I have problems with farmers and problems with farmers from Iowa in particular. The cluster fark of using food stuffs for motor fuel, that is the ethanol mandate, was, and is, nothing more that a payoff to Iowa corn farmers. We would be all better off if Iowa farmers were more concerned about filling our bellies than our gas tanks.

That said, our once proud government of the people, for the people and by the people has devolved into government of the lawyers, for the lawyers and by the lawyers. The last thing we need is yet more lawyers in government. In face of that once Bruce Braley, candidate for United States Senator from Iowa goes all in for the greedy one percent which are the lawyers, video:


[I]f you help me win this race you may have someone with your background, your experience, your voice, someone who’s been literally fighting tort reform for thirty years, in a visible or public way, on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Or, you might have a farmer from Iowa who never went to law school, never practiced law, serving as the next Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Because, if Democrats lose the majority, Chuck Grassley will be the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

You can eat what an Iowa farmer produces. You can not eat a law suit.

Hat tip, reax and source: Dan McLaughlin, Red State.

Well done, Bruce Braley, well done. This might even get you 47% of the vote.

I admit that we actually do need some lawyers.   Yet does not even  pretend to he interested in the welfare of any non-lawyer.  At least some Iowa farmers attempt to grow food.
