Oh fuck that! Farmers are the hugest welfare queens. They need less subsidies, not more. Less subsidies would probably force them to grow something other than corn (which mostly ends up as high fructose corn syrup and other derivates) and soy. And the school lunches served in our nation's cafeterias are far from "decent." They're loaded in high-fructose corn syrup and fat and come frozen in cardboard boxes from huge corporations like Con-Agra and Sysco. Ever wonder why it's mostly poor people who are obese? It's because the food that's bad for you, is also the cheapest. I want children to have healthy free meals too, but I doubt this is the way.

P.S. I just finished "Omnivore's Dilemma," by Michael Pollan so I'm a little hyped up on this issue.
