Thread: Strong Farm Bill

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Strong Farm Bill



    It's time to end the epidemic of laziness among farmers. Call your congressman and tell them to show strong support for farmers by making them work!
    The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn. And the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.

    Seriously. Those dairy farmers were bitching yesterday. They're trying to get 8k per year each to subsidize them against low demand low price.

    Ummm, SNAP, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program is contained in the farm bill since it's administered by the US Department of Agriculture. Fucking morons. You can't even be clever when trying to troll.

    Good work for those farmers, China just decided to buy its soy from Russia instead of the US....
    Khaladon starts to turn the crystal knob, but stops with a frightened look on his face. He begins shaking uncontrollably and flies across the room, as though by some invisible force.

    **SPLAT!!** Khaladon careens off the far wall, slides down the smooth wood panelling and collapses into a quivering heap on the floor, with only his dignity bruised.

    Farming subsidies are like a US tradition at this point.

    Glad you brought that up. The point, I think, of the trolling, is to highlight the hypocrisy.

    I saw that but I've not seen/read of a devastating impact on farmers or soybean futures. I'm not sure why there isn't much effect. Maybe the U.S. market is the biggest market for soy, or it's already heavily subsidized by the government so it doesn't matter too much if they sell it or let it rot. Perhaps they figure this little trade war will all be settled before it has much impact?

    Ain't that the truth.

    So you agree, government handouts only deepen the dependency of the receiptor?

    Once again, you're trying to hard. Did you just read the 48 Laws of Power? You're attempting to put me on the horns of a dilemma.

    Why don't you ask a question if you have a question, without all the framing.

    Looks like GOP killed their own farm bill.
