    Do you realize that Nebraska receives more in Federal Funding than they pay in Federal Taxes?

    Nebraska is as much a part of the problems as those that live in buildings that leak.

    Agriculture income forcast is up 35% yet we still have the farm subsidy programs handing out Federal Tax Dollars. One mans justification of Federal Tax Dollars is another mans Entitlement Program.

    Take off your rose colored glasses.

  • Yes, I believe I do.

    To some degree, I agree.

    Agriculture is but one facet, but I was addressing Entitlements, and Welfare. Sorry I wasn't more specific with my words.

    I prefer seeing the Good, so no thanks. I am upset my echo-chamber generated the poem, but it did.

    If you are content with our present national situation, good on you, but, I happen to be concerned about the direction it is sliding. Isn't it fantastic, we are, IMO, living in the time of experiencing the close of the 'Church Age?' There is much going on, different than my imagination thought would be. Much fodder to Ponder, and chew on.

  • Arley,

    Where I grew up the LDS religion purchased private property close to Jr. and Senior High Schools and setup seminary programs that the students could attend as an elective course. Many did and still do.

    The Church Age is here to stay, it may have to adapt to the times and there lies the problem - how to proceed into the future while hanging onto the past.

    People like yourself hold the key Arley - heck, you even have me reading your articles.

    Take care of yourself.

  • Are farm subsidies entitlements? Cause I would bet that those cost far more than the "won't work" crowd (who aren't very costly at all actually).

  • Farm subsidies are for two reasons, Low food prices to consumer, and Business control of the farmer by Government.

    Entitlements, that part I mention, is, IMO, Taking from the worker, moneys to purchase votes from those who won't work, so the 'worker' ends up quitting ... Collapsing a of Way of Life ... a vital part of what is happening in America.

    Here is a Paul Harvey, 3 minute closing, where he addresses a better picture of what I addressed, much better than I, back in 1965:


    You may see a bit of what my generation sees, or should be seeing, as I see events transpiring, and winning the destruction of our country; very prophetic, IMHO.
