BOB YOU ARE DEAD WRONG LIKE USUAL. WE WILL COME OUT OF THIS MESS. THIS ADMINISTRATION IS DOING FINE.
The cure for low prices will eventually lead to high prices in which we have had in farming and ranching. Once we have high prices it will eventually lead to low prices in which farmers do not like but people buying our commodities like very much. Bob, I agree with you farmers do a lousy job in managing their risk. I will be the first to admit I am not the best but I am working at it everyday because the more I can manage the risk the less I can depend on our government. Farming and ranching is a risking business and it can be a way of life too but a person still has to know how to handle the risk in any business both on the input side and output. In any business, long term, there is no guarentee that it will succeed due to the global economy we are in.
Enjoy other people comments positive and negitive. Personnally we find a lot fault in our government but I would not like to live anywhere else in this world. I personnally lived 3 years outside of this country and when you come back it is a great relief to be living in this country of freedom.
Bob- your comments about the government are right on the money. I'm worried that it is going to get too late to do anything about it.
