USDA Announces 38 Million Dollar Sugar Bailout to Prevent Big Sugar Bailout

Despite the near 17 TRILLION dollars in debt this country already has, and the complete failure of federal bailout programs throughout recent and past decades, and despite the Congress of the United States being on the brink of passing an unfunded 1 TRILLION dollar farm bill-which the house of representatives thankfully rejected 234-195-the United States Department of Agriculture has announced it will be spending 38 million dollars on a preventative sugar bailout.

The government logic behind the USDA’s plan to spend 38 million dollars in the sugar market has been shared with the individuals, families, and businesses who’s money will be used because that’s the level of transparency the Obama administration promises to deliver when it steals your money for something it needs.

The Department of Agriculture announced that it will implement an estimated 38 million dollar minor bailout in sugar purchases to ”forestall a larger bailout” that could range between 100 and 300 million dollars if farmers default on federal loans.

USDA was an implementation of Marx's agricultural plank

Other planks Lincoln enacted in law include a central bank, execution of rebels, an income tax etc.

Their are 435 Congressional districts and the USDA employees on average 200 agents per half a million citizens.

The USDA is unconstitutional and an utterly useless waste of money.

Are we talking "sugar"

Or sugar beets?

If you see something, say something, the government is listening.
Silence isn't golden, it's yellow.

I'm betting sugar beets.

When you see "sugar" listed among the ingredients on American products, it is almost certainly from sugar beets. (And those sugar beets are almost certainly GMOs.) If it were cane sugar, it would say so.

This is of course because

Sugar is such a major staple of the American diet.

Real World vs. Politics

Yes, in the political world, the more spectacular the failure, the more money we give them.

In a free market, it doesn't work that way. Only success is rewarded.

GMO sugar beets

aren't selling well? Is this another help-Monsanto law?

Or maybe we should let our

Or maybe we should let our farmers grow Hemp which actually has a market value beyond producing crap food and sugary drinks. Government is really good at quietly creating problems then turning around and presenting us with its own backward self serving solutions.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

Whats really strange is The corn lobby

has the sugar price fixed in the USA, so high fructose corn syrup can dominate entire markets in products like soft drinks.

Go across the border to Mexico and all the soft drinks such as coke are made with sugar, but not in the USA they all are made with HFCS.

So Stop Buying

Coke, Pepsi, and any soft drinks that have HFCS
