Introduced me to a few issues. - We are 50% corn. Cheap starch from corn is bad for America. It’s subsidized heavily for no good reason and the externalized costs are incalculably high. - Contemporary Farms are not our cartoonish stereotype of smiling piggies and a haystack. They are sick animals in concentration camps dying in mental and physical pain. Some people will automatically scoff at this assertion without any analysis or firsthand knowledge.

"that cannabis may one day be used to help people suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome" not to mention hemp, which grows annually, can be used to make: paper, rope, clothes, candles, balms, packaging, on and on and on... but of course, our gov't would have to legalize the plant and go against all the $$$ from major chemical, lumber, ag, and on and on lobbyists.. Too bad too many of our representatives work for their own $$$ gain and not to benefit our country and our people.

corn is in almost all the soft drinks, feeds cattle that feeds our fat a$$es and drains the land. Yet it is subsidized???

Corn on the cob, a nice big hamberger and a bottle of beer on a hot day is the best.

hear you on all accounts.. the corn the other posters are referring to is different than sweet corn, which makes up about 1% of all corn grown in the USA.. Also, beef that feeds on grass tastes much better then beef that feeds on corn fed.
