Accepting DCP payments and other government benefits that benefit farmers in nothing like accepting fod stamps and welfare. It seems like every time I look at this board someone is crying about receiving government money...if the government will stay out of our business and quit requiring the onerous compliance will all the cockamamie environmental bs then fine, but when the government gets out of our business get out of the other businesses that are subsidized in the US.
As Far as being a giver or a taker...if it wasn't for pride a guy making 25k and working his tail off is way better off sitting on his can and taking a check. In another 5 years kiss the economy goodbye, when folks wise up to this there won't be enough labor run any of our farms and factories.
