It's sad but he will make it elsewhere off the GOVT. with subsidies or some other program.
Maybe he'll take People's Bank to the bank

Am I suppose to feel sorry for this farmer because now he will have to start obeying the law?

Hey, what's the problem? The Feds will come up with a new subsidy that would take the form of free insurance that would cover farmers' "crop losses" before their paid insurance kicks in. Growers could get the direct payments no matter what the crop yields were. Hey, for that matter, they won't even have to farm. It's a win win for farmers who lived above our laws. I feel no pity for them.

Clearly 40+ years of this farmer taking advantage of us isn't enough for him? Stanley doesn't pay for their medical care, does he? I wonder how many Stanley "guest workers" forgot to leave, when he was done with them?
