Farming Ain't Green Acres Anymore

Supposedly the Bush Administration will cut back on our system of massive farm subsidies in order to get a new World Trade Organization agreement.

When pigs fly.

This is total bullshit. Large farming operations are a part of the Big-Government-Right-Wing Republication-Coalition. They get tons of handouts, just like other sectors of corporate America. Don't weep for the small, family-owned farms: they don't exist anymore. This is big business, and the "farmers" who get subsidies are ones who spend the winters in Miami in their condos.

Farming in America in 2005 doesn't look anyting like "Green Acres." It more closely resembles the Chicago Board of Trade.
