Don't talk with your mouth full.We have some of the cheapest food in the world and you b!tch because we get a little help.Have you bought a tractor or planter lately? My tractor cost near 200,000 dollars and my combine cost neat 300,000 planter 50,000 It takes a lot of money to produce this cheap food.You don't say anything when your SSI check and food stamp card comes in the mail,I work 12-20 hour day while wou sit back and do nothing but complaine.I feel we don't get enough help as it is.

I dont get food stamps ...own my own business that survives on profit....pay a lot of property tax too....you must have yours on the greenbelt....if i cant pay my bills i close....the reason we have cheap food is the cheap imports from south america....how is giving you a check to buy overinflated equipment , because they know you get a check , producing cheap food....if you cant or dont have enough sense to run your farm get out of business and let someone else run it....all I see the checks buy is expensive suburbans and condos at pickwick

Well B!#^h why don't you raise your own damn food then if your so smart,Don't you go to no store and buy no bread or milk, since that would be supporting those awful crooked farmers that have worked so hard to keep yo butt fat and sassy. People like you make me puke,go to Europe and see what the prices of food are over there,then maybe you get a whole new appreciation for our American farmers. You don't know what the h*ll your talking about.

Old school when is the last time you had to buy a piece of equipment that cost over 300,000 when was the last time you tried to operate on 5% and tried to buy this expensive of equipment,this is what it takes to feed America and we farmers do a great job.OLD SCHOOL I as a farmer think you as a business man and any else thats wants some of this easy money to take every thing you own and sink it in this very risky business.the goverment will send you one of these big fat checks,do it don't let me and the other farmers get it all to ourselves.

the Fullens have a farm in South America as well. wonder if the tax subsidies pay for that, too? I am all for assistance when it is needed, but sometimes it goes too far.
I like the joke about how the farmer looked down his nose at the yankee who drove his mercedes by, the the one who drove his rolls royce by. when asked how could he be so snobbish, he replied, son, I have a machine in my barn that cost over a quarter million that only gets driven a couple times a year...do you think I am impressed with those?
frankly, I think the tax assistance is for the little guy who is struggling to eat and make his little farm feed and clothe his family. it is time to cut off the money to the others.

my business runs on a slim profit margin too...i take all the risk....the only difference is if I don't make it I file bankruptcy and you and the other arrogant farmer babies can sit around the john deere dealership and talk about how bad a business person I am....I will be glad when they cut it off and you are walking behind a mule again....p.s. go change your diaper

what do ya'll do with the money you get from your crop....does your farm nit bring in any revenue....I know where you can get all the help you need ....it's called a bank....thats where the rest of us in business get our help....of course you have to pay them back....that might be a new concept for you

If you make a deliberate effort to plan your crops around subsidy money and hope to fail that is crooked....I promis you if they cut out subsidies the only economy that would suffer would be the farmers getting the money....can you at least let us spend a night in your condo ....its the least you can do for the taxpayers that keep you in business....keep whining ...we dont care if you lose today

All you farmers are in complete control by the government....they know what you plant and how much....great to know when you can manipulate the prices at harvest.....have you not noticed that the more money you get , the higher seed , equipment, and chemicals get....they have ya'll like pet hampsters in a wheel....you think you are winning , but they are just using you , because no one else is stupid enough to farm....congrats to you all....they will keep weeding the smaller ones out until they have it more under control , then they will illiminate the big corporate farms....you just think controlling oil is powerful, wait until food
