Do me a favor: Instead of referring to the bullshit funding nonsense as "farmer welfare," call it "corporate farmer welfare." Real farmers don't get welfare. Big Ag and rich horse breeders do.
@Douglas Smith@facebook I agree that the ad is a bit nauseating, but no more than the mindless invective of this post. I expect more of The Awl readers, and I certainly expect more of Abe.
@s. If you've eaten today, thank a farmer. Asshole.
Wow, I'm really surprised at how stupid this all is, both Abe's thing and all the comments. Farming is not all Big Ag, especially outside of those big terrible square-shaped states. To characterize farmers as geriatric Tea Party wing nuts is like saying website commenters are all a bunch of hipster douchebags. Oh wait ....
And anyway, I drive a Chevy.
