In response to Travis Ulmer's comments on Oct. 11:

I feel there are two points to consider from the other side of the fence.

First, if farmers are actually getting ahead in the game with the CRP program, one would ask why all land isn't currently in CRP?

Second, if I have purchased and live in my own home, and need to receive heating assistance and food stamps to care for my family, does that give others the right to enter my home, take shelter, and eat my food because I have been receiving government assistance?
