My God, How Can Such Men Be Defeated?*

The Story of Captain Samuel Whittemore

On this day in history, 1775, the "shot heard 'round the world" was fired, launching the American War of Independence.

His fellow minuteman started firing at the oncoming British Grenadiers of the 47th Regiment of Foot, falling back to reload, then firing again. Sam waited. Finally, when the column was directly in front of him, he stood and fired his musket. A grenadier fell dead. He drew his two pistols, firing both at almost point blank range. Another grenadier fell dead, a third fell mortally wounded. The British soldiers were on top of him, he had not the time to reload his musket or pistols, so drawing his sword, he started flailing away at the bayonet wielding soldiers. A soldier leveled his Brown Bess musket, at point blank range, and fired. The .69 caliber ball struck Sam in the cheek, tearing away part of his face and throwing him to the ground. Sam valiantly tried to rise, fending off bayonet thrusts with his sword, but he was overpowered. Struck in the head with a musket butt, he went down again, then was bayoneted thirteen times and left for dead.

...

After the British column had fought its way clear, the town's people and minuteman started to search for their wounded compatriots. Several had seen Sam Whittemore's "last stand" and approached to remove his body. To everyone's astonishment Sam was not only still alive, but conscious and still full of fight. Laying there, he was trying to load his musket!

Oh, and Captain Whittemore was 80 years old at the time.

Bad. Ass.

*The title of this section is a quote from Marine General Holland M "Howlin' Mad" Smith referencing the sacrifices his men made to take Tarawa in WWII. I suspect General Smith and his fellow leathernecks are proud to claim a warrior's brotherhhod with a hero like minuteman Captain Samuel Whittemore. H/t @Isophorone


Sugar

Candy-Coated Cartel: Time to Kill the U.S. Sugar Program


This is my all time, number one with a bullet, most hated government program. It (along with the corn subsidy program) is responsible for the explosion of high-fructose corn syrup in most of our food, and most especially in Coke. A proper Coke is a sublime experience. Made with sugar and served ice-cold in a freshly opened glass bottle, God himself couldn't improve one on the taste. Because of government interference in the market, you can't get it from the US. You can buy kosher Coke (and I do, by the flat) around Passover, but it comes in plastic 2 liter bottles. You can buy it in Canada, in cans, and I literally bring cases home when I return from visiting the Great White North (one time a border agent commented on all the cases in my car), but to get The Real Thing, you have to buy imported Mexican Coke in the traditional curved glass bottle. It's more expensive than regular Coke. Worth. Every. Penny.

19 Fascinating Animal Facts That Will Blow Your Mind

Luke is 7. * Notices how many Morons are taking notes *


Hate Chicken


Last week The New Yorker magazine came out with a typically condesending article about Chick-Fil-A opening a store in NYC. It's a hot pile of garbage, you can read it if you'd like, but I'd heartily recommend reading Larry Correia's fisking of the article instead: FISKING THE NEW YORKER IN DEFENSE OF DELICIOUS CHICKEN. It's full of great quotes, like:-

Here’s a true story that illustrates the sheltered mindset of Dan’s social group. One time I was at a publishing industry party in Manhattan. Being the one token wild red state barbarian, we were discussing what living in the country is like. (for the record, these people think Danbury Connecticut is The Country).

I offhandedly mentioned that my home county has more cows than people. This woman incredulously asked “what do you do with all their waste?”

“Huh?”

“How does it get to the sewer system?”

I just kind of stared at her blankly. “Uh… They poop on the ground.”
Shock. Absolute shock. And then I’m trying to explain to a bunch of people who live somewhere entirely paved where soil comes from.

Read the whole thing, it's a stitch.


Cults

My Month As A Member of the ‘Wild Wild Country’ Sex Cult

Written by the Playboy Advisor, it's fascinating to me how many people think that human nature doesn't apply to them.

Speaking of cults, today is the anniversary of the federal government attacking a peaceful compound* in Waco and killing 76 people.

Waco.jpg

Randy Weaver says hello. Cliven Bundy would like to remind everyone that but for the power of social media, there goes he.

*I'm not defending the Branch Davidians or their beliefs, but there was no reason for them to be attacked like that except for a government's raw hunger for power and an unquenchable desire to make everyone submit to their will.

Government is not reason, it is not eloquence — it is force. Like fire it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master; never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.

-George Washington (apocryphal, earliest recorded citation from 1902 as per Fred Shapiro, editor of the Yale Book of Quotations)

I'm not defending the Branch Davidians or their beliefs, but there was
no reason for them to be attacked like that except for a government's
raw hunger for power and an unquenchable desire to make everyone submit
to their will.

91 @59 What was the government's justification for using so much force in Waco?
-------------------

iirc, "For the children". Bad nasty things were happening to all of the kids that were caught up in the Branch Davidian cult, so the government was forced to step in using all force and means necessary.

Of course, all the kids ended up being burned to death because of the government. But at least those bad nasty things weren't happening to them anymore!

105 Memo To File: When sharing SECRET material is the right thing to do, because of a higher loyalty.

I'm Watching Laura Ingraham argue that Comey's memos were government property and could not legally be shared the way Comey shared them based on that.

She misses an important point.

Come classified these memos as SECRET so they would be treated as such, since he could not himself determine that they were anything else. He put a declass date on them. He put them into the classified material handling pipeline - where rules exist about handling, downgrading, and declassifying.

Then, at his own whim, he simply gave them to a civilian for the purpose that they would be distributed publicly, quickly bypassing that tedious set of rules codified in national laws.

This life is both interminably long and the merest flash of light. I weep at how quickly it passes and mourn how long my grief is lasting. All I know to do is what God asks of me: to love Him, to share the mercy He has shown me, to walk humbly in His presence.

That depends on when your childhood was. The old-style gas station vending machines and coolers in the 1930s and 40s had 6 oz. bottles. I've seen old ads from the 50s touting the new 12 oz. bottles. I doubt that any bottles larger than that existed before the 70s.

168 Mister Weird Dave, sir. You are my lost brother. I've felt the same about sugar and, in particular, Coca-Cola, my entire life.
I would not want to live in a world without it, and drink it to excess every day. Amazingly, I've avoided diabetes even after 63 years. Thank you, God, for I would not want to give it up.
But please, give us our real sugar again.

And what's with these folks who drink that diet shit? Tastes like brake fluid. I have no pity or patience for them.

Thank you, sir, for the knowledge that I am not alone.

One day, my best friend was over; and she picked up an almost-empty bottle of Coke and took a big swig. My older brother looked at her and deadpanned, "Round here, by now, that bottle is 95% backwash."

Coke sprayed everywhere. Hilarious.

Saccharides - whether sucrose, glucose, or fructose - don't burn. Carbon dioxide does. A lot.

255 Until the early 70's, there were local bottlers who had their own recipes. Each town of any size had its own brand, with its own root beer, ginger ale, and "creme" soda. They had individual-sized bottles (no cans), but to get the family deal price you had to buy them in the 32-ounce bottle, which of course went flat pretty quick unless you had a Luther League picnic or something.

The colas were sad, like that one kind of cereal, you know, but the cherry and strawberry and other concoctions were pretty memorable. Usually the same companies bought a Coke or Pepsi franchise as "tastes evolved," and let their own brands go down.

265 That David French article in the sidebar reminds me of a classic episode of the TV show "Taxi" in which Ted Danson plays a snooty hairdresser who ruins Elaine's hair. Alex (Judd Hirsch) decides not to pour a bowl of hair dye on Danson's head, even after Danson makes an anti-Semitic comment, because "he's better than that."

However, Louie DePalma (Danny DeVito) immediately pours the dye on Danson's head and tongue kisses his secretary, saying he may be better than that, "but I ain't." The studio audience goes wild.

David French is Judd Hirsch. Morons are Danny DeVito.

337 As I understood it, years ago, Coca-Cola bought the residues from the refining of pharmaceutical-grade cocaine from Mallinkcrodt and used that as the additive to the soft drink, i.e. everything but actual cocaine.

338 In the 60's there was a whispering campaign that the RC in Royal Crown stood for Roman Catholic and was part of a papist plot for world domination.

The famous astronaut John Glenn was a major stockholder, which was enough to put me off them for years, until Coke and Pepsi embarrassed themselves so fully in the ad wars that they seemed a refreshing alternative.

Yes, it did. Seven-Up had lithium. Many "soft drinks" had some kind of drug in them.

383 Boss N!gger (also known as Boss and The Black Bounty Killer) is a 1975 Western film directed by Jack Arnold. It stars former football player Fred Williamson, who both wrote and co-produced the film. Boss N!gger is the first film for which Williamson was credited as screenwriter or producer.

[...]

On its initial release, Vincent Canby of The New York Times described Boss N!gger as "a pleasant surprise if you stumble upon it without warning." Canby characterized Williamson's acting as "an immensely self-assured parody of the Man with No Name played by Clint Eastwood in Sergio Leone's films." Canby concluded his review by highlighting what made Boss N!gger notable among black Westerns: "Most black Westerns either ignore race or make it the fundamental point of the movie. Boss N!gger somehow manages to do both quite successfully."

In its review of Boss N!gger, written in 2007, Time Out suggested that Williamson was parodying the violent roles he had played in other blaxploitation films. The review noted that Boss N!gger was notable for its "old-fashioned bloodless violence."

Writing in 2006, film critic Ryan Diduck described the marketing of Boss N!gger and other blaxploitation films to black audiences as an example of "empowerment through an overturned representation of long-established agency limitations for black men." Diduck specifically cited the trailer for Boss N!gger for the manner in which it elicits feelings of black superiority and white hysteria and encourages the audience to identify with the outsider hero who finds himself at odds with the rules of white America.

Fred Williamson is a black guy and blaxploitation flicks were very popular in black neighborhoods.

385 Deplorable Jay,

I had a synthetic opioid with my first labor & delivery. It made me feel like a thousand bees were stinging me, but did nothing for the pain.

Some years ago, I sliced my thumb down to the bone with a box cutter. The hand surgeon gave me a scrip for Vicodin. I was not in any pain (a theme in my life), but I popped a couple to see what the fuss is about. I felt...nothing.

Just a couple of years ago, I had a genetic test done to see what centrally acting drugs I am sensitive to...I apparently have very few opioid receptors. Interesting. Maybe that's why I never get that elusive runner's high everyone matters on about...for me, the pain of the long miles is what keeps my mind from chewing itself into tatters.

Maybe insom needs to hit the trails with me...

For the youngins, those weren't just "returnable" for a "recycling" scam, but were designed to actually be reused hundreds of times.

And, the location of the local bottling plant was molded into the base. So, the bottles would roam the nation, via recycling. We used to play a kind of game where if two or more people were buying bottles of Coke, the guy whose bottle was from furthest away would buy.

I think it's shipping costs. A crateful of empty pop bottles weighs at least half as much as a crateful of full ones. So it costs nearly as much to ship empties back to the bottling plant as it cost to ship the full bottles out. A case of empty aluminum cans weighs almost nothing in comparison.

well, as glass goes, breakage is a huge problem. there were one or two tries to open pepsi plants in russia before the cold war came down. didn't work because roads were so poor and trucks rode so rough that they had huge breakage losses.

That's one of the few good things about living just north of Detroit. Wisconsin gets hammered and as the snow crosses Lake Michigan it seems to shift either north of south of us. All the snow that's fallen in the past few weeks, we only got a few inches and it was always melted by noon the next day.

509 In homefront news, my eye continues to heal well. I can see pretty well with it now. Distance vision is not quite as acute as the left eye with its contact lens in place, but damned close, and certainly OK for driving. And I am sure it will improve as the swelling diminishes, and the surface of my eye clears up. Two weeks.


I got the pinion seal back into the differential of my '08 Suburban, and it is back in the ranks of the employable. And the '97, the transmission of which lost all forward gears but second, is on the hoist awaiting service.

technically that is the second biggest problem. the biggest problem is that libtards went to other countries, experienced traffic circles and could not wait to implement them here. has to be part of their war on cars and making driving as miserable as possible.

Not bad if they keep it simple and have a stop / yield on all inbound legs. Annoying if they make some inbound stop, some yield, some dedicated no-stop inbound... and force exit on some outbound legs and not others.

I know one where with three lanes if you enter heading west -
the right most lane doesn't have to stop or yield but has to exit heading north, center lane has to yield and has to exit west, the left lane has to yield but can change lanes once in and exit any way...

And the rules are different if you enter from the other three ways.

Both the seal, and its mating piece, called a "wear sleeve" and unique to the 11.5 inch axle, were surprisingly easy to install. Even considering that I am not supposed to do any heavy lifting until my eye heals. Blood pressure, you know. Heaviest thing I "lifted" was the 3/4" air impact, and I really only moved it a foot or two.
My neighbor came down, and moved the hoist ramps for me, which would have been a bridge too far, lifting-wise. Then we put his son's car on the hoist, and I went over for an insurance inspection. It was OK, too.
So, a good shop day. And the snow continues to melt, despite it not being real warm. But the Sun was warm.

Posted by: hogmartin at April 20, 2018 12:17 AM (y87Qq)

We do not have spring. We have breakup. As in, the ice and snow break up and fall apart and for a couple of weeks you wear your xtratuffs everywhere, including to the office, and then it's summer.

So, this is a slow breakup, which is taking about three weeks, due to the extra snow we had, which is lovely. We didn't get a Chinook this year, so that slowed down the melting, too, but it doesn't freeze much at night so things are now moving apace.

In a week, we will be doing field work at the Little League diamonds, and then on to baseball season. The boy is in the majors this year, and DH is coaching, as always. Reliving the glory days. But he is the coach every boy wants, because he cuts no slack and he really teaches them the game. He lives for this.

We won't go camping until June--too cold in the mountains just yet. But then there's dipnetting, and smoking salmon, and lots of beer drinking.....in the woods. We will be going with friends more than once this year, which is terrific fun.

576 In case some think Larry Correia's story about the New Yorker shocked about where cows shit is made up or even recent. Many years ago, long before Chik-Fil-A was around, a distant family acquaintance visited her folks in Wisconsin from NYC. This high school student thought the cows were big dogs. Makes me wonder if this poor benighted creature thought she needed a passport to drive to Levittown or Garden City.

Is the little "shoe" still attached to the glass? In which case, all you need is a small Allen wrench to attach the mirror to the shoe, and one may well come packed with the new mirror.

If you have to glue the shoe to the glass, obtain a package of rear-view mirror adhesive from an auto parts store, and follow the instructions on the package very strictly. All residue of the old adhesive must be removed (razor blade scraper), and the glass cleaned VERY thoroughly. Be sure you don't mount the "shoe" upside down.

It's really an easy job to do yourself.

It's tears to the eyes good, is what it is.

I take care to dine upon such slowly, as to savor every last bite.

And that's 'bout the ONLY hard core Irish fare that's worth a damn in mention.

Usually it gets mounted to the trim moulding that surrounds the windshield on the inside. Often by removing moulding screws, and using them to attach the brackets. Some newer cars don't have moulding screws. You could also use two of the mounting shoes for stick-on mirrors, I guess.

I have a spare Wink mirror here. Should try mounting it in one of my vehicles, and see how it holds up to what my memory of it is.

The problem with roundabouts is you want to add them where there's an intersection that can no longer handle traffic due to growth. But they take up more room than intersections, so you can't really add 'em without ripping up the neighborhood.

They take a lot more land and leave useless islands in the middle that need to be maintained.

All in all, roundabouts are a waste and a license for government to waste more property and assume more maintenance costs and responsibilities. We won't even talk about what they would do regarding bicycle paths through the roundabouts.

The simple 4-way stop sign is far superior and can easily be replaced with a light if traffic patterns change in that direction or by taking two of the stop signs out if traffic drops enough.

I can't imagine what will happen to St. Louis when the big one hits. All that brick and no reinforcement. Plus, a big river that moves when it shakes. Ay caramba.

They are everywhere around you; just you and they do not know it until the crunch. Every generation laments how weak their people have become, and are in turn surprised by what their people will do when they hit that crunch.

You can be comforted in the faith that the men of Tarawa, Saratoga, Gettysburg, Belleau Wood, Ia Drang, and Fallujah are always there.

Or you can whine and piss and moan about how *this time* there is no recovery, all is lost and we are all going down. Your choice.

If you think about it, the 4-way stop is a bit ineffective, since you have stop at the intersection regardless if there are other cars or not.

Double Clutching is what you did in a straight-cut gearbox with no synchros, to reduce the amount of metal shavings sheared off into the sump, from when you didn't so maneuver the leftmost pedal.

Synchros are the expression of mechanical genius introduced into the cogs, so as to eliminate the need to master the three pedal dance on the downshift as a routine matter of everyday driving.

And if you want "double clutching" fun, try riding a Suicide Clutch Harley Davidson, with a tank-mounted shifter on a winding, twisty mountain road.

Berserker would have the Pro Tips on *that* ride, all day long and twice on Sundays.

Try cross-over lanes at highway diamond intersections. Supposedly makes it easier for left hand turns to the on ramps.

Instead of just a traffic light at the on / off ramps all lanes cross over to the left side of the road, and then back to the right at the next set of on / off ramps. So just under the highway, the secondary road is driving on the opposite side of the road.

Before you can have self-driving cars, you have to have AI take over all the traffic control, just like in the original Italian Job movie. And once you have all the traffic controls looking down the street to see if the light has to change, you won't even need the self-driving cars because you will save so much on fuel, brake linings, and pinion seals for Suburbans, we'll be awash in credit.

You apply half the computing horsepower needed for self-drive AI to synchronizing traffic controls, and you'll never need another King's Acre worth of traffic circle.

Does even a synchromesh transmission engage more slickly and enjoyably when you do the pedal dance? Absolutely.

A few modern manuals actually do the job for you and blip the throttle automatically on the downshift.

Cars are so good nowdays, that I'm OK with the computertranny doing all of the deciding.

I can concentrate on the line, apex and smooth throttle and brake stuff.

When I want to be more mechanically engaged, it's motorcycle time.

Add that 3d dimension which is the combination of lean angle, gyroscopic procession and slip angle, and now we're at a far more pure man/machine interface.

714 I was raised and educated to believe that earthquakes were geologically impossible in Ohio. The caverns, the limestone, the mound builders, I don't know, but parents, scientists, ministers all got together on that one. Sure the weather sucks and we have tornadoes, and yes that one storm really was a hurricane that took a wrong turn, and, Lake Effect, but at least we don't have Those Things.

And that is how I came to be in a restaurant built in a former water reservoir beneath the Scioto River when I experienced my first local earthquake. The next one knocked a couple of letters off the sign in front of my building, and had its epicenter directly under the physics department of my high school which I found curiously fitting.

Agreed, there are just some basic skills that, even if you aren't
that good at them, everyone should just have. Driving a manual, changing
a tire, applying a tourniquet, winning a rap battle, using a fire
extinguisher, knowing where the gas shut-off is in the house, just basic
things like that can be the difference between a hair-on-fire emergency
and an inconvenience.

719 3 Calis vs 2Calis...

I assume that's the crazies' idea to keep "balance" in the Senate? If you do it the "State of Jefferson" way and just split off the conservative end, you gain 2 conservative Senators. If you also divide the crazy part in half, you gain 2 conservatives and 2 crazies.

Same reason you won't see the northeastern flyspeck states merging, unless they merge some of the more-cows-than-humans states in flyover country at the same time.

726 I say, let Cali secede from the Union, and wait for a opening to plunge through and retake it back; just like the Civil War.

Lincoln held troops at Fort Sumter in South Carolina, Confederates sieged it, Lincoln then turned tot he tables by only sending supplies and food to Fort, instead of attacking the South. This put the blame of war of Jefferson Davis, who attacked Fort Sumter, INSTEAD of Lincoln.

This unified the Union and made people believe they were trying to preserve it.

I made my daughters pay me to fix their cars by being next to me when I did repairs. They may not have learned enough to replace an alternator or do a brake job.

Posted by: X-ray at April 20, 2018 01:56 AM (TGrKk)

736 First car I owned was an '88 Plymouth Horizon four-door hatch back with a five-speed (not drove - owned.) That was an awesome little car - I could put it into fifth gear at 35 miles an hour and do 1100 rpm when 1000 was idle; the cargo capacity of the "econobox" design was amazing; with a limber girlfriend just putting down the back seat and moving the front passenger seat forward made for an agreeable end to the evening, and by that time all of the bugs had really been worked out and the Horizon/Omni were good to go. (I recall reading that Chrysler was going to stop production of the Horizon/Omni but reconsidered when it was pointed out that the design was unchanged, the engineering was already done, the dies and tools were already depreciated, and that they were still selling lots of them, and at this point they had hit the Neverland of having a tiny car that did not cost more to make than it was selling for. IIRC Chrysler was actually starting to make a few bucks - not many, just a few - on each Horizon/Omni.

And if you ask me "Would you like one, today, as a second car?" I would say "Oh fuck yes, of course."

My mom should never have had kids.

She was the princess in her family, spoiled and entitled. Having five kids was not exactly on her radar.

I grew up with the phrase, "Go outside, all of you, you damned kids." She is still the prickliest pickle on the planet.

Luckily she has forgotten how angry she used to be, but she still finds ways to be odious.

The good news is that it doesn't have to bother me any more. It is entirely possible to leave that behind you, and I do. I still take the fourth commandment seriously, but I also know that I can honor her and still not let her victimize me. I just wish she could be nicer to my son, but it isn't going to happen, so I let that go, too.

I had a business with a little 'bout quarter acre plot of open space in the back. One day a black employee who lived in Philly came to me all excited. He wanted to ask me something. Out back. He pointed to a spot on the ground where a wild strawberry plant was growing, a fairly decent size strawberry on it.

"Is that how you get strawberries?" he asked. "They grow on the ground like that?"

I assured him they did in fact grow on the ground but I wouldn't suggest eating a wild one. He was simply amazed at the idea. Food growing up out of the ground.

Perhaps this is a major part of the reason leftists dominate our major cities... because they're just that fvcking clueless. That all the food they consume came from some mysterious process.

795 I'm still on vacay on an island in FLA. Big news in the local fish wrap. People are putting garbage in the recycle bins that the garbage trucks pick up!! Oh noes!!! China will not pay top dollar for dirty recycling! We should all be ashamed. Plus those disgusting short term renters are the worst perpetrators of this sin!!

I looked at the 2 cans by our rental. Both the same size. One is green one is blue. No markings on the sides. Guess which one is the recycle?

That's right, the BLUE one. It has an embossed Recycle on the lid that is almost worn flat and can only be read at a certain angle.
Damn dirty tourists...

The color green is associated with the planet, so obviously the 'green' thing to do is recycle. What's my prize?

In my area recycle bins are neon red and short, while they provide us with mammoth wheeled 'buggies' for refuse. Grey in colour.

At home, both of them are green. The recycle is the smaller of the two. Plus it has stickers on it that say Recycle Only.
I also have a big roller bin for yard waste. Guess what stickers it has on it......Yard Waste Only

That's what the wife and I said. You econazis came up with the green is good thing. Plus you have Germans, Canuks, and Englishters around here too. Maybe make sure they know what's what.
If they want to piss off the rest of the tourists they can go ahead. We started coming here in 2003 and have seen it the population swell so much during "season". They still like to refer to themselves as a best kept secret.

Posted by: Bruce at April 20, 2018 06:33 AM (BdsCV)

810 We have two blue carts, but one has the recycle logo on it. I bought a bin for yard stuff but is was only available unmarked, in fashionable black.

So General Michael Flynn's life can be totally destroyed while Shadey James Comey can Leak and Lie and make lots of money from a third rate book (that should never have been written). Is that really the way life in America is supposed to work? I don't think so!

814 Mornin'.

Wild strawberries are delicious and perfectly safe to eat. (Unless they're growing someplace that might be contaminated, like near a landfill.)

Those little wild ones are packed with flavor like no store-bought ones. When I was a kid my mom would send the sibs and I out into the field behind our house with Tupperware containers to fill, then we'd have strawberry shortcake for dessert. When I got older I started picking 2 quarts every year and making up the best strawberry jam ever, enough to last the year.

If you're in a small business odds are very high that you have BURNED INTO YOUR FREAKING BRAIN, the revenue numbers you must generate each and every day to pay yourself, your employees, your taxes, your rent, your electricity, your power, your heat, your air conditioning, your assorted insurances, and on and on.

I have absolutely no sympathy for dead-beats who want to park themselves at a table and purchase nothing.

Everyone who walks through the doors of an establishment enacts a cost to that business. The hinges on the door, the carpeting or flooring material, the fabric on the seat, the tabletop or tablecloth. The employee who cleans the toilet and bathroom, wipes the tables, cleans the glass.

This boneheaded squatters rights movement is wrong and the Democrats should tell these people to STFU, STFD and order something. But they won't. They want to 'discover' racism where there is none. As a divide. The word for that is that they are 'divisive' -- as an election strategy. It's reprehensible.

846 As an American farmer I find it hilarious when no nothings rail against the "corn subsidy". I get a grand total of $9 an acre from the govt. I will gladly give it up if I don't have to pay for your social security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, flood insurance, and the myriad forms of corporate welfare your companies receive.

Posted by: Callister Raine at April 20, 2018 01:24 PM (z3AWL)

847 $9 acre? That must be why Archer Daniels Midland is a mom and pop organization. Also, you proceed from the false assumption that I think other forms of corporate welfare are acceptable. They're not.
