I am going to plead my ignorance. Who is the Womaan on SCOTUS that is not a lawyer? Does that mean she has no degree in law of that she has never practiced Law. I am too tired to Google it.

Default Money is how the left compensates for lack of creativity.

USDA's goals


Strategic Goals for FY2018-2022
  1. Ensure USDA programs are delivered efficiently, effectively, and with integrity and a focus on customer service.
  2. Maximize the ability of American agricultural producers to prosper by feeding and clothing the world.
  3. Promote American agricultural products and exports.
  4. Facilitate rural prosperity and economic development.
  5. Strengthen the stewardship of private lands through technology and research.
  6. Foster productive and sustainable use of our National Forest System Lands.
  7. Provide all Americans access to a safe, nutritious and secure food supply.
A scientist is not necessarily the best choice to head the USDA considering its goals.


Science alone is useless unless it can be communicated and explained, not the forte of many doctored 'scientists' engaged in narrow focused fields of research.


Customer service? what scientist has the background to serve as a communicator. Sure some maybe qualified, more likely a non scientist would be that person.


Amazing how restricted the thought process of the left has devolved!


Drain the swamp, generate diversity of ideas and the left is against what they claim to embrace. the left clings to their tradition and legacy.


The left thinks demographic diversity is the equivalent of the diversity of ideas from individuals, no matter their demographic or ethnic categorization.


Stunted thinking, lack of creativity and imagination is replaced by train loads of taxpayer money according to the left's way of thinking. Taxpayer Money is how the left compensates for lack of creativity.

I don't think this Jungian President favors evidence-based policies. He'll just go with his gut feel, or whatever was last whispered in his ear.

Some of the things overseen by the USDA have absolutely nothing to do with AGRICULTURE. FOR INSTANCE: S.N.A.P or EBT (Food Stamps) are welfare programs and have absolutely NOTHING to do with AGRICULTURE.

Things I think we should do to help AGRICULTURE:
1. HEMP fiber COULD replace COTTON as the go to textile in the World. However we have ZILCH in any State in the USA to process HEMP. HEMP can be produced with very little IRRIGATION. WATERshortages are becoming critical in many states where HMP could be grown ideally. Financing will be needed to build the HEMP Infrastructure.
2. WATER: Shortages ahead West of the Mississippi RIVER. See #1 for partial solution.
3. ETHANOL. Corn is the major commodity needed for ETHANOL production. CORN requires HUGE amounts of WATER for irrigation in STATES like Kansas, Nebraska where HEMP could be grown without irrigation. Take these States out of CORN production and replace with HEMP and CORN prices in states like Ohio, Iowa and Illinois will make profitability possible again.

Factory Farms have replaced the FAMILY farms in the last one hundred years. Economy of scale and efficiency has been the driving force behind this. DIVERSITY is a BUZZ word we hear quite often. DIVERSITY in Agriculture would be a great benefit to us all. Just HOW to do this I have no clue. Smarter brains in the USDA should be working toward this. Actual Scientists not PR people.
