Return of the Bread Lines?

The bread lines of the Great Depression may be making a strong come back in the near future. While we continue to spend $6-8 billion a month on the Iraq war, gas prices continue to rocket upwards, rice and grain prices are following suit, and the dollar is falling like a rock, some areas of the country have already had to resort to food rationing.

“Where’s the rice?” an engineer from Palo Alto, Calif., Yajun Liu, said. “You should be able to buy something like rice. This is ridiculous.”

An employee at the Costco store in Queens said there were no restrictions on rice buying, but limits were being imposed on purchases of oil and flour.

“It’s sporadic. It’s not every store, but it’s becoming more commonplace,” the editor of, James Rawles, said. “The number of reports I’ve been getting from readers who have seen signs posted with limits has increased almost exponentially, I’d say in the last three to five weeks.”

At what point will the Bush administration and John "manchurian" McCandidate admit that we can't afford to spend trillions of dollars on a wars for other countries' interests?

Revelation 6:6

"Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, 'A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!'"
