Yea I do have a clue. If I start an earth moving business I better make enough to pay my overhead to include equipment plus profit. But a farmer isn't bound by those rules. If I open a store I have to make enough to stay in business but a farmer doesn't have to. I didn't call it welfare. I said it's a government handout and it is. You don't have to farm, you can be a lot of other things besides a farmer. I darn sure do know where my food comes from. No I'm not a hippy. Nor am I organic or a vegetarian.

The biggest family farmers around here all drive new trucks, have nice equipment and got over 1 million. Guy I was renting to has dumped over 500K into equipment in the last year alone, 349K. I know he ad one heck of a year last year and isn't doing bad this year. I darn sure know what it cost to start up on a small scale because I'm doing it. Right now. I think without government money I will be able to show a small profit next year. Now if I can start up, pay for tractors and such without debt, and make a profit in my 3rd year guess I'm just a better manager than those other guys?????? No that's not it. It's because I chose to do this without help I have to manage better than the other guys. I know these guys. I'm not any better than they are. They are taking advantage of a situation that is costing me, you and the rest of tax payers money. I know there are many other areas the government could and should cut back spending on. This is just one of many.

Seems to me that I recall a man, giving a speech who said "Ask not what my country can do for me, ask what I can do for my country". Seems we as a people have fogotten that.

And we keep saying how bad the youngsters are today....wonder where they learned it from?

You sir are the one without a clue.
