If they were so stupid that they didn't move far enough away, who is at fault? The law has been in place for DECADES. How dumb do you have to be to spend tens of thousands of dollars if not hundreds of thousands of dollars without knowing ALL the pros and cons, risks and responsibilities attaching to that purchase?

I haven't heard much from Pee Wee Durbin lately. Surprised he hasn't been out trumping the "we are not at war with radical Islam" spin.

Record $140 billion in exports anticipated for this year

1 year, 5 months ago from USDA

But big decline projected for next year

While exports are forecast at a record 140-billion dollars for this fiscal year - exports in the next fiscal year are projected to drop five-billion dollars to 135-billion. That's according to USDA's Economic Research Service. The biggest decline is expected in oilseeds and products - down 5.4-billion dollars on lower soybean and meal prices.

Lower wheat, rice and feeds and fodders exports are expected to result in a 1.7-billion dollar drop in grain and feed exports. ERS forecasts a 700-million dollar decline in cotton exports due to lower domestic production and reduced demand from China. Little change is expected in exports of livestock, poultry and dairy products. Horticultural exports are actually to increase 2.5-billion to a record of 34.5-billion dollars. Agricultural imports for the 2014 fiscal year are forecast at a record 113-billion dollars - eight-billion higher than this fiscal year. The trade surplus is expected to fall to 22-billion - a 13-billion dollar drop. According to ERS - 22-billion would mark the smallest surplus since 2007.
