Developers produce precious little of any long-term use.
So you consider houses, shopping malls, industrial parks, office parks, etc. to be of "little long term use?" Amazing.
permanently destroying farmland.
Again so what? there isn't anything sacred about farmland. Before it was farmland it was prairie or forest. Just in case you didn't realize it, "champ," The country didn't come with big chunks of farmland. farmland was converted from something else. Are you some kind of tree hugger or something? Because if you're not, you ought to change your tune because you're sure beginning to sound like one.
Go ahead and get E.Coli with your food from Mexico, champ.
Now this is just plain bullsh!t. When I go to the grocery store I buy pineapples from Costa Rica, limes from Mexico, grapes and asparagus from Chile, etc. and you know what "champ?" I've never gotten E. Coli. I have no idea where the chicken, pork, or beef I eat comes from, and I bet you don't either. One thing I won't buy is overpriced "organic" crap that's grown locally - more tree hugger nonsense.
By definition, this tax law was put into place to ease the burden on soemone who is going into agriculture,
Once again you're wrong. The law was put into place to shift the burden from one set of taxpayers to another.
which is a boom/bust enterprise, at times with crops entirely dependent on the weather
As Harry Truman once said, "If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen."
You call yourself a conservative but pay little heed to conservation.
Conservation is not even vaguely like conservatism. In fact, unbridled conservation is one of the sacred comandments of the loony left - Earth F!rst, "greenspace," etc.
But like I said, I hope you enjoy your imported food tainted with God knows what,
I enjoy every bite. And this "contaminated" crap is more of your bullshit - It's contaminated with nothing. You want contamination stories? Read about the peanutbutter plant that cranked out contaminated peanutbutter that went into hundreds of products right here in the USA.
pretending youre more conservative than anyone else.
First off, "champ" you need to learn how to debate without insult. Second off "champ," it's pretty obvious that you're really a redistributionist (another term for liberal) who thinks that his niche, unlike everyone else's niche, is really worthy of special government favors, so I guess that does make me more conservative than you.
Its obvious you havent even set your hands on a plow.
First, you say this like it's a bad thing. Like "putting you hands on a plow" gives you some special insight. Well let me say I've never been a welfare recipient either, but that doesn't mean that I can't criticize welfare. I've never been a Kongressman, but I feel competent to criticze them too.
And one last thing. I'm proud to say that I'm not a farmer, although you're wrong about the plow crap just like everything else you've posted. My grandparents' generation mostly had farms, and I got tapped for many chores on my grandparent's farm and my great aunt and uncles' farms and running the tractor was one of them.
Libertarian free trade garbage but thanks anyway for playing
Libertarianism the godless religion of I me my mine
The religion of atomistic individualism
Good post, GA. Thanks for bringing moral and logical clarity (always a dangerous thing to do) into the discussion.
