Letter: Bail out farmers? Yes
Infrastructure, veterans benefits, security — none of this matters if we don’t have food. Farmers are gamblers — big time.
Do I plant, or is it going to frost?
Do I plant? What if it doesn’t rain?
What if it rains too much; can I harvest my crop?
Don’t bad mouth help for farmers on a full stomach. Or are you about to eat?
I challenge you to go 48 hours with no food.
Even if you grow your own food, where do you think seeds come from? Seed farmers.
OK, enough. Gonna go eat supper.
