Ambivalence: BMulligan: Philip Francis Queeg: BMulligan: Nixon gave Earl Butz the task of addressing the problem with a very particular goal in mind

*snert*

Remember Earl Butz? He's the guy who had to resign when he publicly remarked, "I'll tell you what the coloreds want. It's three things: first, a tight pussy; second, loose shoes; and third, a warm place to shiat."

He did NOT say that....

**returning from google**

Holy shiat he DID say that! And we think our politicians are nasty.


Let's be honest here. Who really *doesn't* want those three things.

vygramul: We need to kill agriculture subsidies.


It's not that simple. While I recognize that farm subsidies are ripe for abuse and misuse, they were put in place to address a serious problem - erratic market pricing of agricultural goods. Before the current system was instituted, prices fluctuated wildly, leaving consumers in a lurch when prices soared, then leaving farmers impoverished when prices plummeted. I'm old enough to remember the pre-subsidy regime, and it wasn't pretty.

Nixon gave Earl Butz the task of addressing the problem with a very particular goal in mind - he wanted food prices to be taken completely off the table as a political issue. Think about it. Throughout human history, food prices have consistently been one of the most important political issues, but not in America since the Nixon administration. It's an extraordinary thing, really.

Sheeittt, the only thing that's changed is that Republicans have learned to speak in code while in public...welfare queen, 47%, free stuff, etc.
