The BOOKER Empire strikes back

This just in...stressing unity of course.  :=)

The big opportunity today is to go to your local FSA office and have the CED change your "902" form so that is shows your race as Black. Native or Asian won't do. Legislation cleared both the House and Senate Ag committees yesterday to write off all Black farmer loans from USDA as of 1-1-2021. Either direct loans or guaranteed!  I’m wondering if this includes CCC grain loans? $5 Bil appropriated.

Thanks to Cory Booker, a man for unity and our new farmer friendly Senator from New Jersey.

Re: The BOOKER Empire strikes back

Libs won`t defend this, other than a "Well yooooooou like CFAP paaaaayments!!!!"  or the classic reply of  "bone spurs!". 

I`ll make this about farm programs in general to prolong the thread being cancel cultured.   Politics (the 2 party system)  something the Founders warned against (if professor Bruce sees this) there`ll surely be a 1619 history lesson coming on "the Founders loved a 2 party system) .  

The `95 Farm Bill was supposed to be the last one.  But ag economics is cyclical and when it`s the down part of the cycle the party in power doesn`t want to preside over a "farm crisis" so they shovel us money.  And there`s the cheap food policy.

This time those in power have a intense indifference towards the countryside, any aid will have "green strings" or a strategically targeted system of payments that will reward those deemed politically beneficial.   Look at all the billionaires that come out of the communist country of China. 

So identify as a transgender pygmy and get cash to no-til and put solar panels on your hog barns and you`ll never run out of dough.

Re: The BOOKER Empire strikes back

Haven't we seen articles recently on SF about how the racist FSA local offices don't approve USDA loans for black farmers?  So what good will forgiving non-loans do?

If black farmers were not treated equally, they should be compensated. But the governments "one size fits all" remedies usually turn out to be "one size fits none".

Maybe if they did something like that Syngenta lawsuit, where some law firm figures out the total number of types of discrimination experienced, then each black farmer can submit his evidence that he was excluded from some program or denied a loan, then the law firm adds up all the damages legitimately claimed, doubles it to cover their fee, and sends the bill to the USDA.  USDA reviews the claims, and if they agree they're legitimate, sends a check to the law firm, who distributes the claim money back to the farmers.

Won't be perfect, but would be fairer than anything Washington comes up with. (Of course, I am assuming "fairness" is the goal. I'm probably wrong on that).

Re: The BOOKER Empire strikes back

my thoughts exactly........ maybe mr Booker can lead a congressional delegation of under privileged Americans to China and demand that China pay threat money to African American Government workers disenfranchised by Chinese government workers researching their "illegal" GMO seed technology stolen from us.  Sooner or later our folks are going to have to take responsibility for their elected officials and their own financial opportunities.  Black or white or paisley.

Re: The BOOKER Empire strikes back

Obama got by with threatening usda into paying every minority that ever dreamed of farming but wasn't born into it.

wasn't it 50k per head with no questions asked??

Can a senator get er done?   Or is this his first step to being in the Oval Office?  Playing the winning hand from the past.
