A day does not pass without some Big Ag chieftain or Capitol Hill yakker parting their perpetually pursed lips to unleash total nonsense on you, me and the body politic.

To wit, the following quote, an answer given by a member of the U.S. Senate to an Aug. 25 question on who will be dominate 2012 Farm Bill discussions, Congress’s aggies or its appropriators.
“I think they will welcome our suggestions, and if we put together a farm bill that meets the number, that’s all that’s required of us, except that we are going to point out we’re going to do a great job – I don’t want to say reform – I just say that we’re going to do a great job to do everything to streamline, to combine purpose and combine programs when you have 10 or 12 programs that do the same thing.”
