Bill Moyers on the Farm Bill

Watch a short video podcast of Bill Moyers' view of the current Farm Bill. He expresses the ambivalence that many of us feels towards this irrational, corrupt, and unsustainable piece of legislation that nevertheless is tied to the welfare of many poor families through the funding of nutrition assistance and school lunch programs. Someone is going to have some political 'cojones' one day to clean up this mess. Obama leadership maybe?

Watch it at Bill Moyer's Journal.

While you are there why not see the Exposé segment on BPA in clear hard plastics, and the heroic work of the EPA in protecting us from corporate greed (tee hee hee, that's a joke).
