Looking at some of the pork included in the House and Senate emergency supplemental funding bills I am perplexed. $25 million for spinach growers because of the e-coli kerfuffle last year. Shouldn’t those spinach farmers be insured against crop loss? Wouldn’t that count as crop loss? And $40 million for peanut storage. Why store the peanuts? They can be sold or given to peoples around the world who need protein, they can be made into oil which can then be used as a bio-fuel like used fry oil from restaurants… Ewe lamb replacement and retention? Are ewe lambs not being given enough salary and benefits? Are they quitting?
