You know, the ones that drive around in $100,000.00 pickups, that the republican congress just gave $1,000,000,000,000.00 of American tax payer funds ! They didn't even drug test them...what a hoot.

Must be election time in Dburg...

BS, most of the farmers here send their food to China and the rest of the lazy arsed 3rd world countries, causing inflation to the 10 degree for Americans. Those barges on the ol Mississippi are loaded with grain heading to the rest of the world. INFLATION awaits you and I while the farmers LAUGH all the way to the bank with tax payers welfare money, yet the aholes cain't afford to raise min wages, esp in the low IQ red slave states...what a hoot.

You are one ignorant TN turd, your republican congress(not Obama) is the ones that voted to give the farmers $1,000,000,000,000.00 of tax payers welfare subsidies. In case you didn't know ,your republican congress controls the purse strings for America, VOTERS need to change that so go vote.

I never agree with "Andy", But this time I will!!!! These farmers are getting rich on my dime! Come on now! Just you take a look around and you will see for your self!! I mean come on, Who else can work about 6 mo. out of the year and can afford a 2014 F-250 or Chevy 2500 D-max loaded out with leather etc.? Huh? House and shop worth about $500,000 or better!!! Wife driving an loaded up Explorer or Suburban? And for the grand finally an irrigation system worth what the farm is worth!! All at YOUR expense!!!!!! Not to mention the new John Deere or Case equipment that alone would cost $ 1,000,000 or better!! Go to Newbern @ Mc Donalds or Cozy Kitchen in Dyersburg any morning. They gather there till 9 am then go to work. Quit about 5pm. What hours for the pay!! Huh? I bet any employee at NSK or Ermco, or Hecko would swap places with them and never gripe!!!! Enough is enough!! Time to cut the purse strings!! Besides, don't believe what you hear about "Farmers" feeding America!! Just look @ the label next time your in Kroger or Wal-Mart!!! So. American beef, pork, poultry!!!

Oh, and a few other things probably few of you know. They pay NO sales tax on most items purchased!!! Trucks, tractors, tools,fuel, parts, equipment, fencing supplies, lumber, etc. and on and on. Also get this, If a contractor is building a house, or construction work going on etc. the road or pavement nearby is to be cleaned by them if any mud or debris gets on it. But let it rain and a Farmer can take a tractor or combine out of the field and sling mud 5 miles down the road with nothing said!!! But let a contractor get 2 dirt clods on the road and TDEC or TDOT or OSHA will come down on them like GOD!!! with all his wrath!!!$2,000-$10,000 fine!!! So what's the difference in Contractor mud and Farmer mud? You tell me??

Oh, and another thing bet the general public doesn't know. A "Farmer" can leave a field with his equipment and sling mud or dirt 5 miles down the road and nothing will be said!! Let a Contractor building a house or on a job site do that and you would think that he had robbed a bank!! TDEC, TDOT, TOSHA, OSHA,etc. would come down on them like GOD with all his wrath!!! Fines of up to $10,000 and black mark on his business license. Thousands of dollars of erosion control to do a small job on 2 ac. Farmers plow in road ditches and the County Hwy Dept has to clean them out at our expense. With NOT a WORD or FINE!!!!! Not right. We all should play by the same rules. What's the difference between "Farm Mud" and "Contractor Mud" ? Tell me.

Don't lump all farmers into one group. My husband is a farmer. He does not take any government subsidies. His equipment is not new. His truck is not new. Our house is not fancy. Not all farmers or their families are living high on the hog.

Yes, my apologies to you. You are correct in what you say. I too know some tho ,not many who aren't with the "Welfare Farmers". I overheard a conversation of 3 of these gentlemen discussing building a new barn. Seems some Government program will pay 45-60% of the cost for it. They were laughing saying none of them needed one , BUT WHY NOT !! Jeeze!!

If there were no farm subsides, America's food cost would triple. Farmers work hard and everything they buy from seed, fuel, equipment and land is very expensive. If the government programs were not in place we would all suffer. It's more complicated than you realize.

We don't want to "get them out of the picture". We just want them to start running their businesses the way everyone else does. For example, looks like corn will be a bumper crop this year. Ok, put some of that money back so that the next we have a drought and the crop is not good, they can handle it instead of sticking their hand out to the government.

When I have a bad year in my business I have to use my savings, possibly get a mortgage or 2nd mortgage, maybe even a second job, and work my way out of it. Farmers should have to do the same thing.

Maybe if he runs a Dairy. They are the only ones I know of that put in that many hours every day of the year!! They earn their money. I know. Have worked at one. Very labor intensive.
