Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, September 07, 2019

A Newsweek article in May detailed a Fox News interview with Patty Edelburg, vice president of the Washington-based National Farmers Union, which represents about 200,000 U.S. farms. In the interview she said, "It has been insane. We've had a lot of farmers"a lot more bankruptcies going on, a lot more farmer suicides. These things are highlighting many of the news stories in our local news." She added, "We have more commodities, more grain sitting on the ground now because we lost huge export markets. We've lost export markets that we've had for 30 years that we'll never get a chance to get back again. Farmers are hopeful to get their crops in the ground this year but really hopeful we have a place to sell it come fall."

Why is this article from Forbes a garbage thread?:

Editor's Pick
Amid Trump Tariffs, Farm Bankruptcies And Suicides Rise

It's about a week old, but that's the only potential strike I can see against it.

The day Rein disappears from this site is the day you know he was finally arrested and held without bail.

Trump would rather be photographed with Tiffany than tweet out a link to this story.

Interesting to see the Trumpists writing the farmers off in this way. Interesting but not unexpected.

Just wait....when farmer's go bankrupt, they ain't buying farm equipment. The ripple effect is just starting.

www.reuters.com

"chmidt says sales at his dealership, in general, declined by as much as 15% in the first half of the year, led by a fall in the demand for large equipment. In a sign of things to come, early orders for planting equipment for next season's soybean and corn crops are down up to 25%.

He is not alone. Half a dozen dealers of Deere's agriculture equipment across the Midwest shared similar accounts in interviews with Reuters. One of those dealers, in Geneseo, Illinois, said sales at his dealership were down 50% so far this year from the same period last year.

This is a worrying sign for Deere, which gets nearly 60% of its sales from the United States and Canada. The Moline, Illinois-based company is expected to report lower sales at its agriculture & turf segment when it reports its third-quarter earnings on Aug. 16. "
