This isn't even a good meme. What the fuck are you talking about? How are Canadian wheat farmers getting sold down the river? Why is it unfair to them? Why is Saudi Arabia being portrayed as evil in this case?

This makes no sense.

God bless the stereotypical Yank!

For who else could, with equal arrogance, declare something no good in one sentence while in the very next, proclaim his own ignorance as to it's content and message?

Well-played, sir! I think I understand why you're constantly offending warring with people on Facebook.

What the fuck I am talking about has to do with a neo-conservative privatization of a public good which, in this case, has the added irony that the controlling buyer is an arm of perhaps the most retrograde government on the planet.

Why is Saudi Arabia being portrayed as evil in this case?

Show me an instance in which Saudi Arabia isn't evil, and I will send you a (Canadian) dollar.

This makes no sense.

How do you know, if you don't know "what the fuck [I am] talking about?
