Looks like it is time for me to start up my soy bean farm in Long Beach, CA. :)

When did factory workers get money from the government when Free Traitors™ closed them down?

Farmers: Learn to code.

In other words, about the same as it cost America for a few weeks intervention in Iraq.

I support this....we sure could dish it out in 2018 for financial institutes that gave nothing back!

I can do without a few goodies manufactured by our citizens.

I can’t do without eating...

If others will recall, I slammed the idea of killing U. S. manufacturing jobs when it started and all the way through.

Trump is doing things that need to be done.

I’m sure this involves corporate payouts as well. Not particularly happy about that. Things will level out. We’ll find other markets.

Citizens, learn to live on water and air and we will get rid of those greedy farmers for good.

Primitive Free Traitor™ scare tactics. We can import food, you can't build a factory over night.

In an emergency we can plant a seed and 3 months later there is a crop.

It's this kind of non thinking that will turn the USA into an agrarian country on level with Brazil.

IF we can turn factory workers into “coders” then so can farmers. We can import food too. Why are farmers special snowflakes?

It is a scam. There are more gays and lesbians than there are farmers in the workforce.

I think it should be in our defense budget, you can’t fight a war or stave off a war if your enemy knows you can’t even feed yourselves.

If we have to many farmers then we have to many farmers. Why are we subsidizing them? What happened to the free market? Why can’t food price go down increasing the demand? What’s with price supports? This is all BS. Tractor monkeys have WAY to much political influence.

Sure you can grow a grain crop in 60 days, if everything is optimum. Just answer each question for me.

What if it is needed in winter?

What if you had no moisture?

Where do farmers get the seed if they aren’t able to import?

And if they haven’t been actively farming, where do you get the farmers?

We import food then, just like toaster ovens.

And tree bark. And grass. The North Koreans eat that and look how healthy they are.

I’m not going to argue with you, some people on FR are closet libs and I expect many of them eat more than their fair share and think they are some kind of experts. Some of them sound a little—or a lot—like AOC.

How much do we pay farmers during a typical Democrat administration?
