Ok if your so smart how many trucks do farmers own. That includes pickups, straight trucks, and semi trucks. While we're naming names how about government take your house, but you probably don't own it so lets say your phone or maybe your computer for less than worth and see how you like it. So if I'm a farmer and own ten trucks to your one that would mean that I pay more road tax giving me more right to the road than you. Your example.
seeing as how you have ten trucks to my one then it stands to reason that you use the road ten times more. making your point moot.as far as eminent domain goes when the bypass went through the property owners came out very well.

Hey father goose.
I just passed a tractor AT NIGHT the other night on 56 headed towards the Y community, guess what buddy, it didnt have lights! and it was a little unexpected to even see it at night with no lights. apparently you have NO IDEA what you're talking about.

No it does not stand to reason because all of these trucks aren't on the road at the same time. Father goose I guess it would stand to reason that you are and have a bird brain.

If there's room for oncoming traffic to get by, there'sroom to pass jackass. I won't get off the road because my tires alone are worth more than your vehicle damage may be.

You don't have to get off the road when you meet a tractor, just let him hit you and sue the hell out of him, regardless , he can only have his half not 3/4

then it is only using fuel that it paid fuel tax on while it is on the road. so it doesnt matter how much or how many you own or drive, it pretty much is a wash regaurdless what the ratio is. regaurdless farmers should show a little common sence and get over when they can.

Glad to see the lists of Subsidies, Kentucky farmers are some of the top earners of subsidies. But the first ones to point fingers at the poor, Im' sure there is no one getting that kind of cash on food stamps. So go right ahead and vote repub to guarentee your WELFARE CHECK!

the Senate and House versions of the farm bill propose new programs that will, wholly at taxpayersÂ’ expense,
pick up the deductible on an already heavily subsidized crop insurance policy. To pay for them, they want to shift $35 billion, or 70 percent of the $50 billion in projected savings from ending the so-called direct payment farm subsidy, to fund the new subsidy programs.

The new subsidies plus the current crop insurance program will cost taxpayers at least $125 billion over the next decade.

Why are we paying for your crop insurance?

I'm sorry your parents and/or grandparents were not farmers; otherwise, you'd likely own farmland and be preaching a different story. It is what it is, nothing more, nothing less. Peace and stay strong.

A lot of you need to get your facts straight. The next time you eat what ever it is other than fruit or vegetables it subsidized. If it was not it would be triple the price. Next farm machinery has the right of way just like a bicycle does!!

farmers just think they have the right of way. they are required to obey the traffic laws the same as bikes or cars. if you do a fact check you will find the subsidies are actually "price supports" which raise prices not lower them on commodities.

I do not farm my land personally, but rather have it cash leased. As part of the farm lease agreement, the leasee gets any farm subsidy payments, not me. I decided that the person doing the actual farming carried the risk and not me since I receive my money regardless of the weather, etc.

Whether you want to admit it or not, you live in Union County. You live where SAT scores, college degrees (for the most part), and general intelligence is faaaaaaar outweighed by having an obnoxiously big truck for no reason, your self-righteous last name, and your amazing affinity to never do anything that involves leaving this 'great' town. The fact of the matter is, if your a farmer or the brat of a farmer, you have it made. You're royalty. Why should they get over so we can go to real jobs when the redneck hierarchy around here dictates that they don't really have to. Yeah, you guys make corn.... Good job.... What about doctors, legitimate lawyers, soldiers, the people that actually deserve respect daily? Don't move over for them, right? Walk around with your starched up tucked in expensive button ups and skin tight jeans, that does not make you any better than anyone else. And coal miners? Congratulations on being able to crawl underground as soon as you graduate high school and stay there until your broken and useless... Got it... You're 'important' coal comes from all over, there are a whoooooooole lot of 'important' people. So put your stupid stickers on your ridiculous trucks and just know that you aren't fooling most of us, that we know you took the mentally challenged way out and try to pass it off now as being a hero for the community. Get over yourselves you rednecks... End rant.
