High commodity prices could mean a big year for Minnesota's farmers, so long as the weather cooperates.

Higher prices? Seems like another opportunity to increase welfare - I mean, subsidies, for Minnesota farmers.

Doesn't matter, they'll find something to whine about while the kill the environment for that next bushel of corn. Wetlands? Who needs them...just drain them all and plant over them. I vote for ending ALL subsidies, and yes that means ALL of them.

Get rid of ethonal subsidies....many plants are owned by farmers and we can't afford to continue to subsidize the wealthy.

Seems like an excellent time to wean them off of subsidies.

Weaning farmers off subsidies means weaning consumers off subsidized food. No political party wants to take the blame for that!

I just can't find it in my heart to say its ok to make fuel for our cars out of food. That is just plain sick!

With these high prices this would be a good year to take away subsidies and put that money towards education.

My suggestion is to boycott ALL products produced by those subsidized farmers!! Then the whining will really begin... and it won't be from the farmers. It will be from the majority of the people how couldn't afford the actual price of a loaf of bread on a weekly basis.
