25. Farms growing corn for ethanol need to be bought out and restored to their natural state.

And then repopulated with their natural fauna, wolves and all...

The cult of the farmer and rural america needs to die.

No, this is not sound Democratic policy. I'm a radical environmentalist.

But I'll ALWAYS vote Democratic because Republicans are always worse, supporting bullshit like this.

Actually Republican don't give a shit about farmers, whether they live or die, their struggles, except as rubes they can con out of their votes -- making them vote against their own best interests and the people of the United States by bamboozling them with shit legislation like this.

I remember when rural people were skeptical of big New York City con men like Trump. What happened? I'm pretty sure it was Fox News and hate radio. Like the corn ethanol industry, commercial broadcasting needs to be shut down. Just a few big dirty money entities have captured entire radio spectrums for their own commercial, political, and religious purposes. Yet the radio spectrum belongs to the people, just like air. It's our right and our duty to keep it clean.

In the modern digital age, ANYONE ought to be able to open a radio or television station, limited only by the time they are willing to invest, and the size of the electric bill they are willing to pay. But only one station each, with limitations on commercial national syndicated content to maybe four hours a day, all other content having local origin -- local disc jockeys, local news people, locally produced commercial, locally produced shows.
