Unacceptable! 05/16/2013 @ 5:11pm This is unacceptable. As a farmer, God made me on the 8th day and its my God given right to drive a fancy new truck every year and pay $13K per acre for my neighbor's farmland. These non-farm people need to bow down immediately and send me even more subsidies and let me burn even more of their food up into ethanol! Don't they know that I am an "Agvocate" and a member of the landed gentry that deserves subsidized credit (FCS)? What I really need is for the taxpayer to pay the premium on "Revenue Protection" from "Shallow Losses" that let's me roll the dice and take on even more risk with no consequences whatsoever! Only in America (or the former Soviet Union)!

Re: Re: Unacceptable! 07/07/2013 @ 7:59am Why such anger? It is your right to take a stand against something that you believe is wrong, but you should try to use facts instead of opinion to make your point. AND your argument might be taken more seriously if you would leave the anger and resentment out of it.
