For the record, with regard to the current farm bill. (Only technically SFW)

Just to make it clear:

  • I am assuming that the current farm bill is a huge pile of pigsh*t.  Only less useful as fertilizer.
  • I have not researched it to determine how the current farm bill is a huge pile of pigsh*t, largely because every other farm bill in my lifetime has been a huge pile of pigsh*t and after a while in this business you learn to spot trends.
  • I am also assuming that none of you need to be told that the current farm bill is a huge pile of pigsh*t.
  • Do any of you have the bribe money necessary to make a viable counter-offer that would set this huge pile of pigsh*t on fire?  No?  Don’t feel bad; neither do I.
  • I’ll be less mildly cynical about the situation as soon as I hear a viable plan for setting this huge pile of pigsh*t on fire that does not include the implicit step And then a miracle happens.  Which I privately anticipate will be a factor in every solution that gets proposed.

Sorry, folks. The agricultural industry has, as it has been put, “awesome iconography.” And don’t they just know it, too.

    Why do Republicans have a majority in the House if not to fix/kill giant fubar legislation like the farm bill? I like farmers as much as the next guy, but, put a cap on the size of the farms that can receive aid, move food stamps to stand alone legislation, save billions. Everyone says they hate the farm bill, left-right-center, and yet every time it comes up it passes.

      Small agricultural operations are more harmed than helped by these giant piles of pigsh*t.
      It’s large agribusiness concerns, which make large political donations, who are happy as pig in sh*t about the giant pile of pigsh*t.
      Which is why these giant piles of pigsh*t keep passing.

    Pigsh*t smells better.

    congressmen + rope + lamp posts = solution. Oh, right: the ‘miracle’ in this case would be a population largely capable of the simple mathematics involved…….
