It’s crazier than that. I’d never heard of this, but it sounds as if the government can create set-asides in any sort of product it wants, not just raisins. Corn, beef, wheat, soy—you name it—in the name of regulating markets for “fair” prices. That means a farmer has to pay a production tax in kind, and then, if he still manages to make money on the remaining goods, he pays income tax too!

Why limit this government power to just agriculture products? Hey, Ford is kicking Government Motor's ass, let's make everyone put a "set-aside" to help everyone get a "fair share" of possible profits. You produce more cars, you have to "set-aside" more product.

The idea that the government has a right to tell you how much you can produce on your own property has GOT TO END! This is simply beyond the realm of reality! The idea that me growing my own food for my family is somehow equal to "...commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes" is simply LUNACY!!

The Constitution states that they can REGULATE commerce, not MANIPULATE commerce!

Wnat to win elections - just start showing the “citizens” taht stupid rules created in 1937 about raisins, or a tax to pay for the Spanish/American War is out dated and should be illiminated!! Do this 50 times a week and the government will be the size most Freepers think it should be.
