Yes, the Ag bill is always a disgrace. Supported many times by constituents that are always fooled by the demise of the poor farmers. This country has so many socialist tendencies it's enough to make the Europeans envious. Farmers, defense, health care, the new Green peeps, and so many other highly lobbied interests.

It's getting to the point where we'll have the worst of everything while paying the most. (more like mediocre and average).

Our agricultural industry today is a good example of greed and graft. The alternative energy industry has become the new progressive agenda for a more expensive, and very inefficient society. The irony of this all, many of these things would not even be possible if not for the huge growth in our existing energy industry. Fracking, more oil, less dependence, more jobs, etc...

Program by program, this country has to be rebuilt from scratch. By that I don;t mean eliminating agencies willy nilly. I mean a real, comprehensive look under the hood at this corrupted society. We need both a President and a Congress with ball$$ to do that. We have neither today.
