Unreal what non farmers get in susidies

This is Greene County, but you can check other sites I have seen properties that received money that do not even farm.

What other business owners have the same luxuries? Have a bad year and your not going to eat.

Plus we all know farmers are paid not to farm to keep supplies at a level that dictate prices. Smaller supply higher price. If the market was flooded with supply the lower demand would drive prices down. Farmers would really be crying then.

FYI, i like farmers, just not some of the tactics at hand

Re: Unreal what non farmers get in susidies

Whenever I hear about farm subsidies I think about Catch 22.

Quote:
"His specialty was alfalfa, and he made a good thing out of not growing any. The government paid him well for not growing any. Thee government paid him well for every bushel of alfalfa he did not grow. The more alfalfa he did not grow, the more money the government gave him, and he spent every penny he didn't earn on new land to increase the amount of alfalfa he did not produce. Major Major's father worked without rest at not growing alfalfa. On long winter evenings he remained indoors and did not mend harness, and he sprang out of bed at the crack of noon every day just to make certain that the chores would not be done. He invested in land wisely and soon was not growing more alfalfa than any other man in the country" (Heller, 83).
