    Lol...trump's granddaddy amassed the family fortune running whorehouses and bilking prospectors in the Yukon during the gold rush, so lying runs in the family. He's already thrown the farmers under the bus to play his tariff games and has had to ladle billions of taxpayer money just to keep some of them afloat, so trotting them out on stage should be seen as adding insult to injury.
    He really does prey on the poorly educated and the gullible.

    Did he hand them bailout checks right there and then for his trade policy failures, or do those come in the mail?

    Huh?

    An OPINION Piece (from an Extreme RW Blog)? :smh:

    [​IMG]

    Anyway, I seriously doubt that the votes of a few farmers in Cali is going to reset the electorate.

    Anyway, the author is hideously misguided (and her OPINION is RW BS).:bored:

    Opinion, rightwing and BS should all be synonyms of one another at this point honestly.

    $28 BILLION to bail out the farmers from the losses his moronic tariffs inflicted on them, more than twice as much as Obama spent to bail out the domestic auto industry and it's millions of employees.

    The gold rush was dog eat dog, kill the guy jumping your claim and feed him to the grizzlies, no time outs, no safe spaces, no time for the weak, a time for the strongest to become wealthy. The descendants of the successful up there will naturally be fighters and tough.

    83% of farmers favor and approve of Trump.

    Makes perfect sense. The farmer is the person/couple/family/corporation who feeds us all.

    The message from mini Mike and the Dems is clear. Now they’ve lost Iowa, Wisconsin, and several purple farming states.

    People who know how to farm from Nebraska are pissed off at the dems, people from Missouri and Kentucky, too. These snowbirds have a lot to say in the Waffle house. Those are just the ones I've heard.

    compete fake news. https://www.fb.org/market-intel/the-verdict-is-in-farm-bankruptcies-up-in-2019

    "While well below historical highs, Chapter 12 family farm bankruptcies in 2019 incry eased by nearly 20% from the previous year, according to recently released data from the U.S. Courts. Compared with figures from over the last decade, the 20% increase trails only 2010, the year following the Great Recession, when Chapter 12 bankruptcies rose 33%."

    2019 was a tough year for farmers due to heavy rains, snow, and flooding.

    You mean that Trump DOESN'T Control the Weather?

    I thought all of his "supporters" considered him an Orange GOD-Emperor?

    [​IMG]

    Go figure.:flagus:

    Anyway, I am sure that these 3 farmers are just an early indication that the Cali Farmer Vote is gonna Flip Cali to the GOP.

    RIP Dems in Cali.:salute:

    Dems are apparently against crop insurance now. Remember they threatened to shut down the entire Dept of Ag in 2018 because the GOP wanted to require folks getting SNAP to at least apply for a job

    With the virus hitting China there will be no increase of Chinese farm imports in 2020.

    Really? You don't think it's important to eat when you are sick? Chicken noodle soup is great for the flu.
