3. Iowan here...68% of all bailout moneys went to the top 10% of farm operations including corporates

 

some guy in Brazil I think it is .. walked off with millions.. little farmers are getting kicked in the teeth.. the big operations are going to try an gobble up their land for next to nothing.. Trump is killing the small farmer

4. Hopefully there's a lot more smart farmers like this guy.

 

They must see that Trump cares nothing for them or their families.

10. Maybe someone whispered in Trump ear

 

That his tariffs might really help the big guy get bigger and just think of all the kick backs (ops I mean campaign contributions) they could give Trump. Plus as they get bigger the competition gets smaller and they can increase prices that much easier. It's a win for Trump and them and a loss to all the rest of us and that is the Republican way!!

11. Hardly surprising...

 

I figured this was just another swipe to let BigAG buy off bankrupt small farmers at pennies on the dollar.

6. Hey,these so called payments

 

are based on total dollar sales of the Farm Operation. If you do not do a half million a year in Corn Sales,you get nadda.

So,when JBS Industries(Swift/Eckridge)gets 62 million,you know what the real story is.
