    If They Only Worked That Hard To Cut Spending...

    Ya, I'm talking about Democrats.

    Stabenow talked to farm owner Len Gustafson about how, with the help of funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Gustafson's Farm has become a huge success.  The owners say that over the past five years, they've managed to grow their farm from about 10 cows to nearly 200 cows, and they now produce 80,000 pounds of beef a year.

    Hmmm, that's roughly growing the herd by two head per month.  Nothing really all that amazing about that, but, congrats to Mr. Gustafson all the same.

    Government funding covered 60 percent of an $80,000 project to improve their beef operation with fencing and a new water system.  Len says the more cows drink, the more they eat, and heavier cows make better meat.

    Holy crap!  We taxpayers are subsidizing over half of this private businesses improvements?  Ahhh, so there's why Sen. Stabenow, Chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee is in the U.P.  It's a campaign photo-op.

    Or is it?

    I guess not.

    Stabenow is working on a new farm bill to include plans to create a safety net for the risks involved in farming...including drought.

    "We don't want any farmer losing their whole farm because of a few days of bad weather or because of something else they can't control," the Senator says.

    Aw ferchrissakes.  Sen. Stabenow, you and your fellow Democrats don't create "safety nets," they're gottdamned hammocks.

    Debbie... What does taxpayers picking up the tab on some farmers "upgrades" have to do with drought?  Not one damn thing.  It's very much like those not so 'shovel ready' Porkulus projects that you Democrats and three Senate RINO's are responsible for.  It's frivolous decadent waste of taxpayers coerced monies that is crony capitalism to buy votes.

    And, Mr. Gustafson, you look like good yupper folk just trying to get along and make a buck, but dammit, where does this moocher society end?  Your words Mr. Gustafson...

    "It's been a dry month.  The pastures are down; we couldn't have kept this many cattle without the program," says Gustafson.

    Didja ever hear of getting buy on less instead of running to the gummint trough?  Ya, I'll be sure to think of you when I'm buying a steak and all the hidden cost added to it for your private business upgrades.  Thanks for perpetuating the Democrats Socialist Utopia.

    One more thing Sen. Stabenow, with respect to your deep commitment to Climate Change... why would you be so interested in saving cow farms that produce those eeevil cow farts ruining the planet that we are all repeatedly told about?

    People have been farming for thousands of years, yet it's not until Ol' Clown Face comes around with a briefcase full of taxpayer money that a Michigan farm can be successful. Problems with droughts? Ever heard of farming somewhere more temperate? Or maybe not farming and doing something more efficient? Holy s#it, what a concept. I think I learned it in undergrad Econ. What the hell was the heat miser doing during that class?

    This is some Big Gummint and Big Agri payola were talking about here in Michigan.  Oh, just to the tune of an averaged $290,000,000.00 per year.

    And think of all them thar congresscrittes that depend on these farmers gettin' their welfa, err, uh-hum, assistance too.

    Ain't crony Corporatism just grand...
