WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama plans to create a special advisory council to recommend ways to boost the economic outlook and quality of life for the estimated 60 million people who live in rural areas of the U.S., a White House official said.
Obama was expected to sign an executive order Thursday establishing the White House Rural Council and naming Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, of Iowa, to be its chairman.

Suggestion: Abolish the EPA and make many, many rural people very happy!
More of those shovel ready jobs for sure! Probably time to hire some ACORN staffers.
The recommendation of this panel will be that all us citizens in rural areas be relocated to "sustainable communities"......you just watch.
This is going to work out to be pure unadulterated UN-based Agenda 21 crap. I think that after we tar and feather a bunch of 'em and hang a few more, they'll get the message: not welcome here.
Biden did such a great job with the “Middle Class Council.” He instantly solved all of our middle class problems and prosperity returned. Let’s repeat it for rural dwellers.
Let’s “regulate dust” so nobody can grow anything.
I’d like to personally slap each and every moron who voted for Omoslem.
0bama needs to create a “Council on Why I’m a Dirty Moslem.”
I always liked the way Jack Pulford, the faro dealer in “The Shootist” put it: “My friend, you have two ways to leave this establishment; immediately or dead.”
I still have the shirt I made to wear in the fall of 2008. Guess it's time to dig it out again.
I like that, I’ll be using it. ;>)
“The Shootist” has some of the best movie quotes ever. Worth watching just to hear them.
Thanks, I’ll see if I can rent it. I’ve seen it but it’s been years. I love anything with John Wayne.
BTW... I also like your James Howell quote very much. ;>)
Stalinist five year plan.
I’ll betcha a whole bunch of those $50,000 Wannabe Black Farmers can’t wait to get in on this.
cripplecreek, that is beautiful.
So, if we ever head your way, do you have room for me to park my Airstream near the water? ;>)
Seriously, that looks very peaceful.
What happened to the boondoggle that is,or was, the Appalachian Regional commission?
Lots of water in Michigan. Its why the green weenies are trying to drive us out.
How much is THIS new government program going to cost the taxpayer (or more correctly, the taxpayer’s descendents)?
Just in time for reelection.
He must have conveniently discovered that 99% of rural America lives in a food desert—that is, a mile or more from a supermarket selling fresh fruits and vegetables. (The horror!)
I live in rural GA. I was driving the other day with my 14 yr. old son and his friend. At a stop light the car in front of us had an Obama sticker on the back and an Oregon license plate. Out of the back I hear, “Boy, that guy must be lost! You don’t drive with an Obama sticker around here.”
Just about everyone around here has fruits and veggies right out their backdoor.
They’ll look for ways to apply Section 8 rent money to urban disfunctionals in order to send them to rural areas, to spread the multi-kulti joy around.
My Tivo grabbed “The Shootist” from AMC the other day. Like you, I hadn’t watched it in many years. I like Wayne a lot and particularly like great westerns and the closing of the frontier. It seems like shortly after that when many of our national problems began.
Dems pretending interest in the rural areas? They’re clueless. A couple years ago some lib — a Code Pink spokesidiot, I think — was on a rant talking to Laura Ingraham. Laura asked her something about “the heartland of America”. Spokesidiot asks, “What’s ‘the heartland’?”
Thank God! We redneck bitter clingers are finally saved!
This is so ridiculous. Most state’s now have their own ‘economic councils’ and in fact, a state that I own farm land in, just had some group do a economic study in the very rural area that my farm is in about 6 years ago. It cost the state millions of dollars and nothing...zip,zero,nada has ever come of it. In fact, when I contacted some of the folks a year ago(including a sitting congressman...Bennie Thompson)) inquiring about what came of it...no-one ever called me back.
My guess is that they want to find more ways to take more money from the rural areas for our ever increasing marxist government.
Yep. That’ll get this God-Fearing, Bible-Toting, Gun-Loving Patriot to vote for you. Not.
I fail to see how anything he has to offer would enhance my life, either! :)
Awesomeness. I could live my entire life and be content to never leave the midwest. One of my great grandfathers came from Austria and settled in Benoit. Another great great grandfather came from Germany and settled in Mancelona Michigan.

With a Captain for every block!
My family of origin, too. Austria to upstate rural New York, to Milwaukee, WI. By the 70’s we all started moving further afield and never looked back. If you’ve ever been to Germany, Wisconsin’s geography is eerily similar.
It’s just such a pretty state, politics aside, of course! :)
My ears perked up right away, having read this article post last night.
Connecting the dots, Garner and her hubby have GOT to be on that intertwined Obama council that got outed mostly by Glenn Beck about a year ago.
Remember when teachers were having their young students make posters and sing Obama songs and the NEA was involved and CELEBS were being tapped and a phone call about organizing was taped and outed? I'm trying to remember the rest of it but I can't think this morning...need coffee.
Anyway...I'm sure that this Jennifer Garner appearance on F&F a few minutes ago was part of this Obama-tenticals-into-rural-America grab...in patnership with FRIGIDAIRE.
Cool find! Oh, yeah - you can’t swing a dead cat in these parts without hitting one of us Krauts, LOL!
Okay, I have had it. Please, someone stop this fool before it is too late.
Obama and that dork Vilsack are not capable of improving anyones lives.
Ping to something fishy.
You can be guaranteed that any government “help” under 0bama will be “steered” to “Holder’s people”.
Ping to something fishy.
Farmer's tan just makes them look that way.
It ain’t just Zer0 who wants us into more easily controlled “sustainable communities.” Both houses of Congress would be more than happy to see it happen. The Rats want it done yesterday while the Repubicans (not a typo) will settle for some years down the road.

Everything about Obama is fishy.
We have a neighborhood un-welcoming committee. Let's dance.
Thanks for the ping above. Sounds fishy alright. Not sure about a FReeper rural list, but this link and forum keeps up with alot of stuff going on:
We don’t live in a rural area anymore but still have farm interests in Ms. and La., so I try to keep up with what the damn government is doing at all times...lol! If you guys start a list,please let me know. We lived on a farm for about 8 years and I loved it.....had a huge garden,catfish pond, starry nights, bonfires and fireworks when-ever we pleased! I miss it.
