farm subsidies are absurd* Archived Message

That the meat and diary industry gets 2300x more govt subsidies than fruit & vegetable industry. $38B vs. $17M.
That is ####ing outrageous, and reducing those subsidies would be a great way to start turning American consumption towards a more balanced and sustainable way.
Note: by reduce meat I just try not to eat any meat on Monday & Tuesday.
