Not Just In Egypt: Obama policies have driven up food prices, triggering riots

Perhaps the most over used but most accurate term used to describe the policies and ideology of the American Left is the "Law of Unintended Consequences."  There is virtually nothing that these people espouse that once put in place has not had detrimental effects on either the people of the United States or the world. 

Today there is a global food shortage and sky-rocketing prices.  This has become the underlying factor in the riots in Tunisia, Algeria and Egypt, where up to 56% of a person's income is dedicated to the acquisition of food.  These riots are now leading to the upheaval of governments and the very real possibility of the ascendancy of the radical elements into control.
If you've a mind to, please click here for the full monte. Oh and by the way; I refuse to believe that certain policies return 'unintended' consequences.
