    By all means, put everyone on food stamps and let the government control farming. They do such a great job wrecking everything they touch, yet dimwits keep asking them for more.

    Here’s a radical approach for you!
    Banish lobbyists! Encourage legislators to get their “facts” and “studies” from colleges, and/or hire Interns to attend our prestigious universities which specialize in Economics, Human Relations, and Ethics. They should also employ ombudsmen to live full time in their districts and serve on “Community Service Forums”, negating the need for them to spend long periods away from their pressing tasks as legislators.
    Base each legislator’s pay on the median income of his or her constituents.
    Legislators (and candidates) should have to pass literacy and competency tests, as well as tests which could show whether or not they understand the way our democracy should work.
    Congress should remain in session all year, with individual vacation time based on seniority, just as it is for the working class Americans.
    Do away with the elitism which our representatives enjoy, such as making them subject to every bit of legislation that they pass. Make pensions commensurate with time served.
    Abolish all perks, and make them contribute to and depend upon) Social Security and Medicare.
    Abolish political parties. Negate the need for campaign contributions by forcing the Media to provide free Programs, advertisements and forums for all candidates for public office. Campaign contributions should be limited to volunteering time and talents. Monetary contributions should be illegal.
    Finally, furlough all current public officeholders.
    Things will change!

    Yes, defend those small “family farmers”: ADM, Cargill, Monsanto, and now the Chinese company that bought the largest hog producer in America!

    It would have been hilarious if a Muslim Sheik had bought Smithfield to invest his oil money we’ve been sending him!!

    Food stamps are supposed to help Americans retain at least a basic level of nutrition. At least this was the case when they were first implemented. In theory, you give food stamps to people, they spend them on food, American farmers get paid.

    What the hell, kick the poor off of food stamps and give more money directly to the large farming corporations. Skip the middle man? Shaft the poor…
