This is a bunch of crap! This administration is doing everything they can to hasten the end of the Republic. I am white, male and now a retired senior citizen. I grew up and worked on a farm in farming communities amd larger cities and got paid because I did what was asked. I have been laid off from jobs, had my position eliminated, been fired, etc. But I also received promotions and raises over the years because, no matter what, I performed my job to the best of my ability. Never in 44 years of full time employment did I receive a job or promotion because I was white or male. For the government to redistribute income or "reparations" is absurd. If this country was such a bad place, then why do so many people come here illegally? Because it is a whole lot better than where they used to live.
- My great-grandfather settled in Southeast Kansas after the Civil War and worked hard on the family farm. At one time four generations of my family were busy thrashing wheat in the hot summer sun. My grandfather was driving the tractor pulling a hay wagon on his 90th birthday. My uncle, over 90, still manages the farm. The Federal government never provided any financial help to them except as provided to all farmers. To have this administration dole out money without documentation is criminal. This country is going down the proverbial sewer precisely because of those who think they are entitled to something but never did anything to earn it. While there may be a small few of the target groups who may really have a valid claim that the USDA failed them, there are many white male farmers who could say the same thing. We have a government that is more interested in "buying" a group of people than in making sure laws are followed fairly for everyone. And the media and those that are supposed to be a check against the government are not doing anything to prevent these abuses. It reminds me of the numerous documentated cases of illegal aliens who filed taxes using the Federal ID number and filed for 15 or 20 dependents who "live with them" but were actually in Mexico. As a result, they received thousands of $ beyond any taxes they paid in. And it was discovered numerous tax returns like this were all being sent to the same address. When honest IRS employees alerted supervisors to the fraud taking place, they were told to shut up and ignore the discrepancies and process the returns. We need to have some "Mr. Smith" go to Washington and clean the place of all the vermin that is there now.
