    Neil Young playing Farm Aid is a absolute oxymoron when one takes into account is his Luddite like view of modern farming.

    Yeah, that's what I said, too. Heard a commercial for it on a local classic rock station. Neil, Willie, Mellancamp, Dave Matthews, lot more. Inside a big hall.

    That's sorta the whole point, I think. Not that I really care, but I've never seen Neil.

    Start trade war with China over soybeans.
    American farmers lose profits.
    Drag out anyone alive willing to play to the hayseeds who forgot that trade wars are not easy.
    Cue billion $ farm relief bill in Congress right before elections to motivate the base.
    This reads like a bad novel from the '80's.

    Ug. I hear ya.

    As if the right-wing, rugged-individualist, pull-yourself-up-by-your-boot-straps, keep-the-gubermint-outta-my-land, Ima-grazing-my-animals-for-free-on-public-lands, and taxes-are-illegal-extortion type farmers and ranchers aren't subsidized enough already.
