Corps of Engineers: an Equal Opportunity Shell-Game Racket~After raging waters devastated farms, homes and livelihoods along the Missouri River this summer, the Missouri Corn Growers Association is calling on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to immediately reallocate funds to rebuild damaged levees. "Despite their ongoing claims that flood control is the No. 1 priority of the system, the corps continues to state money is not available for levee repair and isn't expected for some time," noted MCGA CEO Gary Marshall. "Meanwhile the corps has millions of dollars at their disposal for other river projects that further jeopardize flood control."
~Editilla wilts like a point'setta~ We really hate to keep bringing this up buuuuut the Corps of Engineers are, well, basically fucking liars who work for higher bidders than the American Taxpayer. They want a new expensive huge flood control structure at the Bird's Point levee breach they caused during their recent flooding project. They will wait out these measly farmers to get what the Corps wants. And from whom will this bell toll? They work for subsidized corporations like ADM and Con Agra, Tyson... the list goes on as these are the Stakeholders who've benefited the most from our Federal Infrastructure. The Corps doesn't give a Rat Fink's Ass for some Corn Growers Assn. Ha! Those people just pay taxes. The larger Engineering Problem lies in their lies about the whole system in the upper Mississippi. It is designed to Get Product Out, not protect stupid farmers dumb enough to've bought the con to grow corn for ethanol. Missouri farmers are shat outta luck and small fry in a bigger cookout.
