I can only speak to my family members who farm, but they despise any unemployment or food stamps or welfare programs, but they get huge checks to not plant crops and talk about all the family farms that would go under if federal farm subsidies ever stop. They also buy new campers (kids show cows) and new huge dualy pickups and. Farm equipment at the end of the year to ensure they pay no taxes.
I was born and raised on a farm..Man you really hate farmers. Did a farm kid steal your GF in high school or something?

Was born in a completely different state. Parents live in a farm town in the Midwest. Know many who take those sweet subsidies. Got my masters many years ago. No pell grant here. Enjoy those sweet handouts I provide via my federal taxes.Have you ever left Florida? Ever set foot on a farm? Are you still in college or is it HS?
At this point, he's probably looking for a graceful exit from this conversation that doesn't exist for him.Then educate me as to why subsidies for farmers aren’t handouts.
What handouts? Wtf are you attempting to talk about?Was born in a completely different state. Parents live in a farm town in the Midwest. Know many who take those sweet subsidies. Got my masters many years ago. No pell grant here. Enjoy those sweet handouts I provide via my federal taxes.
You don’t understand the purpose and economics of why subsidies exist, yet you think I want out of your ignorant bitch-fest? I’ll stick around for the entertainment.At this point, he's probably looking for a graceful exit from this conversation that doesn't exist for him.
Farmers have had their hands extended to the govt for my entire lifetime.
He knows it, too. He's either in an ag related industry or has relatives that farm.
