Two government programs I read about this week:
350 million is available as loans to small farmers in Va.. It can be used for seed, fertilizer and even for farm purchases. which begs the question, how can you be a small farmer if you don’t own a farm? Anyway, the requirements are 1. can’t qualify for a conventional loan (wonder why?) and 2. You must be any ethnicity other than Caucasian. This seems like reverse discrimination to me.
2. A grant is available to give the elderly $20 to purchase veggies from local farmers markets.
I really hope I’m not the only one that has issues with this misuse of tax dollars. These may not be big numbers but multiplied by the thousand of other give away programs, it adds up greatly.
