Because You Didn't Ask

“The use of solar energy has not been opened up because the oil industry does not own the sun.”
- Ralph Nader

Why is food so expensive?

Because the price of oil is high.

Why is the price of oil so high?

Because the dollar is devalued.

Why is the dollar devalued?

Because we borrowed lots of money from China.

Why did we borrow money from China?

So we could afford to invade Iraq.

Why did we invade Iraq?

So that we could keep its oil off the market.

Why would we keep its oil off the market?

So that its price would go up.

Ah! So we'll use oil profits to pay off our debts with China and eventually bring food prices back to normal, right?

Uh, yeah, right.
