a long flame thread and i'm not involved? for shame!
i'm proud to say i have little opinion on rodeos. i've never seen one, and know little to nothing about them in general.
on the subject of farm subsidies: it does seem that we drain billions into misplaced farm policies. but it also appears that these subsidies are needed. this is yet another area i'm ignorant in, and unlike others in this thread, i know when to shut up.
