This report on the effects of oversupply in the US milk market and other milk markets reminds us of a joke we once heard in Hilmar, a local dairy center. The dairyman watched the price of milk slide and slide until finally the milk price was zero.

"Good time to buy cows," he said.

Hillary Clinton: Ol' "Honey" Bill's candidate for president

Submitted: Jul 27, 2016

 We were impressed by this note by Michael Moore in a section in the July 18 issue of The Nation called "We still need a future to believe in." Perhaps it was because it accords with our own gloomy view. Despite a real Murderers Row of Democratic Party orators on the opening night of the party's convention -- Sen. Cory Booker, First Lady Michelle Obama, Sen. Elizabeth Warren -- and a speech for the history books by Sen. Bernie Sanders, our fears of political chaos in the Democratic Party are not allayed.

In the Democratic Party of 2016, everybody's special; ordinary Americans need not apply, and just might not, much. These successful aspirants -- Booker, the Obamas, Warren, Bill and Hill -- who found their social ladders to climb in academia and politics -- are no inspiration for ordinary people who lack these particular gifts and historical opportunity. And, of course, there is no reward for any child who lacks the ambition to out-compete his schoolmates.

 Surface sinking, bottom rising

 

This article ought to be read together with the previous posting, "Harken to the harmony ...," to form a clearer picture of the politics and economics of the Colorado River Plateau in its 15th year of drought. Perhaps one could hum the tune to "How deep is the ocean" for a fuller reading experience.

Those who argue, on the other hand, that mankind has no chance of surviving the end but still has a chance to avert it, by getting rid of nuclear weapons, devising less wasteful technologies, and adopting a less wasteful way of life, rightly refuse to console themselves with the fantasy of a new life after the apocalypse, -- Christopher Lasch, The Minimal Self, Norton (1984), p. 86.
