Ok, I ain't being very plain here.
Your 39% is pretty close as to where "most" (not all) subsidies go, but the big farmers are the ones I'm talking about.

My BIL gets farm subsidies, as does his wife. He farms 3 sections.

Many "so called farmers" are "part timers" who file for "agricultural tax exemptions" and get counted as FARMERS.

Ever go in a Tractor Supply and the checker asks if your tax exempt?
I can go to the local coffee shop this morning, and 5 outta 5 farmers setting there are getting farm subsidies, and so are their wives.

My point was, and is, farming should be like any other business.

If you can't make it on your own, go do something else, don't make the tax payer pay you for doin something your failing at.

Farmers, real and wanna bes, don't pay fuel taxes, don't pay taxes on purchases they "claim" are gonna be used on the farm, and get big breaks on vehicle registration ect.

They can even claim agricultural exemptions on their land, and this is abused a lot.
A land owner with 15 or 20 acres and a "few" pecan trees can get all the above.

Each break may not seem like much individually, but together they add up to thousands, or millions of dollars.

Do you get those kinda breaks? I sure dont.

It does seem most threads go sideways sooner or later. Being truthful I know you have a long standing gripe about farmers getting subsidies and just wanted to stir your pot a bit since you brought it up again.



What are your feelings about welfare recipients that draw government checks and do absolutely nothing in return for them or feeding and housing illegals? Maybe I should withdraw that question. I don'r want my monitor to catch on fire when I read your reply which I suspect would be much like my own.

They are all on the government payroll. North (retired), Bush (retired) and some farmers.

thankfully, the state has clamped down somewhat on "farm use" things
in general from what it was years ago. you can't just swagger on in to
the feed store and start spouting off "that's fer farm use" like you could
some years back. if you don't have your card on you, and your papers
on file with the store, no taxee free free. or at least that's the way it's
supposed to be now. i haven't been to all of the farm and ranch
stores in the state.
i've always payed tax on all my stuff just because it's such a big hassle
to keep up with it come tax time. and i don't buy enough stuff to be worth
keeping an accountant on payroll to keep track of it for me.
however, i do see a lot of farm plated trucks pulling farm plated trailers
with "farm use" UTV's and "farm use" jet skis and "farm use" bass boats
burning "farm use" fuel.
bull doo-doo like that is what makes it hard on legitimate users.

We have a people control problem.

Around here there are too many brand splinter new farmhouses with brand new trucks in the drive with the farmers name on the plate for my liking. All of them bitching about the price of corn while liven the life of Riley on my nickel.

They work the system for all it's worth!

The government CRP does make for good pheasant hunting though.......if there is a bright side!

🤣

Everybody needs to get their asses to work.

As for my penchant concerning farm subsidies, I've got relatives that ride'em, lifelong acquaintances that sign half their family up for'em, and live high on the hog while their illegal alien farm hands do the work.

The farm subsidies recipients are as guilty as welfare recipients.

They've got'em for so long they think their entitled to OUR MONEY.

ok, I feel a little better. 🤗
