    A Black Farmer Blows the Whistle on the Black Farmer Settlement - Big Government

    It's pretty obvious Pigford is being used not to help black farmers, but as "reparations" as liberals have wanted.

    As usual with liberals, instead of really trying to help someone, they are pushing a scam, and the American taxpayer, as usual, gets the shaft.

    When farmers, who are the ones who are supposed to benefit, can see this is scam, it becomes pretty obvious.

    He's right, this needs to be investigated as soon as the new Congress is seated.

    Taking a long hard look at ALL farm subsidies seems like a good idea.

    MOST of that money goes to fortune 500 AGRI-Corporations, of course, so don't count on us EVER solving that mess

    This isn't about farm subsidies. This is about out and out bald faced fraud.

    Extreme fraud. A lot of these checks aren't even going to farmers.

    It's "reparations' under another name, AND a vote buying scheme.

    Liberals are never honest about what they are doing. Like global warming, they are always pulling a scam.

    "backdoor welfare" is how someone put it yesterday. But in my world it's fraud and corruption.

    We need to stop federally backing farmers. It's a waste of everyone else money.

    Where else do you pay someone to build or grow a product, 'then' buy it from them on top of it?

    As far as the story goes, that could just be sour grapes. For a pig farmer, he sure knows a lot about drug dealers and hi neighbors business.

    You dumbshit. Farm subsidies is EXACTLY "out and out bald face fraud".....I so wish their was an IQ test people had to pass before they could post here. Showing how uneducated you are and how stupid you look, obviously is not enough of a deterrent for you.

    Faux outrage, is fun, TPS, eh?

    How about proving there is fraud before exclaiming there is?

    And Editec, I agree....all farm subsidies should be looked in to, or better yet....ceased.
