For those of you who do not understand farm subsidies, I will briefly explain in my non-farmer dialog (since I'm not a farmer). Any business that is not a farm, medical facility or law enforcement/military service is NOT NEEDED. If all shoe companies go out of business, we go without shoes, but we still survive. If all insurance or phone companies go under, we go without phones & insurance, but we still survive. If our farms go out of business, most of us will starve to death. The corruption is not on the farm, it's in our government. Someone in government makes money or is guaranteed employment every time a subsidy goes out the door of any kind. Banks & Oil companies get the best subsidies, & banks produce nothing but debt.
