Hobby we have a new title

Went to the fsa office this last week.  Lots of new personnel ------ you can tell when they are obviously scared of changing data in their computers

 

Anyway the new leadership is pushing the 2047 form-- wanted me to send one to everyone...... The one you change your address or name or SS#,,,,, or identity ...... no thats just a joke, you are more likely to suddenly become two people.........  Government employees are never capable of removing something from their computer system   🙂   So a lot of you............. well, it is just a lot of postage.......... so, I filled out a stack and left them there so those of you I know will not have to deal with this one ......... I covered it for ya..  check your email 

They emphasized wanting an email address for each producer........ now I am an experienced former entity...   I once got a second email account with a new internet provider,,,, liked em,  so I went in to my "control county" fsa office( another title that makes ya cringe)(been doing nothing for a couple of days... I figure they're still in control) .......anyway,,,. turned in the new email and went around the offices making sure the old one got removed.  

Welllll ----- I am saying this in perfect harmony,,,,,,,,, " I been two people every since" ............ made one trip into another (more experienced) county fsa office and tried to correct the issue......               Now I am two people in three different counties.......... I am a vocal ensamble with a casino show....

Still getting between 4 and 6 newsletters a week in the email room...

 

HOBBY notice the name......... Your not a grower to the usda-- like you are to your suppliers........ no sireeee bob..... Your a "Customer" who doesn't even need to produce------ so they are selling something............ I don't know what and cant figure it out but they're good at hiding it.  I got lots of paper to fill out and I can't figure out what it cost me???            ------ other than 2 days.

 

But I got ya all signed up some great email.....

Re: Hobby we have a new title

SW, I have noticed the last year+ the terminology there.

 

I have to wonder what's up not only there but most everywhere. 

 

There has to be someone some where that is pulling strings to subdivide and conquer us.

 

Every seed sales person calls us growers, so do the writers in the farm magazines, 

 

Customer, grower, etc, what ever happened to FARMER?

 

The next step in their progression, is "the help" , "slave", or SURF. 

 

BTW, sorry to hear about your split personally thingy.

Re: Hobby we have a new title

I am thinkin',,,,  I am sure comrad Ray will think that is a conspiracy thought,,,,, but I am still thinkin' until they outlaw it as hurting the environment.

I always get a smile for the folks who think politics stops at the end of the election year, or is not procticed in any of the bureaucratic offices run by white house appointees, like the Secretary of Agriculture...  but lets move on....

 

We should hold a contest among prodservistomers (That would be ag.com contributors) to guess the day, month and year that usda announces prodservistomers must have in place a contract for the sale and delivery of the commodity they wish to plant.  Or an acreage allotment to control the size of the corn pile that will soon kill off the population of the state of Iowa.  Will we call in the Chilleaain crews to save Hobby,,,,, and Ray from smothering doom... Fear not you bet we will, it would make great video for the nightly news.... maybe a round the clock vidgiouall...

For the sake of planet earth and political votes everywhere, we must control the killer surplus caused by competitive greed and the inherant flaws of constitutionally imposed competition that drives the common masses to federal assistance.

 

Isn't it that time of the month,     oh you know, when usda tells us if the pile is in its third trimester and predicts the year in which the earth is spun out of it's orbit by the corn pile covering the midwest.... Since we started raising two crops per year to pay the John Deere payment like Brazil does...

 

We are just lucky Panama is digging another set of locks to help move it all to the otherside of the world --------- actually trying to maintain "balance" in the world......

It will buy us a little bit of time until the new Mss President stops fracking around and defertilizes the midwest to save us all from the pile of doom...

 

Hobby can you see it in the distance yet.... ?

 

Have a good weekend everyone,  you too conspiracy Ray....

Re: Hobby we have a new title

At least they apparently have your multiple personalities actually "growing" in places where you farm.  Somehow, FSA misses emailing me in our control county in NC, gets it to us in VA, and evidently thinks we farm in some county in OK, too.  

 

You guys are wondering sbout the title...remember that FFA doesn't stand for " future farmers" anymore....

Re: Hobby we have a new title

ncwinn54,

 

Thanks for coming aboard,  we are in desperate need of new blood...... that is not a paracitical joke...

 

more important---- I am older than most trees around here.  and taller.... What on earth does FFA stand for now?

 

I hope this isn't leading into something that makes me change my lifestyle and demand another bathroom...... Nearly thrown in jail for going in there last time....  🙂

First, this is Kay/NC, reappearing via iPad, which would not let me log in as myself.

The Letters FFA still stand for Fiture Farmers of America, but are only embedded as initials now, in the name National FFA Organization.

Re: Hobby we have a new title

A long time ago I spent enough time on the road as a state officer

   that the "Father Farms Alone" version had some meaning.

Funniest line I ever thought of and used was in 1976 when several state officers from around

   the country attended our local chapter meeting during the week of Farmfest.

They spoke to our chapter members and then visited an adult ag class that happened to be

   meeting the same night.  Before introducing them to the room full of farmers I mentioned

   that they could relax because we weren't there to sell anything.Smiley LOL
