2012 Farm Bill Cop Out!

The last debate and the prior one left out a critical topic not even being talked about in most of the media these days. Agriculture is being totally ignored. After extremists blocked action on the Farm Bill because Republicans couldn't decide if hungry people in this country deserved to eat and buy food with food stamps, they just left town without any resolution leaving one of the biggest parts of the budget hanging in the air! No mention also of GMO seeds, a biased agriculture department crammed with former Monsanto Execs. No farm insurance reforms, no cutting back of subsidies to millionaire farmers and so many other critical issues facing not just the US but mankind itself. None of this other stuff we're chattering about will matter if we're all going to starve to death because we don't manage our soil and resources for the benefit of the many over the few.
Do you know what this is?
