Simply said.....wow. I am proud yet saddend. I truly wish that all of government would heed these words of the farmer. I can understand why he said it. Charity is good, but, yes, it does need to begin at home. If the congressman, senator, representative...feels that it is a just cause to help his neighbor, then let them dip into their own pockets to provide the help. The money in the treasury should not be used as such.
