Would you rather go back to the days when farmers really DID get price support payments because the price was below the cost of prouction? The days when USDA bought up commodities and stored them in places that were payed for by the tax payers?

All we ever wanted was a market for what we grow and we have it with ethanol. Simple as that. Growing that high priced corn has pulled acres away from other crops causing them to all be profitable to grow too. I'm fed up with people thinking we're a bunch of brainless dirty hicks with our hands out,who can't take care of ourselves without big daddy government propping us up.

Nothing would make me happier than to have the government completely out of Ag,no DCP,no ACRE,no CRP,not even subsidized insurance,which is about the ONLY thing to survive in both pending versions of the farm bill. But the plain fact is,the government doesn't pay for what the government doesn't control. You keep the government totally out of my hair and my business and you can eliminate the USDA entirely as far as I'm concerned. Freedom in exchange for loss of a third of my property taxes,I'll take that deal all day long!

Trouble is,even if they DID,there'd still be brainless idiots on talk radio and writing books claiming we were all getting rich off government money just to hear themselves and make political hay. So believe what you want to. You're gonna anyway.
