Don't ever feel sorry for someone who is as moronic as punjab is.

I quit feeling for him after he showed his complete lack of knowledge and could never produce verifiable and definitive information to refute others truthful information on here.

Then the government should give every business that may be hurting the same opportunity, right? Or are you just saying big business should only get the help needed to survive in bad times? Seems to me a dumbass like you has no idea what capitalism is... But hey, what should I expect from a dumbass. Hey, I had the chance to call you a dumbass two times as well... Oh, and if you are giving out food stamps, you can keep them, I won't be needing any this month..

"Agribusiness hated these supply-management policies when they were enacted in the New Deal and lobbied against them for decades. In the 1970s, they found allies in government officials who believed in a strict "free market" ideology. Over the next two decades, these policies were slowly weakened. Finally, the 1996 Freedom to Farm Act called for the elimination, over seven years, of all price floors and grain reserves, in order to "get government out of agriculture", once and for all.

But, for the government at least, the plan backfired. Prices collapsed by 1998, and the government had to bail out farmers with millions in subsidies, a practice it continues today. For agribusiness, all that mattered was that they no longer had to pay farmers a fair price for their crops. The price of corn plummeted, and the government was forced to make up the difference. A policy change intended to "get government out of agriculture" instead drew government in further, so that, in 2000, 49% of a farmer's income came from the government in the form of subsidies. Meanwhile, between 1997 and 2005, factory farms saved $35 billion buying Farmer Jill's corn for much less than it cost to produce. Family farms are going out of business left and right, factory farms are flourishing, and farmers forced to rely on subsidies are flooding the market with corn, making the corn syrup sweetened products which fuel America's obesity crisis cheaper than ever."

Big yawn... more one-sided propaganda. Good luck finding a real farmer around here that would subscribe to that so-called group.

No having an intelligent conversation with you because you will google whatever helps your argument.

Until you have farmed for a few decades, dealt with buying and selling of livestock, seed, various harvest material, bought land, paid major farm implement prices, fed your livestock twice a day, cleaned hog barns with any sort of consistency, took your spouses money to continue farming, you need to be quiet and stop thinking you know everything.

Good bye you moron.

I have never assumed to know everything about farming. I'm just a n advocate for free and open markets, of which agriculture assuredly is not. If it was individuals like yourself would not be receiving payments, either directly or indirectly, from the federal government.

Good bye you moron.
Plus, you need to deal with various plant diseases like Gray Leaf Spot, Northern corn leaf blight, Common and perhaps Southern rust, Corn Earworm, and soon, Western Bean Cutworm. Also weeds that are could be herbicide resistant. Last but not least, the weather that could ruin pollination and create plant stress. To sum it up, a Corn earworm egg takes 63 heat units to hatch, then it spends about two days feeding on silk then move into the ear to feed on corn kernels.
These are all things the Punjab does not understand.

So does anyone know where the money will be coming from to buy the creekside property? Or will it be another gift by the county via taxpayers dollars directed thru the various legal and illegal agencies of Economic Development.

I am not ok with any industry receiving government bailouts or subsidies. No industry is "too big to fail" including agribusiness.
