    Enough is Enough. Gas prices

    Sometimes the government has to help look at what they did for the beef business in the last year or so. Also look how they have helped the grain farmers with price supports hasnt that worked well. So if they have to tell us what kind of cars to drive I guess they know best.

    I wonder just how many vehicles on the road, at this minute, are doing closer to 10 then `17mpg. We have to get that to at least 25 if not 30 or get ready for $3 a gallon.

    What's the real story on Oregon ranchers and midd schoolers?

    Before this is all over were all going to look like a bunch of Idiots. I have never seen an industry with so many problems as this beef thing has. It never ends. Next it will be why $1.50 600 pound feeders are not making any money when the heavy market goes to 68. Eat more pork,no Mad Cow.
