SOMEBODY has to collect those subsidies for not growing anything. God bless the farmer...and God bless ADM, who all the farmers work for.

Odd: a little later, lois says that it's Democrats who keep spending money to farmers. If you object to farmers collecting money from the government, maybe you should let your representative know.

What was it about the Dodge' commercial, "God Made a Farmer," that stirred the souls of so many Americans during the Superbowl? Maybe it was the imagery of the dirt and grit of real America, not the white-washed concrete meccas many of us call home. Maybe for just a moment we were unplugged from our instant and superficial world and taken back to a time when we were captivated by God's creation, not what our friends were doing on Facebook.
