Agree. As I have said on here before those farmers who have their panties in a wad over the socially disadvantaged farmer program need to find something else to whine about. They have been drawing big money for nothing, then they complain about someone else doing what they perceive as the same thing. Hypocrisy at its best. Want some sympathy? Find you a factory worker who is working 60-70 hours a week and paying out the wazoo on federal taxes and show them how much of their tax money you have drawn from the covid programs. Then tell them how unfair the disadvantaged farmer program is to you and see how much sympathy you get.
What's factory pay where you work? I don't actually know, but at $20 an hour and time and half for over time, a married factory worker with a wife and two kids isn't paying much for income taxes. State and Federal might not be over 5% of their income, after all the deductions.
Edit: I do wish they'd shut off the welfare money completely, but that's besides the point.
