Farmers in America are killing themselves in staggering numbers

"Think about trying to live today on the income you had 15 years ago." That's how agriculture expert Chris Hurt describes the plight facing U.S. farmers today.

The unequal economy that's emerged over the past decade, combined with patchy access to health care in rural areas, have had a severe impact on the people growing America's food. Recent data shows just how much. Farmers are dying by suicide at a higher rate than any other occupational group, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The suicide rate in the field of farming, fishing and forestry is 84.5 per 100,000 people -- more than five times that of the population as a whole. That's even as the nation overall has seen an increase in suicide rates over the last 30 years. ...

The category of farmers also include fishermen and forestry workers. All 3 are very dangerous professions. And remember, suicide as cause of death on a death certificate is not frequently used, because the family does not want that to be on the public record, nor do news media want to report it.
I heard about a new express passenger train just started operating in SE Florida, called Brightline, and people have started to kill themselves by jumping in front of it.
It is interesting to compare these dangerous professions, along with roofers, construction workers, and convenience store clerks, with firemen and police. The latter groups can retire after 25 yrs with a large portion of their salary (more than 60 percent usually), but what about those roofers, farmers, fishers, etc?

Well, if you’re a cotton farmer and it’s your land and you get hailed out in October, you’re going to want crop insurance, and the RNC would wish that form of welfare to go away. All parties would rather a corporate farm did the bidding for commodities farming and thus could “ manage “ all things better. I just don’t know whether the difference between state managed farm and a corporate farm is any better. Both are out to go big and make serfs of all.

Oh, probably I'm not ignored because I'm correct. or at least the people I quote are such as the following one. He use Pew research data by the way.

Paul Krugman wrote:
There’s no mystery about the Republican agenda. For at least the past 40 years, the G.O.P.’s central policy goal has been upward redistribution of income: lower taxes for the wealthy, big cuts in programs that help the poor and the middle class. We’ve seen that agenda at work in the policies of every Republican president from Reagan to Trump, every budget proposal from party stars like Paul Ryan, the speaker of the House.

This policy agenda is, however, deeply unpopular. Only [URL=https://tinyurl.com/ybejvdeh]]]small minorities[/URL] of voters favor tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations; even [URL=https://tinyurl.com/ychddy52]]]smaller minorities[/URL] favor cuts in major social programs. So how does the G.O.P. stay politically competitive? The answer is that the party has mastered the tactics of bait and switch: pretending to stand for one thing, then doing something quite different in office....

Amen, Brothers and Sisters. Farming was never easy, but in the face of corporate farming, even family farms are forced to compromise standards for output.

It seems that the Lord's blessings on our land is being withdrawn. Our food supply is compromised per this story & discussion, our morals are compromised by liberal philosophies, and our future is compromised by the destruction of truth. National repentance needs to begin soonest.

I agree JAG from Miss.
He’s a liberal troll spreading his communism day and night on this forum.

If he was ignored, he would soon disappear.

I'm still confused why people attempt to converse with Jim Lincoln. I personally don't see why all commenters simply disregard all his repetitive post.

Jim; You have a great dier need of Christ for your own-self. Your Roman Road conversion, clearly has left you in the same state of being unregenerate, & your so called decisional regeneration is reflective of you being still a child of wrath amen.

LK 12:15,18, 20; And He said to them, “Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life doesn’t consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.” So he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns & build greater, & there I will store all my crops & my goods. & I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, & be merry.”’ But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?’

Extended credit/debt , competing against state controlled commodities, drought, and corporate farming gobbling up land and family farms and the lack of immigrants for work has become generational problem. We had a farm crisis in the 80’s and not much has changed.
Old farmers can’t transfer their farm to their kids because no one wants to be a farmer, works too hard and the pay out is nothing to pay down your debt from the previous years.

Jim, you might be interested to know the stats are from the Obama era.

Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, and Wisconsin are not all particularly S Baptist states, but many are liberal.

the progressive policies of the last 50 years are decimating every pocket of society.

agenda 21 wilded our lands, keeping younger generations from doing non gmo, sustainable farming, BLM has become a mil arm in the west with ranchers, as the land has resources for globlists, the gmos themselves have had devastating effects, add to that high taxes so that farms cannot be passed down through family.

the solutions are found in scripture.

how can we expect good fruit when we are a nation of gm corn and soy?

we are reaping what we have sown!

at this point in today's depression, there should be cries for local farming, neighborhood farming -- instead of pitbulls and HOA's there should be neighborhood baby chicken trading and carpenters to sell coops.

see Jim's comments, the left does not want the indigenous to escape the reservations they have made.

...the Republican Party has relied heavily on rural voters. And the most rural fifth of the population is also the most likely to live in a household that receives food stamps.

...food-stamp use is particularly high in key Trump strongholds such as rural Appalachia, the Ozarks and much of the rural South.

A similar pattern emerges in the counties with relatively large non-Hispanic white populations, many of which are also rural. The whitest fifth of counties is, by a narrower margin, also the most likely to receive food stamps. To be clear, this is only true of the whitest counties, not of white Americans as a whole....

A lot of this sounds like Southern Baptist country to me. It's time that they should start looking at [URL=https://tinyurl.com/gtbv58h]]]https://tinyurl.com/gtbv58h (A Conservative Case for the Welfare State)[/URL].
