Why not federal subsidies for our farmers and ranchers? I'm talking about the little guy here, not the large corporation farms and ranches. The Federal government has already subsidized the big three auto manufactures, bailed out the banking system, and given perks to several other larges corporations in the way of tax breaks, etc. so why not the little guy? I ranch, and most of the small ranchers and farmers that I know make just enough to survive until the next season. We're not out here raping and pillaging the land to make a million bucks, just trying to live our chosen lifestyle without a bunch of government officials breathing down our necks trying to tell us how to do something that we've already been doing for years. Most ranchers and farmers I know consider themselves to be caretakers of the land, trying to preserve it for future generations. We rotate our pastures and our crops so as not to over graze or under nourish the land. We survive on very little and very seldom ask for handouts, but occasionally it would be nice to see our government step up and say " You guy's are doing your best to try to keep the world fed, and we'd like to help you out!" Instead, it's the squeaky wheel, i.e. larger corporations with lots of lobbyists in D.C. that seem to get all the grease! Oh well, absolute corruption, corrupts absolutely, so I doubt things will change! Ford did not take part in the Obama bail out. FYII ranch, and most of the small ranchers and farmers that I know make just enough to survive until the next season"Life liberty and the pursuit of happiness, not the guarantee, at some point the 22 Trillion in National debt with come due and your give me free shit bill will come with it.
The only problem is that, without subsidies, it would take less than five years time for the majority of European farms to face bankruptcy and become completely dependent on the big corps like Unilever or Monsanto. Things would get even worse then, and anybody not convinced of that needs only look at what happened and happens in South America. Really, what happened in South America that was the direct cause of those seed companies?Remember IN the USA companies have the same legal rights as people *less one, they are not allowed a vote in public elections*The EU farmer is so weak that with out Social payments they would all go broke, there is your answer , when you create dependence you kill the workers incentive to produce more and be more efficient.
Should this practice continue? "NoLet the markets be regulated with more common sense regulations and let those that farm to produce our protein and grains compete . End food stamp program as well, get the lazy fucks off their fat asses and back to a job.
"Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HlTxGHn4sH4With the US Economy at best weak and in the last qrt GDP dropped a full 1 %. It must be the time to jerk the US worker by the wallet again. UPdate,,,,, US Economy drops by 2.9 %Policies of failure
I'm not crazy about it, but it was really the best solution. "DaniReally what exactly in your humble and informed Opinion, did this solve?
Do you even know why this is being done? Or is this more assuming and speculation on your part?"You seem to have the answer do share, why is this President Sending in the US Military to that shit whole called Iraq.
The POTUS sent fighters to fly over Iraq as a precautionary measure. Do you, Melman, have access to NSA and CIA information, as the POTUS does? No? Then reserve your virulent criticism to yourself. Really, darn and I served in the US Army. In that role It was confirmed that WE fight to defend the rights of all Americans to these ideals, LIFE , Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, with those rights codified in the US Constitution, one of those being the RIGHT to freedom of speech.I am just exercising my rights, I don't need your permission, nor will I ever request it of you or anyone else.I think he acted "stupidly".As for the NSA or CIA, I also don't need those reports to decide that putting US War Fighters in Harms way again for this region of the world is stupid.We have more oil at home then we know what to do with, Canada wants to spend Billion in the USA shipping theirs , WE have the ability to make the ME a very unimportant part of the world, IF only we had the will to drill at home.As for those on the left, just do as you say you want us all to do, stop using OIL , Gas and all other petro based products and see a glut in over supply happen.
Guess I am in the minority here. I'm ok with that. So am I. I think that both sides of the US body Politic agreed on going into Iraq.
If we hadn't have fucked around in Iraq trying to take their oil in the first place there wouldn't have been a mess made. Really, you believed that the US went there to capture the oil supply, got any kind of proof?
He has just ordered 300 US War Fighters to Iraq. What the fuck for?
