    Wes copied the title (as usual) so it's not his fault but it's silly to call it rationing when it's simply on store limiting how much people can buy. Heck, I have "Limit 4" or "Limit 10" items in my grocery store all the time. Real rationing means you can only get so much total.

    I wont give you a chance to accuse me to distort the title ( as usual) :rolleyes:

    So you don't like the title , you know what to do , accuse them , not me. (as usual)

    That's exactly what I did. You don't have any grasp of the English language, do you ?

    Who the fcuk wants to buy that much JASMINE rice anyway?! Yuck, hate that stuff. Just give me some minute rice thank you very much. (Yo momma so stupid it take her 2 hours to cook minute rice). Damn California and their fancy jasmine rice.

    Also you've got to love a story about rice "rationing" which includes video of the reporter standing next to palate upon palate full of huge sacs of rice. The "rationing" was stopping people from buying 30+ of those huge bags at once.

    Do They Still Throw Rice At Weddings

    Mickey Rooney Said "He had Pockmarks On His Face" From Having So Much Rice Thrown At Him.

    (he was married 6 or 7 times)


    12 million illegal aliens buying 100 lb bags of rice, result, rice shortage-:confused:

    He said he knew you didn't write the headline so he wasn't busting on you. You immediately decided he was busting on you and went nuts.

    That tells me you didn't understand what he was saying.

    Oh yeah, yo momma so fat her blood type is rocky road. :p (I remember that one from the nutty professor) :D

    I saw this on CNN today, and Caffery was talking about it like we were running out of food. This is so stupid. People are so stretching this to fit a paranoia, propoganda type hype.

    Just stop and think for a moment how stupid that sounds.

    Think about the thousands and thousands of tons of Chinese goods coming into this country on a daily basis--but rice is what they stop sending?

    Hmm. They could...raise the price?
