Twin Lobster Fantasy

Seen on the sidewalks of America:

How do they know? Sure, they might look the same, but that’s no guarantee, as Chris Dodd and Josef Stalin know.  Plus, maybe they’re fraternal twins, and how would you know that? 

I suspect a ruse.  People looking to fulfill their fantasy of cracking open and sucking out twins at a local restaurant are sure to be disappointed.  But perhaps I am premature.  Possibly the wait staff use DNA tests. What a speciality that would be.

    Drought Causes Food Crisis for Nearly 1 Million in Guatemala

    BOGOTA, COLOMBIA—

    Nearly 1 million people in Guatemala are struggling to feed themselves as poor rainfall has led to drought and shrunken harvests, worsening hunger among the poor, the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization said.

    Linked to the El Nino weather phenomenon, this year’s drought has been very hard on subsistence farmers living in Central America’s dry corridor that runs through parts of Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua.

    “In Guatemala, 170,000 families, approximately 900,000 people, have no food reserves left. This is the third consecutive year they have been hit by drought,” Diego Recalde, head of the FAO in Guatemala, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. [more]

    Severe ‘food shocks’ more likely due to extreme weather, experts warn

    Extreme weather such as intense storms, droughts and heatwaves will cause more frequent and severe food shortages as the global climate and food supply systems change, British and American experts warned on Friday.

    The pressure on the world’s food supplies is so great, and the increase in extreme weather events so rapid, they said, that food shortages on a scale likely to occur once a century under past conditions, may in future hit as often as once every 30 years. [more]

    American Food Banks Struggle to Keep Up Amidst “Surprising” Demand

    http://libertyblitzkrieg.com/2015/08/14/american-food-banks-struggle-to-keep-up-amidst-surprising-demand/

    Food banks across the country are seeing a rising demand for free groceries despite the growing economy, leading some charities to reduce the amount of food they offer each family.

    U.S. food banks are expected to give away about 4 billion pounds of food this year, more than double the amount provided a decade ago, according to Feeding America, the nation’s primary food bank network. The group gave away 3.8 billion in 2013.

    While reliance on food banks exploded when the economy tanked in 2008, groups said demand continues to rise year after year, leaving them scrambling to find more food.

    Lisa Hamler-Fugitt, executive director of the Ohio Association of Food Banks, who has been working in food charities since the 1980s, said that when earlier economic downturns ended, food demand declined, but not this time. [more]

    46 million Americans go to food banks, and long lines for dwindling food supplies begin at 6:30 AM

    http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/46-million-americans-go-to-food-banks-and-long-lines-for-dwindling-food-supplies-begin-at-630-am

    Those that run food banks all over America say that demand for their services just continues to explode. It always amazes me that there are still people out there that insist that an “economic collapse” is not happening. From their air-conditioned homes in their cushy suburban neighborhoods they mock the idea that the U.S. economy is crumbling. But if they would just go down and visit the local food banks in their areas, they would see how much people are hurting. According to Feeding America spokesman Ross Fraser, 46 million Americans got food from a food bank at least one time during 2014. Because the demand has become so overwhelming, some food banks are cutting back on the number of days they operate and the amount of food that is given to each family. [read the rest]
