B.S. response from one of the senators that 'represent' me:
Thank you for contacting me regarding the reauthorization of the Farm Bill. I welcome your thoughts and comments.
The Farm Bill authorization process allows Congress to address comprehensively critical agriculture and food issues. The bill historically contains sections covering support for livestock, agriculture research, crops and several other related programs. The current Farm Bill is authorized through fiscal year (FY) 2012.
We must ensure that our nation's farmlands and ranches are supported to strengthen Texasâ€™ economy and jobs. Agriculture is a vital industry for our nation and an important part of the Texas economy. In fact, agriculture is one of the largest industries in Texas, generating nearly $80 billion annually for our economy.
The new Farm Bill should continue to provide farmers and ranchers with an important safety net for production. The disaster assistance program and the revenue-based counter-cyclical program give producers certainty and should continue to be funded into the future. With this measure of security, Texas farmers and ranchers can plant and harvest the food and fiber on which consumers rely.
I am committed to supporting our farmlands and ranches in a fiscally responsible manner. I do not believe that non-agricultural programs should be funded in Congress through harmful budget cuts to the Texas farming and ranching community.
I appreciate hearing from you, and I hope that you will not hesitate to contact me on any issue that is important to you.

United States Senator
Blah, blah, blah, jobs, blah, blah. Same reason we must subsidize huge corporations to keep drilling, refining and pulverizing mountains for carbon fuels to burn despite the fact that the planet makes tons of energy that doesn't require burning anything and there are tons of jobs involved in obtaining that energy.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.
[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.
Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.
Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
