    Glad farmers can take advantage of government programs such as:
    Farm subsidies
    Farm bill
    Water law
    Reservoirs for water management
    Crop insurance
    Farm Distaster Relief
    Soil & Water Conservation Service
    County Extension Services

      Doc, if your going to have government programs, at least have them in favor of the folks who actually produce the food we require to exist! Plus, why shouldn’t they be allowed to manage water, apply for relief following a diaster, or seek advice or get data from a County Extension Office? I suspect there will be many NON-FARMERS lined up for diaster relief after this hurricane blows through!

      In the end, I despise big government but if government is going to help anybody, I’d rather it be a PRODUCER than a parasite. Where I come from, farmers are called PRODUCERS and parasites, well they suck the blood out of any warm body they can latch onto!

        I’m all for it too. Many on this site love to forget that the government is useful in many situations.

      • GiveMeLiberty

        You make a good point Doc. The government does have a place at the table in some situations. But notice I said ‘a place’ at the table in ‘some situations’, not chairing the table in all situations! This government has decided to build the table, set the table, and literally run the table….NO THANK YOU!

        We (American citizens), are incredibly more productive, innovative, and free-thinking with them OUT of the way!

        BTW – great job to the folks who put this video together. When I was a boy, I had the honor of working on a dairy farm for a summer! It was the absolute hardest job I ever had and as I look back, one of the most rewarding. To all the family farmers out there, THANK YOU for all your hard work and incredible sacrifices!

      • Doc Sarvis

        I think you short change the farmers work saying that the government is doing the building, setting, and running. The work of farming (and other endeavors) involves much more than these government rolls. Many programs the farmers can participate in or not.

        GiveMeLiberty, you have confused comrade ‘d’ with someone who cares about America or has plans to remain free. Comrade ‘d’ thinks that ‘all good things come from Uncle Scam.’ Other than the military (which is being gutted and wasted by what’s-his-name), EVERYTHING Uncle Scam touches eventually turns into human waste (manure, polluted fertilizer, septic tank sludge, etc.).
        Here’s a challenge for you, GiveMeLiberty. Try to get comrade ‘d’ and his bunkies to investigate and learn how many farmers are addicted to government subsidies and get filthy RICH at our expense. Those yahoos make it rough on small farmers who care about America and America’s future.
        You might remind comrade ‘d’ that SOME of those RICH farmers are legally known as CORPORATIONS. Good luck, as it tends to take an act of God to make a utopian understand anything or THINK.

    My Grandparents and Some aunts and uncles were farmers. I would help out when I visited.
    It was fun to see some of the better machinery and ways the farmers do things now that was different 40 years ago. It was fun to see how much is still the same.
    It is still hard work, but it looks like these guys can handle it.

    Government should leave farmers and everybody alone, because every time they do, production decreases and lives ruins. Governments and their regulations only serves themselves and causes bubbles and depressions.
