Politics of the Plate: Selling the Farm

It was not a decision they wanted to make. A fit, vigorous 62-year-old, Borland could have kept working. His son, who is 35 and has two sons of his own, was once interested in taking over. But the dismal prices that dairy farmers are receiving for their milk forced the Borlands to sell. “We’ve gone through hard times and low milk prices before,” said Borland’s wife, Carol, a retired United Methodist minister. “This time there doesn’t seem to be any light at the end of the tunnel. There’s no sense working that hard when you’re 62 just to go into debt.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WE are all being taxed into hopeless debt so that the Federal Government can send your money to Israel, spend it on bombs to kill brown people all over planet Earth, and oh yes, tithe the newly emergent global oligarchy to save us all from human-caused global warming.

And they will get away with it as long as you continue to allow it to happen.
