America Has Too Much Milk Or Something

You ever read something on the Internet and just go “oh, f**k off”? This is one of those, from the fevered moonbat mind of Meredith Lee at Politico

Got milk? Yes, actually, U.S. has too much.

Yes, food prices are up. But no, average U.S. milk prices aren’t skyrocketing — they’ve basically stayed the same since January.

It’s at a 3 year high, rising 26%. I notice it, because I buy regular milk and chocolate milk at the grocery store a lot.

That’s because the U.S. overall has an oversupply of milk, and it’s gotten worse over the past few decades as smaller farms have shuttered and larger farms have bought up their livestock and increasingly dominated the industry.

It’s been a problem that policymakers have been struggling to confront for years. And it’s not clear that Washington, D.C., will address this issue because other food prices have been rising much more as a result of the pandemic-induced supply chain breakdowns. The Biden administration has pledged to address antitrust issues in industries ranging from technology to meatpacking. But so far, the dairy sector hasn’t been the focus yet in part because consumers aren’t seeing significantly higher prices as a result of consolidation.

Why would lawmakers address it? What business is it of government, particularly the federal government?

CNN report this week triggered a brief social media spectacle after it featured a family saying retail milk prices skyrocketed (up 79 cents a gallon over just a few weeks for that couple in the Dallas area who were interviewed and said their family consumes 12 gallons a week). In fact, the average price of milk nationally has largely stayed steady throughout the year, according to the Agriculture Department.

This is all because liberals when pure Barking Moonbat on that family. And rising consumer pricing is easy to illustrate with food products like milk, which most are familiar with. Especially parents.

Overall, the U.S. has been making more milk than it can use. “The availability and supply of milk is not a concern, it’s a concern about moving that milk to where it’s needed,” said Matt Herrick of the International Dairy Foods Association, one of the largest dairy lobby groups in the U.S.

In other words, the broken supply chain under Let’s Go Brandon. And speaking of supply chains

So, a complete backfire. Anyhow, is it any wonder that the Liberal Elites deride the concerns of average Americans? Here’s one more

    William Teach: Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm laughs when asked about Biden’s plans to bring gas prices down.

    The US leverage on crude prices depends on our bribing Saudi Arabia with military equipment and looking the other way when they commit Salafism atrocities.

    William Teach doesn’t understand that crude oil is a global commodity largely controlled by OPEC. Note too that the largest OPEC producers have a much lower extraction cost per barrel than most other producers (including the US and Canada). US and Canada crude costs over twice as much to extract as middle eastern crude.

    OPEC currently has 13 members, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Libya, the United Arab Emirates, Algeria, Nigeria, Gabon, Angola, Equatorial Guinea and Congo. Other oil producers, especially Russia, cooperate with OPEC at times (OPEC+).

    OPEC+ controls more than 50% of oil extraction and 90% of proven oil reserves. Market forces (demand) also play a significant role in prices as does refinery capacity at any given time.

    Funny that Granholm mentions “magic wand” (ala Barky) and that OPEC controls the global market on oil pricing.
    Under the Trump administration by encouraging US oil production the country became a net exporter on the world market.

    Of course one of the first things Brandon accomplished was to shut down the approved XL pipeline costing 11,000 American Jobs and shutting down the flow of oil to US refineries.
    Then to top it off, Brandon in all his wisdom, stopped all oil exploration on federal lands costing more American jobs.

    And why is this chick laughing? Wouldn’t have anything to do with her stockholdings in an electric bus company, would it?

    Bwaha! Lolgf

    Because we have an American left which believe that everything is the government’s business! Just because something isn’t broken doesn’t mean that there aren’t people who want to fix it.
