>The President of the United States owes farmers like myself some type of plan of action," John Wesley Boyd Jr., a soybean farmer in Baskerville, Virginia, told CNN's Brianna Keilar on Monday.
"Farmers were his base. They helped elect this president ... and now he's turning his back on America's farmers when we need him the most," he added.


>"This can't go on for an extended period of time. We need a trade deal done soon, and in the meantime farmers are probably going to need another round of aid payments," said Kimberley, who is also the director of market development at the Iowa Soybean Association.
Trump offered aid payments last year to farmers hurt by retaliatory tariffs, worth about $12 billion.

OP isn't a real lefty. We don't make blanket generalizations about people for benefiting from redistributive programs.

There was no inherent fairness or deservedness in how resources were distributed prior to the founding of nations with ordered economies. We don't believe that superimposing a free market on the chaos produces fair distribution nor necessarily gets resources to where they can be best utilized for public interest in all cases.

We certainly wouldn't make comparisons of peoples' worth based solely upon their receiving foodstamps or somesuch.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) has a new defense for Trump's unnecessary trade war: that it's fine if farmers are going bankrupt because their sacrifices are "minimal" compared to the sacrifices made by members of the military.

On Monday's edition of "CBS This Morning," Cotton was asked about a recent study showing farmers in Arkansas will be hurt by the trade war.

"Is President Trump hurting the Americans he promised to help?" asked anchor Norah O'Donnell.

"There will be some sacrifice on the part of Americans, I grant you that," Cotton said. "But also I would say that sacrifice is pretty minimal compared to the sacrifices that our soldiers make overseas, that our fallen heroes who are laid to rest in Arlington make."

"You can't compare those two sacrifices," anchor Gayle King said, seeming taken aback that Cotton would try.

But Cotton doubled down. He claimed that farmers "look at the sacrifices soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines make around the world, and they're willing to bear some of the sacrifices in the short term, to hopefully in the long term ensure our long-term prosperity and security."

It's worth noting that even the conservative Heritage Foundation argues Trump's trade war will cause long-term economic harm, not just short-term pain.

But even if Cotton's argument about "long term" sacrifices were accurate, his framing is insulting to both farmers and soldiers. It uses soldiers as political props, and trivializes the suffering of farmers.

And farmers are indeed needlessly suffering due to Trump's trade war. The bankruptcy rates from farmers have skyrocketed since Trump imposed his reckless tariffs, which have caused major consumers of U.S. goods like China to retaliate and price American commodities out of the market.

Trump is spending billions in tax dollars to bail out farmers, but it's not enough to cover their lost sales. American farmers are losing money while Trump brags that trade wars are "good and easy to win."

this. soy subsidies means everything contains soy, and while i dont think the estrogenic effects are clinically relevant, its still a really shit thing to eat for other reasons. corn subsidies means everything contains high fructose corn syrup and shit like soda and chips are dirt cheap, directly contributing to the obesity epidemic

White welfare is no new thing. Its the inherent Republican double standard that perpetuates the same kind of "identity politics" they so love to whinge about. A great example is the opioid crisis. The country laments over the increase in opioid deaths and Trump declares it a health emergency, promising to increase grants and spending into research and treatment. Imagine the pure and unbridled conservative rage if anyone suggested to them that the government sink money into programs to help crack addicted brown people in majority urban centers. When crack was an epidemic the government response was to open more prisons and hire more police, not assist with treatment. The double standard has existed forever. Lets also not forget that, per capita, there are more white people dependent on government assistance than any other demographic. Socialism for them, capitalism for the rest.

Major Major's father was a sober God-fearing man whose idea of agood joke was to lie about his age. He was a long-limbed farmer, a God-fearing, freedom-loving, law-abiding rugged individualist who held that federal aid to anyone but farmers was creeping socialism. He advocated thrift and hard work and disapproved of loose women who turned him down. His specialty was alfalfa, and he made a good thing out of not growing any. The government paid him well for every bushel of alfalfa he did not grow. The more alfalfa he did not grow, the more money the government gave him, and he spent every penny he didn't earn on new land to increase the amount of alfalfa he did not produce. Major Major's father worked without rest at not growing alfalfa. On long winter evenings he remained indoors and did not mend harness, and he sprang out of bed at the crack of noon every day just to make certain that the chores would not be done. He invested in land wisely and soon was not growing more alfalfa than any other man in the county. Neighbors sought him out for advice on all subjects, for he had made much money and was therefore wise. “As ye sow, so shall ye reap,” he counseled one and all, and everyone said, “Amen.

The Aneristic Principle is that of apparent order; the Eristic Principle is that of apparent disorder. Both order and disorder are man made concepts and are artificial divisions of pure chaos, which is a level deeper than is the level of distinction making.
With our concept-making apparatus called "the brain" we look at reality through the ideas-about-reality which our cultures give us. The ideas-about-reality are mistakenly labeled "reality" and unenlightened people are forever perplexed by the fact that other people, especially other cultures, see "reality" differently.
It is only the ideas-about-reality which differ. Real (capital-T) True reality is a level deeper than is the level of concept. We look at the world through windows on which have been drawn grids (concepts). Different philosophies use different grids. A culture is a group of people with rather similar grids. Through a window we view chaos, and relate it to the points on our grid, and thereby understand it. The order is in the grid. That is the Aneristic Principle.
Western philosophy is traditionally concerned with contrasting one grid with another grid, and amending grids in hopes of finding a perfect one that will account for all reality and will, hence, (say unenlightened westerners) be true. This is illusory; it is what we Erisians call the Aneristic Illusion. Some grids can be more useful than others, some more beautiful than others, some more pleasant than others, etc., but none can be more True than any other.
Disorder is simply unrelated information viewed through some particular grid. But, like "relation", no-relation is a concept. Male, like female, is an idea about sex. To say that male-ness is "absence of female-ness", or vice versa, is a matter of definition and metaphysically arbitrary. The artificial concept of no-relation is the Eristic Principle.
>>
The belief that "order is true" and disorder is false or somehow wrong, is the Aneristic Illusion. To say the same of disorder, is the Eristic Illusion. The point is that (little-t) truth is a matter of definition relative to the grid one is using at the moment, and that (capital-T) Truth, metaphysical reality, is irrelevant to grids entirely. Pick a grid, and through it some chaos appears ordered and some appears disordered. Pick another grid, and the same chaos will appear differently ordered and disordered.
Reality is the original Rorschach. Verily! So much for all that.

Soy produces DOUBLE the protein of any other vegetable crop on earth.

You can't really argue against soy and I'm tired of cuckservatives trying to paint some faux picture on unnecessary government subsidies when in fact soy is crucial to populations of scale in the future.

American car manufacturers and banks got bailed out by the government instead of being allowed to go away as per muh free market. I don't know whether that was a good or bad thing in the grand scheme of things, but it means obstinate retards will not necessarily fail.

Also Monsanto is cartoon evil at this point.

System was flawed by design. The founders put in a lot of safe guards, but system still heavily relies on altruism.

The Democrat party is fractured, but the Republican party is what really suffers. It really should be about four different parties.

Most of the libertarian party votes with the Republicans, despite having only a few issues in common. There is also a large number of non religious Republicans that are forced to go against things they actually agree with, such as abortion.

Most people are centrists, but they vote straight single party based on a few issues they care about and no party gives them a middle ground

Farmers have been subsidized in the US since 1820. First they were given land just to farm, then price supports since 1921. This is nothing new.
>>
>>402760
goddamn when I'm dealing with someone perched in his seat, ready for the gun to sound just to prove they are the biggest idiot in the room by recycling this long disproven trope, I get a sense of partisanship. Socialism is seizing the means of production. Social programs are providing laborers with windfalls and safety nets so capitalism doesn't go on unchecked til it becomes the Republican Feudal State right leaning billionaires so desperately want.
>>
>>402841
Communism is socialist in practice because it inevitably fails once it reaches that stage. Socialism emphasizes greater government control over the private sector and a redistribution of wealth, which is what your last sentence describes.
>>
>>402841

Socialism is capitalism centralized into the federal government. It is a complete lie that workers share ownership under socialism. You just change it hands from one set of billionaires to another. It's why real communism has never been tried and never will.
>>
>>402840
This is the real truth.

Since a globally connected marketplace was possible (i.e., mass haulage via ship route) farms have been subsidized. It's part of that altruism our society apparently lacks, as said by some anon above.

We suffer a bit so the tomato farmer in Chile can have a better life for their kids.

Everything else going on in this thread can be ignored.
I don't need to watch mental midgets confuse and craft always-new meanings for socialism, communism, and whatever else is the bullshit of the generation.
