Makes me sick! It's been a big issue around here. All the farmers here know it will be the death of our sugar industry, but hey! (Just like giving China MFN was the death of the US apple industry.) Cheaper food--that's what we all want, right?

You know, cheap food (and cheap cars, TVs, computers, etc) are all really nice until those that hold the monopoly through price gouging, gov subsidies,etc suddenly raise the prices, or worse, decide to cut off all exports. Then what are we going to do for food?

Two cotton pickin votes! That's all we had to do to win--just get two people to change their vote. OK, three, cause I'm sure Cheney wouldn't have voted the right way.
