By your logic, farmers are also parasites sucking off
the public's nipples.

Rumor has it that the IRS will soon be distributing
copies in languages other than English very soon.

The only "absurd mountains of excess soybeans" on our
family farm was created back in the late-seventies,
because then-President Carter farbade us from selling
them to the then-Soviets. And Carter was supposed to
be a farmer.

I wish I knew where to get some of this "farm
welfare." Hey, I'vbe got some empty land in East
Texas. Maybe I can not raise some hogs on it. While
I'm at it, maybe I can get paid for not raising the
corn that I'm not going to feed to the hogs I'm not
going to raise. Wait a minute, you said that "corn is
currently so cheap because of farm welfare" maybe I'll
not grow a higher-paying crop that I'm not going to
feed to the hogs I'm not going to raise. Let's
see...marijuana...yeah, that's the ticket. I'm not
going to raise those hogs. That's one farm welfare I
can apply for. And I'm not going to raise marijuana
that I'm not going to feed to the hogs I'm not going
to raise. That's another farm subsidy. Do you know
where I can get any of that free butter and cheese?
And those free school lunches, I'll take some of those

Unless you're cheating on your taxes using the Form
1040 that you can't read, you already are.
