Talk about a tangled web of deception....
What hapened to Bush's plan to make America more competitive? It was a deception...
The deal has you the taxpayers paying 11 and a half million dollars for 22,000 tons of peaches that will be given away to children of illegals. That works out to be around 27 cents a pound I believe.
You hit the nail on the head with that post AG, that is exactly what is happening, every word it true.

Remember the "lettuce will be $5 a head" crap?

Read the article I posted today on the huge amount of trucks bringing in Mexican produce. We are really getting screwed by this whole "agricultural industry" when what they really are is big business that couldn't care less about the US, it's all about big $$$$$.
