Grew up on a farm, worked it. I know what work is. Get off your lazy ass and quit trying to start something

How much money did you get paid not to grow crops to keep the prices up?

We barely got by, we had cows, dairy. Hogs. Horses. Grew all our food. We worked hard long days. I helped with hay, tobacco, but I would not slaughter animals. After my first chicken never again. As far as I know we never got paid to NOT grow something. You must have me confused with a big time farmer. None of which live in anything county

My parents are not on the list. Sold out when my grandfather became ill. So so me people might make money but I know for sure we didn't. Wore hand down clothes and proud to have them. Then I learned to sew. I am proud of who I am,a hard working woman raised on a farm and appreciate everything I worked for. I don't apologize for it either.

I agree!!! I didn't know farming was so lucrative. No wonder they drive in $50k or more trucks. Don't want to hear about those unemployed or elderly or those who must use social services. I need to buy me a big farm as a tax write-off.

Maybe Obama will help them out more when milk goes to $7 or $8 per gallon. If you want to bitch about people getting paid for doing nothing why don't you look at the fools you've voted into Washington?
