Hormel profits rise

But this IS an interesting indicator. It can't JUST be doomers buying this stuff up, Joe Sixpack must be squirreling a few tins away as well - while all the time saying "Gee, I don't think there's any need to prepare."

Urk. Maybe Joe is smarter than us. Head hurts now.

Hey Colin,

If Joe was all that smart he probably wouldn't be eating Spam!

Spam, the ultimate mystery meat. Anyone know what is really in it?

Screw Spam-

Can your own beef, pork, chicken, etc. Much tastier AND cheaper. I'm up to about 100 (+/-) pints and climbing....

"Can o' Lips and Ass" is what we called it in the army...

Spam just has different seasonings than buying a ham with water added product. So many people have never tasted real ham with no water added, (read your ham label) real backyard raised chicken, real milk, real butter, or real ice-cream for that matter. The American people have been dumbed down in more than just education.

It is interesting, that I have been mulling this "possibly duped" situation for many months. I read where the grocery can food have a shelf live of a few years. Read where the nutrition declines with age. Raed of the Horrors of Botulism in home canned foods. But then I came upon several Fox Fire books. Our Ancestors lived without refrigeration, they canned, dryed, smoked ,salted and pickled their foods, and they lived. Else we would not be here. Can anyone say "in the best interests of big business?"
