    The Tea Party is demanding that farm price supports be increased.

    The RepubliCon ‘strategy’ is to deflate and decrease the value of most property, goods, businesses and labor so all of same can be accumulated by a certain minority of cash rich souls. ’Tis buy low, sell high and the devil, or bankruptcy, or poor healthcare, or penury, or hunger, take the hindmost.

    Gingrich named this strategy during the RepubliCon Debates — Social Darwinism — in a rare moment of OB-GYN-GOP truth-telling. Someone — likely surnamed Rove or Koch — took Newt aside. The phrase was immediately dropped and has not been employed publicly since. I’m sure, however, behind closed RepubliCon doors, it’s used with satisfied amusement all the time.

    Most of the middle class would appreciate prices going down. I sure would, the government is interested in keeping inflation going because inflation helps the rich more than anyone else.

    Funny, by eliminating the food stamp program from the farm subsidy legislation, the food stamp program will continue on exactly as in years past. no increase but no decrease either. Well, until legislation is drafted, debated, passed and signed that does one or the other for food stamps.

    I support the program. It helps those that can not support themselves. However, there is fraud and waste in all government programs. So get a grip libs, fix the program.

    The Koch/Tea Party’s motto is “You make more than the average Somali, so STFU.”

    @Adrian Snare

    Yep, waste everywhere.

    I use credit cards – but pay them off every month.

    I own a truck (25MPG) – but live within 2 miles of every shop I use.

    I use a scale to measure out food portions and use 90% of my leftovers.

    I have now and have always used a “budget” to manage my finances.

    When will “government” do any of these things?

    When will government do any of these things? When government is a single family household.

    The opposite of inflation is deflation and trust me, it’s not a comforting idea, but deflation is not good either.

    “When conservative trolls can’t refute a point, they turn to insults and/or name-calling.”
    There I fixed it for you. But to your original, and false statement, please prove where Bandusia insulted or called names at anyone. Where?, prove it.
    .
    And on your original but false statement, if it were true it makes you mad when a liberal copies the republican mantra doesn’t it?

    " However, there is fraud and waste in all government programs. So get a grip libs, fix the program."
    The problem is the republicans don’t want to fix the program, they only want to eliminate it. So any attempt by the Democrats to fix it will either require a super-majority in both houses of Congress and the Presidency or the republicans will block, obstruct and gut the program before any meaningful fix can reach the President’s pen. You are right, there is waste fraud and abuse in most government programs. But the only ones the republicans care about “fixing” are the programs they don’t like. The rest their friends and allies benefit from the W, F & A so those programs can’t be touched. And by “fixing” what is really meant is really eliminating. so you should take your own advise and GET A GRIP.

    “The Tea Party is saving America from total destruction.”
    That is one of the biggest LIES EVER! But keep thinking that and this country will be destroyed. Thankfully there are intelligent people, in both parties, who understand the real damage the Take Everything Available (and give NOTHING back) party is doing to this nation.
    .
    And one question, just how deep and vile does your hatred have to go in order for you to be blinded to the devastation this (bowel) movement is having on this nation?

    @Tigger

    Nah, the Take Everything Available (and give NOTHING back) party is turning on the republicans because they aren’t as radical and extreme as the tea baggers demand. The reps aren’t 1 step away from falling off the edge.

    I like and agree with your comments today, Bruce. They are accurate and both make a lot of common sense.
    I just wanted to let you know something I learned about the food stamp program and those who use them; I recently helped a friend who is a 7-11 franchisee upgrade some networking and security equipment in his store, and noticed a lot of people using food stamps for “junk food”. Since I was hanging around quite a bit (I got free Slurpees) I got to know a few of them and asked them why they did this instead of buying “real” food. I was surprised at the answer. It turns out that, in trying to feed a family of four (or more), if you buy actual groceries for a meal, meaning fresh vegetables, a protein, a starch, and juice or milk, it can cost between $5 to $10 per person. The “junk food”, though much less healthy, can replace a meal at about $2 per person by providing the sugars and carbs to needed to make the kids feel full at the cost of any nutritional value. Hence the other criticism that poor people are overweight – they are actually nutritionally deficient. It’s a tough choice to make for a family, but in New England especially, rent and taxes are disproportionate to lower incomes, meaning that food stamps are the entire food budget for many families, and they need them to last an entire month. That means no fresh foods, only cheap, processed crap.
    This may tie in with the Farm Bill issues – why is fresh food so much more expensive? Why are food stamps not given a discount for vegetables and meat? You are completely right – fix the problem.
