    Reasonable summary of how many of our tax dollars are redistributed.

    For a successful super power (or even a civilization) you only need two things, food and wepon. If we don’t take care of the farmers, we will go the way of U.S.S.R.

    the welfare for corporations is way more expensive than welfare for children, the senior citizens, and the disabled.
    . Monsanto is killing the family farmers, and so is agribusiness.

    And thanks to the Monsanto Protection Act if their franken foods cause you or your family cancer, good luck suing them in court.

    What I want to know is which member of the Washington brain trust came up with paying Tobacco farmers Millions of $$ due to falling profits, while at THE SAME TIME spending millions of $$ to get people to QUIT USING TOBACCO??

    That reminds me of how we get our astronauts to and from the space station.

    reread the cartoon. You missed the boat.

    “Agri-business” has long sucked up more taxpayer money, in numerous ways and programs, than individuals. Tobacco and corn for ethanol may be two of the more egregious.

    @dtroutma

    No, no! I heard a public service announcement about how ethanol is saving the world, and they said that the corn they use to make inferior gasoline is corn that people can’t even eat anyway. It was a public service announcement, so it must be true. On the other hand, there was a PSA by a Sheriff Clark about how you have to be ready for trouble because when trouble is seconds away, the police are minutes away, occasioning the passage of a new regulation to prohibit that sort of self-serving PSA by public officials.

    @ahab

    That may explain why a wealthy establishment republican was a poor choice to run against a (hahahahaha) reformist, centrist, maverick, liberal, socialist re-incarnation of Lincoln.

    Now DrCanuck don’t be bashing the red necks. I own and operate a modest farm, and I don’t like the farm bill or subsidies. All I want is a fair price for my product and my dollar to be able to buy something. There is way too much junk added in any legislation that doesn’t belong. The corporate farms and big business are the only beneficiaries from the farm bills.

    @BrassOrchid

    So… Are you saying that sherrif clark was wrong? Are the police just milleseconds from your door when the home invaders try breaking in? Can you open your closet door and have a swat team pop out?

    No, the fact of the matter is that police are there to pick up the peices and try to find the culprits AFTER the crime has been committed, not before, and only incidentally if they discover a crime in progress.

    Now if you want to make a new law stating that PSA’s must be truthful, then I would recommend that regulation be extended to politicians as well. If they place something untrue in one of their ads or speaches, they are immediately disqualified from the election. I would be able to call any of my opponents reprobates and theives without personal honor or any redeeming value to society except as bad examples and a tragic waste of carbon, and be completely truthful while so saying.
