Farm prices are high. Farm land is selling at a premium. The family farmer died decades ago. Farmers with millions of dollars of net worth don't need or deserve federal subsidies.
Oz, ever been to Chino, CA? They have farms right downtown! Cattle farms, no dirt, concrete, cattle can't move more than a foot either way. Dairy farms, too. HUGE businesses, miles of them. Amazing, yup, they need subsidizing. I was always curious if the guys working there were illegal aliens or not.
Hopefully we will see a "Big Oil" cartoon, too. We actually subsidize them, afterall, they only rack up profits in the BILLIONS each quarter.
