A little reminder

Here we go. The Farm Bill fury is out enough so that there is even a little MSM about it, albeit buried instead of front and center. The better nuggets are here. And as a savvy reader emailed me "It's a scary day in the neighborhood when Mike Johanns is a reasonable voice. Kill me now, Billy!"

Watch this. Keep in mind that Washington, Jefferson and Madison were essentially farmers at heart.

Bottom line? Neither Family Farmers, Anybody who grows fruits or vegetables in the U.S., nor Constitutional Framers are dumb.

You can keep your $.99 Value meal and pay $4.00 a pound for grapes, beans, fruits vegetables the way it's going. So it's great for McDonalads and Yum! Brands, but it sucks for both me and you.
