    As part of “a new era of civil rights” at the Department of Agriculture, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack announced Monday that Hispanic and women farmers and ranchers who believe USDA discriminated against them can file claims to get a piece of at least $1.33 billion in cash awards and tax relief payments and up to $160 million in farm debt relief, beginning this week.

    Women and Hispanic ranchers and farmers who feel the agency denied their loan or loan servicing applications because of their race or gender at various periods from 1981 to 2000 can file claims alleging discrimination from Sept. 24, 2012, to March 25, 2013, for a slice of the payout.

    When will folks in the oil business receive reparations for when Clinton allowed foreign countries to dump their crude on our markets at below cost? It drove thousands of companies out of business and resulted in the layoffs of tens of thousands employed.

    Another 1.3 billion of our hardearned tax dollars out the window.


    Every Hispanic and woman farmer will be signing up to collect some of that "free" money. Of course being a Govt program you can bet the recipients will be checked out from asshole to appetite.

    I won't hold my breath. How bout you??
