How about $1.1 billion in farm subsidies from 1999 to 2006 given to dead people? I guess you are all for the dead getting paid since they are not working either? It's our money, quit accepting it for not working, or being dead
Kind of like all the dead folk who vote every year in our elections? Its still food. You still eat it. Stop crying.

A Government Accounting Office report last year discovered 172,801 deceased individuals received subsidies, 19% of them dead for seven years or more. In some cases the money went to deceased agri-business corporate executives. In others, to estates which families no longer farm.

LOL Yeah you fit right in with them. Eating our cash up aren't you and proud of it..

I'm quite proud to be involved in food production, and I'm proud that our nation subsidizes a safe, affordable, and abundant food supply. I like eating. It's food. You eat it. Don't you enjoy food?

It sounds to me like HBT is an honest farmer. Lets not assume everyone takes advantage of it. It does need to be looked into though.

I kinda wonder how to justify 172,801 dead people getting money and how much food a dead person can grow or not grow.

The fact that you would wonder something so silly just reinforces your unlearned persona. Maybe to solve this anomaly you should dedicate your life work to stamping out fraud waste and abuse in out Govt. The Govt accounting office has a hotline you can call to report this horrible injustice: 1-800-424-5454
Meanwhile back at the ranch, I have a cow just about ready to have her calf, gotta go check on her. I'm sure glad our Govt subsidizes our safe, abundant, and affordable food supply.

No, you are just glad you are on welfare and not the poverty kind. Really proud of sucking that tit. I am a real man and got off my momma's tit and never wanted another tit especially if it sucks money from everyone. When you don't need government help you can be a proud man and not before.

Actually, I don't personally even get the Govt subsidies on my farm because I don't meet the guidelines. You have to make less than 500,000 to qualify, but I know lots of neighbors that use it, and I'm still glad the Govt subsidizes a safe, abundant, and affordable food supply. It's food dude, you eat it.

Nevertheless, just last year the government paid out about $15 billion in income support or price guarantees, which increasingly are going to the largest farms -- those with annual sales of $500,000 or more!!!!

John Phipps of Chrisman, Ill., harvested nearly 170,000 bushels of corn and soybeans last year on two square miles of fertile soil. He grossed nearly $500,000, putting his farm in the nation's top 3 percent. Still, he received $120,000 in subsidies.

"It's embarrassing," Phipps said. "My government is basically saying I am incompetent and need help."

Yet to Congress and federal agricultural officials, Phipps and his wife, Jan, are struggling family farmers. Last year, the government sent the Phippses a check for $120,000. Thousands of similar checks arrived throughout the Corn Belt, even as many farmers had bumper crops.

"Being labeled as a family farmer immediately qualifies me as someone who needs help," he said. "Name one other business like that -- there are none."

Phipps resents the images used to evoke sympathy for farmers. "I think they do us more harm than good," he said as he scrambled to finish his harvest. "I don't think farmers are any more special than anyone else; lots of people work hard and don't get help. Why should farmers get special treatment?"

You have to make less than half a million you say to get farmer welfare you say??? That is so funny and so wrong. There are people who earn billions that get this welfare.

Do people know who the largest private American landowner is?

Ted Turner .........and he gets a subsidy........Should he?

It's time to cut the ties that bind.

Vote no to farm subsidies,we can't afford these welfare farmers anymore.

Jill Banswell reporting during the Haiti earthquake said the most devastating thing she witnessed was helicopters flying overhead with large food drops slung from the aircraft. She reported this was one of the most grievous times because she knew she would be called out to report on where the food was dropped. Her eyewitness accounts relayed a message of savage disregard for care of human life, and a primal survival mode would overtake the Haitian people when the food touched down. After 12 food drops, Jill told her superiors she would no longer cover or report on such behavior. During 4 of the 12 drops a person was killed as people tried to get food. At every drop children and elderly were beaten back and denied food, many with broken limbs as the only thing to show for the effort. This food was flour. Not steaks and Taters. Not all the delights we know when we hunker down on a juicy burger, but small sacks of flour. They killed each other for it. Try to transpose the participants, and it becomes easy to be thankful our Govt subsidizes a safe, affordable, and very abundant food supply.

No One can believe you as you say half a mill is the cut off point when in fact there is no income guidelines at all. You have no facts or numbers to support yourself. Everyone else is giving numbers and actual data and you are just using emotion instead of logic. You are just lying and have nothing truthful to say.

The facts are--
The checks go out regardless of whether a farmer is planting anything. It doesn’t matter whether the harvest was good or bad. Economic need isn’t a factor, either. The payments are calculated on a complex formula based on past farm acreage and average yield — not current market prices.

Not only may farmers collect the money without planting any crops, it is not necessary for them to be farmers at all. What matters is what was once grown on the land, how much was grown and who presently owns the land.

It’s extra income for farmers that really is not tied to helping their production or providing more and cheaper food or being environmentally safer.. It’s basically a gift from the government. That is the truth.

Nice article Abe. It is easy to find out the facts about farm welfare if one is willing to look and read. Turd has his way of just saying things with nothing to back it up. And really how can you believe a man that calls himself turd and believes in turd fences? Here is a good video about farming.

More lies and no facts to back them up huh? Farmers are wealthy, the U.S. food supply is not remotely at risk — and yet the government still piles on the subsidies.

Perhaps God made the farmer, as Paul Harvey says. But does the federal taxpayer have to make him rich?
They do need to get shopping money from earned income and not the USA or State government!

Harps was busy because, as you say it is food, and everyone eats food so a food store is busy. It is certainly not because the price of food is cheap LOL. You could double the price(and farm subsidies are doing that anyway) and people have to eat and they will pay it. A free market economy was what this country was born of with taxes being fair for all and not going to people that have no need of welfare. To be a farmer is to say I need help I can't make it on my own like everyone else.

So using your thinking, we should wait until our food supply is at risk and then help out? That would probably work out if we were talking about anything other than food. Look at some examples of countries short on food. We don't need riots and killings over food in our country. So lets just keep paying that very small portion of the tax bill that keeps our food supply robust, affordable, safe and available. If you really are upset about the other guy getting the money, then get you a farm and get started. It's food. We all eat it. We can't stop eating it.
