So, people are starving in Africa at the rate of thousands per day while their governments are refusing free food and cheap food. Of course, no matter what might be objectionable about such food, it is less objectionable than no food. Starvation is just not that much fun. But, the nations do not want to jeopardize their trade relations so they abide by the wishes of the EU, which mostly wishes to oppose the U.S.A. wherever possible, especially when the French make the decisions.

The Pope, however, is concerned about starvation. Expect a major announcement soon supporting genetically modified food. Maybe he’ll also throw in something about how stupid it is to kill people by starvation to tweak the nose of the United States. Maybe France will ship them large shipments of organically raised snails.
