    That add could have just as easily been directed at Trump.
    Except ranchers love Trump, for good reasons. Talked to one this morning.

    I have absolutely zero love for Mike, and know how bad he would be for 2A rights if elected.

    That being said, considering that as of right now, the main contender for the Dems is Bernie, and he scares the absolute sh!t out of me, I'm loathe to speak badly of Mike or any of the other candidates.

    The cities send their enforcers into the rural areas. Some come back, some do not.
    OK...

    In the meantime, other American farmers decide to stand in solidarity with Californian farmers and refuse to sell foodstuffs to any California address (or anyone suspected of transshipping).
    Agriculture is now controlled by large multistate and multinational corporations.

    SF and LA can buy food...ÖÖÖ.from who knows where and at who knows what prices...ÖÖ..eventually food shortages and rationing will begin and the urban have nots are going to have a problem with the urban haves..
    They will buy it from the same large corporations they buy from now.

    What is this weird russobot argument that has suddenly sprung up?

    Farmers don't control the agriculture business.

    You can believe that farmers would never unite and you would be right....until they do.

    Any farmer across the globe that will sell it.

    So farmers are going to unionize? This does not bode well for the Republicans.

    My point is that there are a lot of independent operations. I believe the way tysons works, they donít actually own chicken farms.
