It’s going to be such sweet irony watching The Great Goreacle’s Glow Bull Worming Ponzi Scheme™ being crushed under the boot of Turd Word® Revolucións!™ over the price of everything from tequila to tamales.

(Note: All emphasis mine—B.)

EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Each Christmas season since 1984 Gilberto Carrillo’s family has wrapped thousands of Mexican tamales by hand, but this year he must charge customers more than ever for the tasty holiday favorite.

It’s a routine that keeps his family business, Tamales Lupita, and other tamale shops very busy this time of year. But rising expenses have forced him and others throughout the Southwest to pass on the cost to customers.

Carrillo said his store charged $11 per dozen last year and now it’s at $12 per dozen.

“Everything is going up, meat, corn husks, minimum wage, everything,” he said as a line of customers filled his shop.

Why are the prices going up so quickly? Hell, even these non-college-educated, working class José six-packs have that figured out.

Tamale makers blame the jump in corn prices on the country’s efforts to use corn for ethanol-enfused fuel. Corn prices have risen about 55 percent since 2003, along with the price of petroleum products needed to ship and package it, according to the Texas Department of Agriculture.

Welcome to the future, where Gaia-worshiping fuckheads have duped the gullible masses into turning their food crops into fuel sources and left hundreds, if not thousands, of years worth of non-food fuel sources underground and not built any nukular power plants.

It’s A Wonderful Life.

F.E.T.E.

    Amazing, isn’t it? Wheat is hitting $10.00 a bushel, corn is going out of sight, the Brazilian rain forests are being clearcut to grow food in VERY marginal soil, since the productive food growing areas have been put into sugar cane for making Ethanol fuel.

    Talk about unintended consequences!

    The most amazing thing in this to me is not that this business owner has figured out what this bullshit scam is doing to him and his customers, but that the Ass-Showing Pricks actually let it get into a story.

    the price of corn is not related to real causes, we (U.S) have over 30 million acres of farm land “banked”. this means the farmers are being paid market price to not grow crops.if put back into production we could produce so much corn the price would drop to pennies a bushel. the left over mash is a better feed for cattle than the corn itself and would drive down the cost of meat. the price of oil would drop because of lowered demand and anwar would be a waste of time. the greenies will not push for this to happen because they wouldn’t have anything to whine about. the politicians will not push it because it would bring prosperity to america and leave them with fewer poor people to screw over. the american people will not demand it because the MSM will not tell them how badly they are being screwed by the liberal politicians…. ahhh thats better, was it good for you too? time to fire up a camel and take a nap.

    we could produce so much corn the price would drop to pennies a bushel.

    At which point farmers would stop planting corn and plant more profitable crops, and we’d basically be back where we started (unless you FORCE farmers to grow corn. Which I don’t see happening. In this country). There are always consequences, usually unintended, almost always bad, to any government meddling with natural market forces.

    Hey Hardclimber,
    I’m with you on the pipes and cigars (BTW, I also make pipes if anyone’s interested /shameless plug). However, I heard that Cubans are not living up to their rep and the Nicaraguans and some others are actually better than current production Cubanos. Your take?
    Anyway, back on topic, a lot of the land currently banked is banked under the Sodbuster and Swampbuster provisions of the current Farm Bill because it’s marginal to begin with. It’s also more susceptible to erosion and such when used for crop production. Putting it back into production would lead to more of those unintended consequences. Now my understanding is that biodiesel rather than ethanol may be more viable as there are other seed crops which can be used rather than soy or peanuts (both food crops). There was an article on the costs of biofuels in the Dec. 17 issue of Chemical and Engineering News, but I haven’t read it yet.
    I guess I should.

    In 2006 dog food killed some 23 dogs nationwide. The cause was aflatoxin in the corn processed by Diamond Pet Foods.

    Now read this warning from the Food and Drug Administration.

    ” ethanol production may lead to increased demand for these agricultural products, which in turn may lead to the increased use of corn and grain sorghum contaminated with aflatoxins in ethanol production. Researchers have shown that aflatoxins are not destroyed during ethanol production, but are concentrated in the distillers grains by-products where they may be present at levels as high as three times that found in the corn or grain sorghum starting materials. Thus, distillers grains contaminated with aflatoxins can pose risks to the safety of animals consuming these products and with the widespread use of distillers grains in dairy cattle feed there is also a potential human safety concern due to aflatoxin residues in the milk. “

    Nevermind the simple economics of said Christmas Tamales induced by ethanol production.

    The economics are so simple that anyone above the mental age of 6 would understand. It uses (and thus costs) approximately 80% of the energy to produce a gallon of ethanol that the produced ethanol in turn, yields as energy, assuming 100% thermal efficiency (which btw, that is physically impossible in this space-time continuum). Yes the U.S. does in fact bank land and pay farmers not to produce certain crops. That program was initially started to ‘adjust’ the cost of wheat on the world market and spread like cancer to other crops. Additionally there was concern that after the prices increased US farmers would overproduce land and deplete vital nutrients, that would in turn INCREASE production costs further.

    Put simply, even if we used all available arable land for biofuel production, unless and until we can spend a LOT less than $8 to produce $10 of energy, ethanol is a non-starter.

    Petroleum costs on average $4-$10/barrel at the well head. (Feel free to correct this figure, pups).

    Do the math. We need to drill every frackin’ square inch of US soil on and offshore, while we build a shit-load of these Advanced Pressurized Water Reactor systems.

    And yes Virginia, the nuclear waste issue is solved quiet nicely already. No need to exert yourself dragging out that particular straw-man.

    And yet more evidence of the Law of Unintended Consequences, conveniently being ignored by the Greenies:

    Corn farm runoff leads to trouble in Gulf
    By Henry C. Jackson
    ASSOCIATED PRESS

    JEFFERSON, Iowa — Because of rising demand for ethanol, American farmers are growing more corn than they have at any time since World War II, and sea life in the Gulf of Mexico is paying the price.

    The nation’s corn crop is fertilized with millions of pounds of nitrogen-based fertilizer. When that nitrogen runs off fields in Corn Belt states, it makes its way to the Mississippi River and eventually pours into the Gulf, where it contributes to a growing “dead zone” — a 7,900-square-mile patch so depleted of oxygen that fish, crabs and shrimp suffocate.

    From the local ethanol plants website.
    http://www.wwrecethanol.com/ethanol/energy.html

    Doesn’t it take more energy to produce ethanol than you get out of it?

    * “It takes more energy to produce ethanol than what energy it contains” – David Pimentel, ecology professor, Cornell University. With all due respect to the professor – whose primary specialty is entomology, the study of insects – government and private research scientists have come to the opposite conclusion.

    That’s nice, tell that to the people who are saying that we are all doomed from global warming but arn’t certified climatologists. Yeah, its apples and oranges, but the principle is the same.

    * The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) found that corn ethanol is energy efficient, with an energy ratio of 1.34. This means that for every 1 Btu used to produce ethanol, there is a 34% energy gain over and above the original energy investment.

    Keep in mind thats just the cost to MAKE the ethanol.

    * However, the same cannot be said for fossil fuels. In fact, ethanol’s energy balance far exceeds that for fossil fuel. For every 1 Btu used to produce fossil fuel, there is a 20% energy loss.

    Right, if that were true, then why are we using fossil fuels in the first place?

    * USDA researchers detailed several flaws in Professor Pimentel’s study:
    o Used a low national average for corn yields
    o Used a high estimate for processing
    o Assumed a low conversion rate (i.e. 2.5 gallons/bushel)
    o Did not credit the energy in co-products
    o Included energy value embodied in farm machinery & plants
    o Assumed high nitrogen and phosphorus application rates

    Considering that at the time corn prices were probably low, processing of the corn was not as efficient, and the conversion rate WAS low at the time.

    WTF do co-products have to do with the making of the ethanol?
    Umm, you HAVE to include the energy that was used to plant and harvest the corn.
    Considering that some of the local farmers have started spreading manure on their fields ALREADY I would say the professors assumption is correct.

    * Today, ethanol facilities are extremely energy efficient. Gary Kramer, president and general manager of Badger State Ethanol, in Monroe, Wisconsin, explains, “You always hear the comment that it takes more energy to make a gallon of ethanol than you get out of it. Back in the late 1970s that was a true statement. It took 120,000 BTUs to make one gallon of ethanol that had 80,000 BTUs. The reality today is that we can make that same gallon of ethanol with just 32,000 BTUs.

    Note: That is still just the cost of distilling the alcohol.

    * Note that these manufacturing figures do not account for the total BTU requirement for other production factors, such as growing and transporting grain.

    They had to include this or get sued. The facility had semi-truck loads of grain arriving every ten minutes or so when I took a tour of it. Trucks actually had to line up to dump their loads and then pulled out… empty. None of the distillers grain was being picked up (that day anyway).

    I personally don’t believe that ethanol is going to do much other than make a few people alot of money from having the government passing laws that require the use of ethanol in fuel. The head of the plant pretty much admitted that if it wasn’t for a subsidy the place would never have been built in the first place.

    Just how bad can the crazyness get?


    Heres the UK circling the drain

    “..Coal-fired power stations, airport expansions and new road schemes could all be put on hold following a decision by Gordon Brown that ministers must in future take account of the true economic cost of climate change damage.

    Ministers have been instructed to factor into their calculations a notional “carbon price” when making all policy and investment decisions covering transport, construction, housing, planning and energy…”

    and

    “..The climate change minister, Phil Woolas, said: “This will have huge implications for [the] government. If for instance a new power station is due to cost £1bn, but it will add £200m worth of carbon emissions, we will decide that the cost of the power station is £1.2bn, even though its cash price is £1bn. We are creating a new currency.”

    In theory the carbon price will create a bias against roads and carbon-emitting coal stations and make new “zero carbon” building regulations appear more economic..”

    Translated means, we will tax you for your own good. We will build in a 20% inneficency buffer for every muddle headed project we want to squander your money on. FFS they squeal at businesses making 5-10% margins of profit then go and stick a 20%margin on everything.

    My $0.02 on Ethanol…

    My Pappy-in-law’s Caravan is Flex-Fuel capable. He is employed by SEMA (MO) and is H.I.C. (Honcho In Charge) of a large chunk of Missouri when Mother Nature is a mother and FUBAR’s an area. Between ice storms, tornadoes and floods, he travels a lot.

    He started running on Ethanol ’cause the At The Pump price was lower than straight gas. Turns out that he had to burn more Ethanol to travel the same distance as he would on regular petrol, the end cost was more. He now runs on Regular Unleaded.

    MoMinuteMan the cost of alcohol at present is 3/4 that of gasoline (materials and cost to make) the milage is 2/3 that of gas, a losing proposition if we had to buy our corn from the arabs. since all of the money for the alcohol stays in the U.S. it is a boost to our economy. it should not affect the price of the corn we eat because the best corn for making alcohol is field corn, the same as animal feed. corn isn’t even the best source for alcohol, it can be made from sugar from cane, beets or sorghum. even from waste vegatation like potato greens and cornstalks. the main point is we keep our money here a let the arabs eat their oil.

    Wrong. It doesn’t matter what kind of corn is “best” for making alcohol. Any and all corn that would otherwise have been used as some other product, be it feed for animals or Orville Dead ‘n’ Bakin’s™ popcorn, will cost more because of the overwhelming demand for any and all forms of corn for making ethanol, due to nanny state edicts handed down by our Intellectual Betters™. If you didn’t notice the main point of the post, because of the Great Global Worming Ponzi™, THE PRICE OF CORN IS GOING THROUGH THE ROOF, with the accompanying ripple effect throughout the food supply chain, and the edicts haven’t even put into effect yet.

    the main point is we keep our money here a let the arabs eat their oil.

    We’ve got plenty of oil of our own and an unlimited supply of hydrogen, in the form of that mysterious substance called “water”, that could be released quite handily, if we’d put the resources into building nukular reactors like we do to build professional sports arenas. Most of our oil doesn’t even come from the Middle East. If we’d utilize our own sources, we could tell them to suck sand, eat shit & die.

    All we need to do is follow the lead of (I can’t believe I’m saying this) *spit* Fwance *spit* and tell the Eco-Fascists to go fuck themselves and sit on a narwhal tusk.

    Nicaragua has been coming along nicely in the cigar department, but I still enjoy a cuban cigar for the simple fact that they kept their method of hand-making and hand-finishing their cigars. And, like so many other things, price is also a consideration. No need to spend $75.00 per cigar if a $15.00 cigar rewards you the same… I have nicaraguans who were cheaper to buy, but the quality of finish was inconsistant. I also have a vendor here in town (Moncton NB) who has an amazing selection of cigars ranging from $5.00 to $115.oo per… Needless to say, this humble retired jock doesn’t buy the top-priced… But, once in a while, I’ll indulge in the $15.00 to $25.00 dollar range. My Missus also bought me a superb French Brandy that is over a 100 years old. A natural match, brandy and cigars. Life is good. And yes, I DO share the old brandy, just don’t expect refills… :em93:

    Now, we do have bio-fuels here in Canada, specifically bio-diesel, which seems to be taking on. It is a bit cheaper than regular diesel (about 3 cents a litre) however, I do not have any figures on actual production costs for said bioD. Ethanol based has not yet made a bit start here in Brunswick at least, but there’s a lot of talk from everyday folks about it. Now, remember the propane burning cars of the mid-70’s? Our government bought a fleet of “staff vehicles” propane powered. What a disaster that was. We’d use a mid-size Plymouth powered by propane to go to a conference from Ottawa to Montreal (about 1 1/2 hours drive) and had to re-fuel before the return journey, having 1/4 of a tank left. The regular fuel Plymouth used to be able to do the return trip on 3/4 of a tank of gas… Also, the propane vehicles were near impossible to start in the cold of winter, required a LOT more maintenance, and proved to be a nuisance more than anything else. Is ethanol going the same route? Perhaps, or at least until a better, more economical way of extracting it is found.

    […] Clearly a no-brainer choice. […]

    And a merry Holiday Season to you, my Canadian friend!

    Heart Coggle Wormening? That’s got to be every bit as bad for Mother Earth as Goremoron’s Glowbull Wormening! You’re a naughty, naughty boy for allowing your body to increase its’ carbon footyprint by an increase in coggle heat that made you hypermetabolic, thus increasing your CO2 emissions! As for me, I made it a POINT to drastically increase my footyprint! I let my father-in-law start his grossly oversized grill so we could both cook good barbecue and bitch slap mother Gaia at the same time. Nice man, my FIL, but he couldn’t start a fire with a nuclear bomb. The billowing smoke during the 2 hour pre-ignition stage was enough to fibrillate the hearts in scores of greenie tree-fuckers. Well, we killed a shitload of Oak firewood over the next 12 hours or so, grilling turkey, sausage, chicken boobs, hotdogs and a world-class Texas Chili! Yessir, I was sporting a size 16 carbon footyprint today! I really reek of carbonized oak, and I intend to shake my clothes outside in order to make sure as much carbon gets back into the atmosphere… where it belongs.

    Week after next - a huge pile of dead trees will become a flaming offering to the deity known as Fajita, the Anti-Gore, Goddess of Greenhouse gases and Outdoor Grilling with Charcoal. You’ll be able to see it from space AND roast marshmallows at 500 meters!
