    At one of the parts places I go to they have a sign that reads:

    "If Wal-Mart is cutting prices every day, how come nothings free yet?"

    Seems to apply to his logic, too! :dizzy:

    I do not cut prices, I raise them. Diesel is no longer $1.78 its $5.18. Potassium nitrate is not $20 a bag it is $50. Urea is $25 instead of $18 and I doubt it is coming down any time soon. Not to mention all of the inexpensive, yet effective pesticides have been banned in favor of New!, politically correct! and expensive$$$$$.

    :) The Wizard of Oz is my all time favorite movie. The message was, don't look towards some "expert" for answers because we have the power to figure it out for ourselves. :)

    Glad I don't do LC in France. I've never had to lower my prices here.

    If he says he is in France and has to decrease his prices, that makes sense. Here in the good ol' USA, NOPE.:usflag:
