Tens of thousands of acres of farmland have been leased for oil and gas drilling, a far more profitable enterprise than farming: no expensive machinery to buy, no weather that can wipe out a crop right before harvest, no labor issues.
Better start learning how to grow your own, urban dwellers.
Deplorable and distressing ideas from the Republican Senate.
1. Let the sequester go through without amendment.
2. Do not squander away legislative power to Obama..Never..Ever.
3. For shame McConnell. The Ag direct payments elimination must stand.
4. Flexibility in managing the sequester should be granted to Department heads as part of the Debt Extension bill.
Civilizational suicide continues.
Revenues now, cuts to be named later.
“50-50 is a fair and balanced way to move forward”
That’s what we said during the ‘Fiscal Cliff’ but they would accept ONLY increased taxes with no cuts and that’s what they got.
I have no problem with eliminating 20 billion. My question is why are we so quick to first eliminate one of the few programs that benefit the producers in society and those who typically vote and support conservatives? We may as well just write a check to the Democrat National Commitee. It is like we are shooting our own. Instead we should first look to take $20 billion from the moochers of society.
In any event there's no way the House will take this up. Sequester will happen.
If you make a deal with the Devil, you deserve to burn in Hell with him.
NO to bipartisan agreements on ANYTHING with these worthless and corrupt bastards.
How about a big old NO to the Obamaunists. He got his revenue 6 weeks ago, the hell with him/them. It might give Boehner time to grow a pair before the debt ceiling demands.
if the sequester is as awful and dreadful and the end of the world, how can half of the end of the world be an acceptable compromise? seriously, how can the democrats be so cruel?!?
besides the sequester is barry’s awesome brainchild solution. why must we be saved from barry’s once-lauded as genius, solution?
This “sequestration” crap is getting old fast.
If the House has passed a budget, it’s the Senate’s turn to act. Period. Let’s see what reid and his Senate do. Meanwhile, the House needs to move on to other business and Boehner needs to answer each and every question from the scumbag Democrat “mainstream” newsrooms with the same exact answer, word for word: “The House has done its job and passed a budget, and now we await action from the Senate. Meanwhile, the House is moving on to other business. Next question?”
Translation: "WEe previously asked if we could stick forks in both your eyes. Now we are only asking you to let us stick a single fork in one of your eyes. Surely you can cave that far."
NO MORE DEALS - and I say that as one who will directly suffer from furloughs caused by the sequester.
