Maybe instead of going after those in need we should get farm subsidies of the guvmint tit. Why do right wingers want to be dicks to show how tough they are?

Mikeyy about every govt., spends more on their farm aid programs than America does. Do a search for a change.

And I mean by GNP percentages.

In your state alone if you had your way I wonder just how many different farmers and products that would suffer and in the end cost the consumer a great deal more at the stores buying food.


Now you might be able to afford any increase but plenty of others can't. I mean isn't the mantra of the Left "help the people?"

Well sir you do a poor job at it...

Actually don't have a problem reducing or removing many of the agricultural subsidies if we also remove the restrictions that created a lot of these subsidies. But, serious question here, why do you think one of the most strategically vital sections of our economy should be targeted when there are many more dollars wasted on people who have no reason or right to expect our government to support them?

Maybe instead of exploiting elderly poor as human shields partisan Democrats ought to focus on local solutions to local problems such as donations to support meals on wheels. Oh wait, that would undercut theit basic premise that only the Federal government can solve any problem.

It is refreshing to see a Federal official like Trump's budget director express concern about the people being taxed to provide services like meals on wheels. The vision of a new utopia courtesy of an ever expanding welfare state has no room to consider the struggles of people forced to pay the bills with their taxes.

We have been shown for decades that there is huge amounts of waste in military spending. But somehow it's unpatriotic to go after military spending. Because of the fear of the word "socialism" we support a healthcare insurance industry that sucks money out of the economy that could create millions of jobs. We make a lot of bad moves as a society and it seems the right always targets people they have a preconceived notion about. When unions were strong and pay was higher there was less need for some of these programs.

So, you can't give a coherent answer again. Maybe ought to leave the vodka alone.
