Here's a pretty picture of human nature at its brightest:
Indiana farmers voted for President Bush in large numbers, but they didn't know his next budget would immediately begin cutting farm programs.Don't we all.
"When farmers face increased costs for seed, feed and fertilizer and increases in property taxes, there's no way they can pass those costs along to the next level," Villwock said. "Farmers need a reliable safety net for when times get tough."
Let's see if I can explain what's going on here in simple terms. We had a certain amount of taxpayer money. Bush gave most of it to his friends and family. Then, he spent money we didn't have, and put the burden of debt on our children and grandchildren. That left us without enough money to pay our bills. And now, you folks who were so righteously indignant about other people's hand-outs and entitlements are learning that you're not going to get yours, either.
There's a lot of other stuff you're not going to get, and some of it is going to be very hard to live without. And you can't blame it on gays or liberals or Michael Moore. To use a homely agricultural metaphor, it's your own fault for putting the fox in charge of the henhouse.
Enjoy your "victory," folks. Here's hoping your fond memories of Bush's "mandate" will keep your bones warm when winter rolls around and you can't pay your heating bills.
