Life Democrat Style

Spreading the wealth around
by taking and giving
and taking a cut!

Let's see . . . The trick-or-treaters are the hardworking taxpayers. The man at the door represents the democrats. And the people he gives the candy to are the big landowners who get paid to do absolutely nothing through agricultural subsidies. Do I have that right? So you are saying you don't support such wasteful subsidies? http://farm.ewg.org/farm/region.php?fips=27025 reports that the top 20 Chisago County recipients of redistributed wealth in the form of ag subsidies in 2006 are:
1 Kgl Farms ∗ North Branch, MN 55056 $54,884

4 Brian D Greene Shafer, MN 55074 $49,473
5 Diane J Peterson Forest Lake, MN 55025 $49,166

Anonymous #1: You have a seriously bad case of the disease called Joe the Farmer envy.

Why don't you become a farmer to get a public handout for doing "absolutely nothing"?

I, (anonymous #1) am trying to make a point. I keep seeing criticism here about the term "Spread the Wealth" and simple-minded comments about taxing some to benefit others. No one who runs this web site will respond as being against this huge collection of taxes to benefit agricultural land owners. They are OK with entitlements as long as they are the ones on the receiving end. Complete hypocrisy. I actually understand the logic behind such programs, and am tired of hearing blind mindless criticism of Democrats as "Tax and Spend", when this "Chisago is GOP" county depends upon such 'tax and spend' programs, and is heavily per capita on the receiving end of these ag subsidies. I hate dishonest arguments. I am a big fan of William F. Buckley. I may vote Republican again when they can campaign on ideas and ideals, rather than hate and derision.
