I yam sad to see the final shutdown. I liked HGL, despite the hard knocks it got. That I liked it as a single player game and didn't care about the online portion may say something though.

"Farmers" (see below for what this means) have plenty of clout.  The U.S. farm lobby is pretty much the most powerful there is, except for maybe AIPAC (and even that's a close contest).  There is a reason you NEVER hear about reform of farm policy- not even usually a peep or a whisper from even the most renegade of Congressmen.   Believe me, the only thing worse than being accused of "not supporting the troops" is "not supporting the nation's farmers."

That being said, the farm lobby only protects the big agricorps and agribusinesses.  The family farmer is still poor and utterly fucked usually.

All life begins with Nu and ends with Nu.  This is the truth!  This is my belief! At least for now...

It doesn't.  However we willingly keep them sub-human by not allowing them cable access, and thus continue to not care bout them.


That's even funnier if you just ignore  Merusk's reply and tie it to IainC's  Ohhhhh, I see.
