wait until they slap the candy tax on him.  guess we should all stock up on sugar?  did the interview say why?
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

High price for HFCS has increased the demand for cane sugar.  Soda makers are even using cane sugar instead of corn syrup in some cases.
