  1. The Food-and-Supermarkets link is an excellent article. One point Pollan doesn’t explicitly make is critical. He notes that the “farm” bill, which is the culprit behind the skewed subsidies, is really a food bill, and that it concerns eaters as well as farmers. Only problem is: everyone’s an eater, but only 2% or so are farmers. At current rates, 60%-70% of eaters would not vote for Republicans or that agenda.

    If the subsidies changed, the Republicans would lose the farming states they’ve been buying for so long.

    It could be the end of the Republican party if they had so few Senators you wouldn’t even need to use your toes as well as fingers to count them.

    There’s even more than an agribusiness empire at stake here.
