I think I will not raise hogs too!!!.....from Vickie Kidd

Dear Secretary of Agriculture,

My friends, Darryl and Janice, over at Jonestown, Oklahoma, received a check the other day for $1,000 from the government for not raising hogs. So, I want to go into the "not raising hogs" business myself next year. What I want to know is, in your opinion, what is the best type of farm not to raise hogs on, and what is the best breed of hogs not to raise? I want to be sure that I approach this endeavor in keeping with all government policies. I would prefer not to raise Razor hogs, but if that is not a good breed not to raise, then I can just as easily not raise Yorkshires or Durocs.

As I see it, the hardest part of this program will be keeping an accurate inventory of how many hogs I haven't raised. If I can get $1,000 for not raising 50 hogs, will I get $2,000 for not raising 100 hogs? I plan to operate on a small scale at first, holding myself down to about 4,000 "not raised" hogs, which will give me $80,000 income the first year.

Now another thing: these hogs I will not raise will not eat 100,000 bushels of corn. I understand that you also pay farmers for not raising corn and wheat. Will I qualify for payments for not raising wheat and corn not to feed the 4,000 hogs I am not going to raise? I want to get started not feeding as soon as possible, as this seems to be a good time of the year to not raise hogs and grain. I am also considering the "not milking cows" business, so please send me any information on that also.

In view of these circumstances, I understand that the government will consider me totally unemployed, so I plan to file for unemployment and food stamps as well. Be assured that you will have my vote in the coming elections.

Patriotically yours,

Duster Benton

P.S. Would you please notify me when you plan to distribute more free cheese?

Holden Beach Truck Photo...The RR

Almost everyone I know that voted for Barack the first time has told me they won't do it again. Interesting the reasons. They didn't think that he would actually do what he said he would do. They didn't even listen to what he said he would do. They fear him appointing another Supreme Court Justice for their gun rights are among the reasons I have heard.
The good old boys in down east NC seem to have soured on Hussein also and they have been pretty loyal Libbie's up 'til now. I don't think NC will go for the big O this election in spite of Democrat National Conventions and light rail give away boondoggles to Charlotte.
