farm programs do NOT bailout farmers.

There are some on here spreading the horse manure that "farm subsidies keep farmers afloat"  NOT SO.  

 

Here`s Mike Stamp...I never met him, probably wouldn`t like him, but there is no dispute he was a "good farmer"...hey he won an award!

Now we all can agree Mike Stamp was a go-getter, expert marketer, risk manager, really good agronomist ...right?

 

 

Well, ol` Mike went broke, the farm programs did NOT guarantee him a profit.

I say good riddance!   But, my point is that the government farm programs did NOT save him.  The government does want farmers like Mike Stamp though, greedy as hell, fencerow to fence, screw `em all and the easy ones twice...but the government didn`t save him.

Re: farm programs do NOT bailout farmers.

BA, you know the score, I know the score, and most of America probably understands how you get more of something when you subsidize it. That is why the so called "war on poverty" has been a misquided progressive misadventure, and we end up with more poor people, not less.

 

Little humpy likes to pee on your leg....just like one of those stupid poodle pets that older women without kids or grandkids love to have around. Just about as irritating, too.

I guess thats me

 

 

Farm programs are not designed guarantee a profit only a yearly guaranteed form of income. It was not designed to support farmers making poor finacial decsions.

 

I f  a farmer is in poor condition today after the best few years in history  its due to his own design mainly poor financial decsions

99k/year. How is a beginner suppose to compete with that? Pathetic. Yet hobby calls the young conservative a hypocrit if he doesn't opt out of the program and leave his 5-7k on the table. Hypocrits.

Re: farm programs do NOT bailout farmers.

You can really dish out that horse manure can't you! Wish we could check out your welfare total but you hide your name and your location. It might not "bail you out" but it certainly makes the pot sweeter when things don't go are you planned!

Re: farm programs do NOT bailout farmers.

Schurrbart, your problem is that you are a "bomb thrower", see the difference is I SHOWED the liberal horse manure, you just twist someone`s nipple and run out the door.   Bruce, will paste something written by Paul Krugman with the implication the "God has spoken...no need to listen to any dissenting opinions"  ...which is all fine, it`s a free country.  But don`t you guys want to actually use facts in backing up your world views?

In a very ironic twist

Krugman brings up, today actually, the very topic that you assert.  "facts" that don't prove out, but that yet are hung on to firmly  for other or periphrial (political, essentially) reasons:
