America’s Dairy Farmers Dump 43 Million Gallons of Excess Milk:

(Kelsey Gee) Farmers in the U.S. are pouring out tens of millions of gallons of excess milk, amid a massive glut that has slashed prices and has filled warehouses with cheese.

More than 43 million gallons’ worth of milk were dumped in fields, manure lagoons or animal feed, or have been lost on truck routes or discarded at plants in the first eight months of 2016, according to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. That is enough milk to fill 66 Olympic swimming pools, and the most wasted in at least 16 years of data requested by The Wall Street Journal.

Desperate producers are working to find new uses for the excess, like getting more milk into school lunches, and in revamped tacos and Egg McMuffins. But many can’t even afford to transport raw milk to market at current prices, which have plunged 36% on average since prices hit records in 2014.

My Commentary: No free market to speak of in America… Just a crony capitalist system of government regulations, government-induced waste, government price-fixing, and many going without food, as a result… But, obviously, the eventual solution to all of this corruption is… *drum roll* You guessed it! Infinitely more government, in the form of socialism!

(Tyler O’neil) South Carolina Congressman Mick Mulvaney attacked the rampant government corruption involved in the high pricing of EpiPen Auto-Injectors at a House panel on Wednesday, telling the woman at the heart of the controversy, “You’ve asked for it.”

“You’ve been in these hallways to ask us to make people buy your stuff,” Mulvaney declared, tearing into Heather Bresch, the CEO of pharmaceutical giant Mylan, the company behind the EpiPen. “I think there’s laws in eleven states now that require schools to have epinephrin in some immediately deliverable fashion. You’ve lobbied us to make the taxpayer buy your stuff.”

My Commentary: Government-established and protected monopolies are for the “common good,” you selfish fuck-face… Now, shut up, and pay your “fair share” of taxes for these helpful “services,” or you’ll be abducted and thrown in a cage!

Crony Capitalism, Explained

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “AnarchyBall,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"This just in. Free market capitalism does not include: a government monopoly over the money supply, corporate bailouts and subsidies, taxation, redistribution of wealth, wage & price setting, protectionism, tariffs, and regulations."

My Commentary: The phrase you’re looking for is “crony capitalism”…

But, Without Government, Who Would Rig Public Services to Rely Upon Crony Contracts?

(Jiquanda JohnsonCity officials are asking residents to not sit trash out until further notice.

Flint Mayor Karen Weaver’s office issued a July 30 statement announcing that the city no longer has trash service and garbage will not be picked up starting Monday.

My Commentary: “But, without government, who would rig the contract for a crony, have her cronyism overridden by an 8-1 vote, ignore the council vote in favor of her crony, and then suspend garbage collection when a judge said they need to wait until Tuesday to figure this out?”

American Government Orders Hundreds of Millions of Pounds of Food to be Destroyed Every Year

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following captioned photo, being shared by an acquaintance from here, and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

Santucci Farm – Traverse City Cherries: These cherries are beautiful! But, we have to dump 14% of our tart cherry crop on the ground to rot. Why? So we can allow the import of 200 million pounds of cherries from overseas! It just doesn’t seem right. What do you think? Please share this on your Facebook page🍒🍒🍒. Just to let everyone know we are not allowed to donate or in any way use diverted cherries. I have people who would buy them if I could sell them. Also these are tart cherries with a very short shelf life

And, during the “Great Depression,” the State ordered hundreds of millions of pounds of food be destroyed to artificially boost market prices, even while millions of Americans spent years starving.

THIS is the Nature of the State…
