    I’d have a hard time keeping a straight face while listening to a guy knowing that his name is Zippy.

    Saxby is a Republican so he’ll be there to support HB87, E-verify and reduce taxpayer subsidies, right ?

    “To discuss the Farm Bill process as well as listening to the concerns of farmers” Chambliss needs to come to Gwinnett or one of the large metro counties to listen to the concerns of the taxpayers and discuss the huge debt that he helped create.

  4. If it’s anything other than a proposal for complete separation of Farm and State (other than protecting the public from fraud and coercion), I’m not interested in hearing any more of his socialist/statist/crony policy proposals that limits competition/choices and cost taxpayers billions.

  5. Jack Greene says:

    I completely agree with Daniel. The whole subsidization thing clearly isn’t working. Something has to be done to stop politicians (whether left, center or right) from helping our their buddies. That’s why we’re in this mess to start with.
