Greed? Seriously?

A farmer makes a little money for a couple years, and that's greed?

No the greed parts come in when that individual maintains that what they are doing is great when in fact it can be bad for the tax payer, the environment, public safety or anything else that stands in the way of profit. When a company acts like that we all yell about greed but yet a farmer can do the same thing and it isn't greed?

I know that foreign countries are yell that we are not planting enough wheat, not cause shortages but driving the price up where their people can't afford to buy it. I also know that food prices here in the US have gone up.

I know the EPA is claiming environmental concerns with the land coming out of CRP.

I know farmers who raise livestock that have been hurt by corn prices which spiked because of ethanol.

I know farmers who receive subsidies which is bad for every tax payer.

I don't know one corn grower who cares one little bit about the above and defends ethanol because of money in their pockets. Sorry, that's greed. What would you call it?
