I'm definitely biased against the murderers and thieves of the US federal government.

That $500,000 is total sales. A family farm can sell over $500,000 and still make only $50,000 or so in profit. That is by no means a lot of money.

It's also not indexed for inflation, so when a loaf of bread costs a trillion dollars (as it does in Zimbabwe now) then every single farmer in the country will fall under this.

NOTHING good will come of this, even if the hysteria is overblown the bill is completely unecessary and won't make anyone or anything safe.
