I root for the Cleve Browns even though they have zero chance of winning the super bowl. Chance of winning doesn't come into play on this obsession - doesn't come into play when I vote either. I vote for what I want - I do not "settle"..

The goal this year is not to win its to get 5% of the vote so ballot access is not an issue in four years. Right up until about a month and a half ago the Libertarians were doing little if any campaigning. They were fighting court battles the GOP brought against them. And it was the same with the Green and Constitution partys to get on the ballot. Its hard to fund raise when you can't campaign…

What we need is a better voting system...like the Borda method. Then the 3rd party candidate most assuredly would have a chance....but for just that reason you'll never see it....the controlling parties not wanting a 3rd party to have any chance. Plus it's a bit difficult to count unless you are computerized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count

Monsanto presented a check for $2,500 to the Farm Bureau Foundation

The Adams County Farm Bureau celebrated its 100th anniversary with a dinner at the Oakley Lindsay Center Thursday night. 

Guest speaker Max Armstrong spoke with farmers and agribusiness representatives about the need to tell their story to consumers and to policy makers alike. 

During the celebration, Monsanto presented a check for 25 hundred dollars to the Farm Bureau Foundation. 

The money comes from Monsanto's America's Farmers Grow Communities fund in which local farmers enter a drawing to win the honor of naming the organization they would like to help. 

Tammie Smith was the winner in Adams County and she says she chose the Farm Bureau Foundation which funds Ag in the Classroom so that others youngsters could have the same experience as her 2 year old grandson when he visits the farm. 

"It's hearing him and his excitement, as little as he is, realizing there's not a lot of children that have an opportunity to really know what's goes on, on a farm," Smith said. 

Smith noted that when people, especially children in big cities talk about where their food comes from, "they think their food, their milk just come from a grocery store." 

In addition to Ag in the Classroom - the Farm Bureau Foundation funds scholarships.
