      Where is your source for that? I don't know of any references on her life that mention a Ukraine visit.

      Consider also that Presidents did not travel around the world at that time nearly as much as they do now.

        And?

        We should all be asking the question; 'How much of your own food do you produce?'

        Where would you go to get food if all the stores were closed?

        A surprisingly large number of people in the so-called "developed" world answer "zero" and "I don't know."
        I hate to break it to you, Stormy, but that is how food distribution has worked since day one. Even in Colonial America, food was produced by farmers and sold on the market. America's part in that trade was exporting foodstuffs such as grain, wheat, corn, and rum via corporations such as the East India Company.

        Of course if was a fact that in Colonial America, most people produced the food that was on their dinner table, however that was at a time when America was 90% agarian. Now that number is the opposite, it's maybe 10% agarian. Most Americans do not have the land acreage available, not to mention the time, to continuously produce their own food.

        And to your assertion that today's corporations could create a famine: why would they want to, under any circumstances??? As the left notes with abhorance, corporations exist for one purpose only - to make a profit. Attempting to create a famine by making food unavailable to "the masses" would ruin said corporation, because by making food unavailable, their flow of income would be cut off, which would also result in a drop in their stock price and stockholder anger and/or investor panic.

        There's also the fact that the food distribution industry is extremely decentralized, unlike the oil industry. If, say, ConAgra were to attempt to do what you've suggested they are capable of doing, its competitors would be happy to take up the slack and make a mockery of ConAgra's efforts.

        What does this have to do with the availability of food supply?
