And I suppose you think a clock-punching stiff working for minumum wage at a factory or worse doesn't have it bad? Your seasonal work amounts to nothing compared to some jobs i know of...so yes, the farm life is much easier 365 than most clock punchers.Oh one more thing. If you actually look into the bill relating to farm subsidies you will see that about 95 percent of that total bill is for food stamps. They just do not want you to know that.
As for your upholding farm welfare, I could care less what the price of milk increases to,$4 gallon gas is much worse. Will $5 diesel fuel hurt your 'business' or will the government subsidize it, or will it be a tax exemption?
How about crep and caip, does that have anything to do with foodstamps?
The fact is, most folks kicking a 40+ hr week don't realise how much of this "bullshit" goes on. They don't have a clue their tax money is buying $300k combines, tractors and $50k pickup trucks.
Seems odd that big farms are always owned by wealthy individuals but i'm sure they're working themselves to death, ehh?
I know for a fact that all farmers are NOT recipients and I respect those individuals for their work!
