t see food shortages,” U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson told Reuters in an interview. “We have plenty of food in the U.S. The price of food has gone up, but again that won’t be as significant for the average American as gasoline.”

if you can’t see the BOLD, albeit fine print in between the lines, he is effectively saying that our national priorities will continue to focus on guns vs. butter; big money making engines vs. humanitarian and societal needs. it shames and concerns me and i am not even a liberal [no offense].

    so sad, and even more sad that it is so true that our government’s (especially under the Bush adminstration) priority is that of warfare and securing as much oil as we possibly can, protecting big business, and screwing those who are trying to live the “american” dream.

    with that said, why is gasoline prices so high? isn’t that why we went to war with iraq (one of the few lame reasons) and destroyed the lives of so many iraqis?
