I drove past this between Salida and Cotopaxi on State Highway 50 in Colorado. I had to turn around and tell whoever that I stood with them totally assuming I was correct. I was and got the biggest hug of appreciation for doing so.

From my understanding, there are close to 3000 children being held around this country after being seized from their parents at the border.

Many will never see their Mom and Dad again because Republicans are totally evil.

You bastards!


Harvesting Another Windfall

A sports team owner, a financial firm executive and residents of Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia were among 2,702 millionaire recipients of farm payments from 2003 to 2006 — and it's not even clear they were legitimate farmers, congressional investigators reported.

There are many who don't need these subsidy's but if the criteria is met there's not much you can say except change it.

If you know anyone who farms or even if you don't go to the Farm Subsidy Database and look around. It's quick and easy and there you will find there are some who farm who are bringing home plenty more than what's harvested out of the fields.

Some guys back in the cornfield get a little testy if you bring this up to them and generally they're the ones who don't need it.


  1. It seems no matter how much you have, you're still willing to take a handout.

  2. Especially some of these guys PM.

  3. I did some extensive stories on this in the past because this is corporate welfare! Many of those that benefit are multi millionaires, corporations, and politicians.
    Any real farmers that are hurting are helped by Willie Nelson. Average farmers like average Americans are on their own.
    I might have told you in the past but I am a farmer by vocation and have managed every type. I went to and lived at an Aggie. If you do not inherit a farm you can not get into it today.
    Land is so expensive! I would say it is a tough living but having worked more than 100 hours per week I will say I never worked a minute.

  4. Awesome show on NOW on farm subsidies. PBS showed an indie documentary called "King Corn." that was incredible also.
