Cold Storage of Dairy Products
“We estimate the wisdom of nations by seeing
what they did with their surplus capital.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
What happens to unwanted surplus dairy products?
The United States Department of Agriculture
purchases the overproduction so that dairymen
get by with a little help from their friends…
and then USDA stores butter and cheese in privately
Who pays the $2 million monthly rent for cave use?
American taxpayers. who owns the caves and collects
the absurd rental fees? Decipher this riddle and find
out who really runs America.
While the price of butter continues to soar, there
remains 199.6 million pounds of butter stored for
the day after the Apocalypse.. .or some other
brilliant use. I’ve yet to figure it out.
Meanwhile, the inflated price of butter soared
7 cents yesterday (August 23, 2010) to close at $2.11
while Americans continue to pay that absurd rental fee.
Talk about waste!
In case you care about such things, the national
cheese inventory at the end of July, 2010 totaled
just over 1 billion pounds, about 5 percent over
Anybody for 16 billion grilled cheese sandwiches?
The stored cheese and butter could produce lunch
for every single American 53 days in a row. Vegans
could eat cave-grown mushrooms which can be
purchased at supermarkets caked with dried cow
So I’ll leave you with a question:
Are mushrooms vegan?
The answer: Only if you first scrub off the cow manure…
