Perverted, and not sexy: farm subsidies

just say no to subsidies

just say no to subsidies

Here’s a good little video short on the audacity of farm subsidies. What are they? Why do we still have them? Why can’t we get rid of these things? They cost taxpayers Billion$, distort the market, help producers (land owners) who don’t really need help, and have out-lived their usefulness by several decades.

The site also has a good list of addition links to other resources on the issue. Tell Big Ag to grow up and take care of itself. Support your LOCAL farmer.
