    You know what really sucks? During the government shutdown people that work for the USDA had to go to work without pay to process tariff relief checks for farmers :rolleyes:

    Kind of like that Nazi Patriotism, it’s patriotic as long as it’s my kind of patriotism. I bet half of congress wasn’t real keen on Lincoln’s patriotism. As a reformed racist and better educated southerner, I appreciate Lincoln’s patriotism. I’m not real big on patriotism driven by bigotry and white nationalism, like that coming from our current Whitehouse. So if snubbing white nationalism wrapped in the American flag makes me un-patriotic in the eyes of a bunch of ignorant bigots, I wear my disdain for that America very proudly.

    The Federal government has been providing different types of subsidies to farmers since the '30s. The big difference this time is that the subsidies are intended to mitigate a hardship created by Trump himself, specifically to offset the loss of one of the largest export markets directly attributable to retaliatory tariffs imposed by China in response to Trump's trade war.
