In 2013 the chickens will not come home to roost

The Great Drought of 2012 has yet to come to an end, but we already know that its consequences will be severe. With more than one-half of America’s counties designated as drought disaster areas, the 2012 harvest of corn, soybeans and other food staples is guaranteed to fall far short of predictions. This, in turn, will boost food prices domestically and abroad, causing increased misery for farmers and low-income Americans and far greater hardship for poor people in countries that rely on imported US grains.
This, however, is just the beginning of the likely consequences: if history is any guide, rising food prices of this sort will also lead to widespread social unrest and violent conflict.
Perhaps the shadow elite in the Federal Government considered a combustible situation like this when the Department of Homeland Security bought an enormous quantity of hollow point ammunition and, to be sure, bullet resistant booths. Desperately hungry people little to lose and no other way out but to riot when seeking their goal.
