Forests instead of Food....D'OH!

Do'h it seems we have imbeciles running the show. I know President Obama was busy collecting the Nobel Peace Prize he didn't earn and doesn't deserve but Forests instead of Food? 

"Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has ordered his staff to revise a computerized forecasting model that showed that climate legislation supported by President Obama would make planting trees more lucrative than producing food.

According to the economic model used by the department and the Environmental Protection Agency, the legislation would give landowners incentives to convert up to 59 million acres of farmland into forests over the next 40 years. The reason: Trees clean the air of heat-trapping gases better than farming does.
Mr. Vilsack, in a little-noticed statement issued with the report earlier this month, said the department's forecasts "have caused considerable concern" among farmers and ranchers."
Double D'oh ya think given that we are on the verge of catastrophe right here and in many parts of the World they are already starving! I would send him this Food Crisis for Dummies but I'm thinking either him and his advisors are complete imbeciles or this is all part of the plan to destroy America and bring our middle class in line to share the misery and either way stupidity or plan we will all suffer.
More and more people are losing their homes..

For Gus Faucher, the director of macroeconomics for Moody's, the huge number of foreclosures that remain in the pipeline is the big problem.
Moody's upped its estimate of defaults recently because of shortcomings of the government-led mortgage modification programs. Trial workouts are not being made permanent and completed modifications are redefaulting at high rates.
"There are going to be fewer [successful] modifications than we thought," said Faucher."
Can you envision now the Social Unrest that many have been predicting when people have no homes, no jobs and little food?  When people have nothing left to lose they lose it! Heaven help us I have been preparing myself for the possibility of de-civilization and roaming herds of people but I fear those in urban areas with no means of escape well.....
