There’s a common belief that the Midwest feeds the nation. Not so. California, Florida, South Texas, Mexico and Central America feed the US.
Midwest farmers produce:
- Corn. Most of which goes to ethanol, the rest of which goes to China or to chicken feed.
- Soybeans. That smell like dogshit; most of them go to China, the rest go to chicken feed.
And now Midwestern farmers are pissing and moaning because Trump’s tariff war with China is killing them, leading to the highest rate of farm bankruptcies since the Dust Bowl days. Well, they voted for him.
