Biting the Hand that Feeds Us?

May 09, 2011

   I wanted to know what can other farmers and their families do for these farmers whose lives and livelihoods were sacrificed in order to save others more important? Does no one understand how devastating this will be to the economy of these communities and the economy of this nation? This impacts everything from oil to banks to food and the list goes on. These farmers spend combined millions, perhaps billions of dollars each year in order to make a living. A farmer produces one crop a year for his paycheck. How shortsighted can this government be? Just when our economy needs the input of dollars, they have taken out billions! This should be extremely upsetting to every farmer to see how unimportant he is to the very people he feeds. It's never a good idea to bite the hand that feeds you. Thank you.
