Ban Fertilizer?

August 1, 2013 Obama pronounced a new Executive Order effectively banning Ammonium Nitrate, the single source of nitrogen in fertilizer.  His vision is apparently that Americans are safer without this explosive component than with having food and fuel.  Strange tradeoff.

With an administration that will not protect our servicemen in danger in Benghazi, anxious to reverse “Stand Your Ground” protections affording citizens the right to protect themselves from assault, and numerous executive orders and even laws which endanger us at home and abroad…. who can doubt they would trade our food for their safety from expected home-grown terrorists.  We are supposed to believe Muslims are peace loving, but the Feds treat all Americans as potential bomb makers…

…Food and Fuel prices will skyrocket because Ammonium Nitrate forms the basis for almost all nitrogen in granular fertilizers used in American farming. There are no cost and ease of manufacture/use equivalents for ammonium nitrate. Supply and demand economics are going to be the harsh lesson of the day. Crop yields will go down. Corn is the basis for the American food supply and the fuel additive ethanol. A.N. is critical in corn production.

Hope everyone is ready for $12/gallon gasoline and $20 a box corn flakes.
