Well! That's a very grown up reply. But you didn't answer why there are no protest in Chicago when a 9-year old black child is executed, not just killed but executed! You have such insight on the black man riddle me that.

The racist were in Ferguson. If the people in Ferguson were concerned about black men being killed they would have been having marches for months about the killings in Chicago but there were none. Not one. Only when a black criminal was shot by a white cop is there a protest. A 9-year old child is executed and not one protester!! Why not? To my way of thinking that is racist.

You are the one calling names,"Your comment here is incredibly stupid," your comment not mine. Then you call a Marine who suffers from PTDS a "dumbass for not reading a sign at a confusing border crossing. Where is your respect sir?

I think another cop hit the murderous cop to help cover up the murder. The same cop who supposedly leaked this BS story, is probably the one who hit him.

Last chance at Farm Bill comes this week

6 months, 3 weeks ago From Illinoisagconnection.com

Lawmakers were working on a plan over the weekend to complete the contentious farm bill in the House, with a final chamber vote as early as Wednesday. The $500 billion measure has stalled in Congress largely over the House and Senate disagreeing about cuts to its $80 billion food stamps program and developing new policies for the dairy title.

However, Fox News reported on Sunday that a compromise has purportedly been reached that calls for roughly $9 billion in cuts to food stamps over the next 10 years. The original Senate bill called for $4 billion. Last June, the House rejected a $20 billion cut as not being enough and could only approve a new plan with $40 billion in cuts.

Two sources with direct knowledge of the talks say they hope to file a final conference report Monday and vote in the House by Wednesday.

Other issues delaying the bill include how much milk the federal government should buy to artificially sustain prices and pay producers, the size of cages in which chickens are raised and the cap for direct payments to farm families.

Congress failing to finish the bill by the end of last year raised the possibility the country could revert to 1949 law, which some agricultural economists predicting would increase the price of milk to $8 a gallon.

The bill was supposed to be replaced in 2012, but Congress has instead passed a series of extension.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has now allowed the decades-old law to take effect, as Democrats and Republicans from both chambers continued to craft a plan behind closed doors.
