After Obama took office, people worried about there being a food shortage. Obama said there wouldn't be. People began growing their own vegetables in their back yards. When asked to comment on this, Obama said those vegetable that people were growing would be considered taxable income and they would have to pay taxes on them.
2 or 3 months ago, at the QFC where I grocery shop, there was a notice posted at the entrance that many items may not be available for a few days. I was surprised at how many empty shelves their were. The milk freezer was half empty. Three days later, it WAS empty. No food shortage, huh? Tell me another one.
