|Cache||UPDATE 10/7: I think farmers have had enough, maybe, I hope anyway...|
1. “I went to Madison feeling financially scared and emotionally depressed but hopeful,” said Paul Adams, who runs a 500-cow organic dairy near Eleva, WI."I came home feeling financially scared, emotionally depressed, unwanted, and unneeded.”Danielle Erdvick summed it up this way in the story:
But I sense a fire growing in the belly of the family farmers I meet in my work with Farmers Union. Farmers are weary. But there’s a growing flicker that’s starting to feed a change in the narrative. No more will they be spoon-fed a top-down vision for rural America. Instead, I see a drive for a farmscape where fair prices, local food systems, clean water, and land conservation are at the heart of farm policy. How can we achieve it? It’ll take actually enforcing America’s antitrust laws and holding corporations accountable when they try to monopolize an industry. It’ll mean addressing market manipulation. It’ll mean not raising our hackles, as farmers and ag groups, every time someone wants to talk about clean water or livestock siting. It’ll mean continuing to adopt regenerative practices and thinking outside the box so we’re protecting our natural resources for our children and grandchildren.__________________________________________________________________________________________________
Farmers will never stop voting for Republicans. Sadly, GOP promises of "small government" simply mean they don't really have to do anything for their constituents, and deregulation is anything that basically leaves them alone.
Tariff War is not Their Fight: It seems farmers are okay sacrificing their livelihoods for big corporate interests seeking intellectual rights and protections.
And then the last shoe dropped; Ag Sec. Sonny Perdue told us what big corporate Republican politicians were really thinking about family farmers:
Perdue told reporters that he doesn’t know if the family dairy farm can survive as the industry moves toward a factory farm model ... “In America, the big get bigger and the small go out. I don’t think in America we, for any small business, we have a guaranteed income or guaranteed profitability.”A few farmers suddenly realized what was really going on...
Jerry Volenec, a fifth-generation Wisconsin dairy farmer with 330 cows, left the Perdue event feeling discouraged about his future. “What I heard today from the secretary of agriculture is there’s no place for me. Can I get some support from my state and federal government?"Democrats, Governor Tony Evers backs Family Farms, despite never getting their vote, but after Sonny Perdue's comment, even our laid back Gov. had to say something:
"Are they struggling? Absolutely. But I think at the end of the day we need to get behind them rather than saying, ah maybe you should go larger. I, frankly, resent that the Department of Agriculture secretary from the federal government came in and kind of lambasted them."
But don't take Evers word for it, here's a comment made at the Minnesota Farmfest about CAFO's. Note: Why were visa's for dairy labor ever determined to be seasonal and not year around?:
Trump Piled on First: Remember this...
Wisconsin dairy farmers are still feeling the sting of Trump's visit to Milwaukee in July, where the president downplayed the suffocation felt by farmers here because of Trump's own tariffs.Farmer Response...:Trump: "Some of the farmers are doing well. ... We're over the hump. We're doing really well."
"If he's saying farmers are over the hump, he would be badly mistaken," said Darin Von Ruden, a third generation dairy farmer. "In order to get over the hump we need to stop losing dairy farms."From PBS's Market to Market: Trump's says farmers are happy...
Farmers are slamming Trump's $28 billion farm bailout — more than double Obama's 2009 payment to automakers — as a 'Band-Aid'.Perdue editorial doesn't repair Damage: Nope, his word salad backtrack to obscure how he really feels, is a little late. In fact, Perdue reminds farmers how this whole problem was really Trump creation:
Purdue: "President Donald Trump has made it his mission to support American agriculture and negotiate better trade deals so our productive farmers can sell their bounty around the globe."And don't forget how Scott Walker pushed oversupply in the dairy industry.
Here's what one farmer, "a great patriot," really thinks about Trump:
In Gays Mills, WI, over production and large dairy farms are locking many out of getting into farming. From WPT's Portraits from Rural Wisconsin:

Casting herself as an environmental expert, Judd attacked Palin for "casting aside science and championing the slaughter of wildlife." The video shows a wolf being shot, writhing in pain, with an ominous soundtrack throbbing and menacing photos of Palin flashing across the screen. "Riddled with gunshots, biting at their backs in agony, they die (pause for quiver) a brutal death," Judd enunciates slowly as wolf squeals punctuate the video.
Defenders of Wildlife assails Gov. Palin for proposing a $150 bounty for every wolf killed by aerial hunters. She's cruel and bloodthirsty, and she must be stopped!
It's a compelling black-and-white storyline. But like the world Judd inhabits, this plot is make-believe.
Fact is, the policy is intended to protect other animals -- moose and caribou -- from overpopulation of wolves. Alaskans rely on caribou and moose for food. Not all Americans care to live on environmentally correct starlet diets of tofu salad and Pinkberry yogurt.
Neither Palin nor the aerial hunters in those scary low-flying planes that have Judd quivering promote the program out of malice and animal insensitivity. On the contrary, they are the true compassionate conservationists. The bounty helped state biologists collecting wolf age data and provided incentives to reduce the wolf population when wildlife management efforts had fallen behind. This is about predator control. But to liberal, gun-control zealots thousands of miles away, it's all heartless murder.
Federal law makes specific exceptions to aerial hunting for the protection of "land, water, wildlife, livestock, domesticated animals, human life or crops." Targets are not limited to wolves. And, as Alaska wildlife officials note, the process is tightly controlled and "designed to sustain wolf populations in the future."
No matter. As Judd proclaimed, "It is time to stop Sarah Palin."
On a deadly serious note, Judd's selective concern for savagery is not lost on longtime observers of the activist entertainer's political forays. A militant, pro-choice feminist, Judd lashed out at the Republican ticket during the campaign: "[A] woman voting for McCain and Palin is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders." Yet, not a peep has been heard from Judd about the serial predators of Planned Parenthood who have been caught on tape urging young girls to cover up statutory rape to facilitate abortion procedures. And she won't be starring in any YouTube ads decrying grisly late-term abortion procedures.
In a starlet's world, "senseless savagery" only applies to the poster pet of the month.

The Babes challenge for August takes advantage of the summer fruit bounty (if possible), and the components can be prepared ahead of time to fit into busy schedules. The recipe comes from Zoë François and Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I always look forward to seeing how the bakers customize their breads based on individual preferences.
Won't you join us for the August bake?
Yeasted Blueberry Coffee Cake
Lukewarm water: 1 ½ cups/12 ounces/340 grams
Granulated yeast: 1 tablespoon/.35 ounce/10 grams
Kosher salt: 1 tablespoon/.6 ounce/17 grams
Large eggs, lightly beaten: 6/12 ounces/340 grams
Honey: ½ cup/6 ounces/170 grams
Unsalted butter, melted: 1 ½ cups (3 sticks)/12 ounces/340 grams
All-purpose flour: 7 cups/2 pounds, 3 ounces/990 grams
1. Mix the water, yeast, salt, eggs, honey, and melted butter in a 6-quart bowl or a lidded container.
2. Mix in the flour without kneading, using a Danish dough whisk, a spoon, or a heavy-duty stand mixer (with paddle). The dough will be loose but will firm up when chilled; don’t try to work with it before chilling.
3. Cover, loosely, allow to rest at room temperature for 2 hours, and then refrigerate.
4. The dough can be used as soon as it is thoroughly chilled, at least 3 hours. Refrigerate the container and use over the next 5 days.
The recipe can be halved. If you halve it, try to use a 3-quart container. (In a 2-quart container, the dough will rise above the top.) Even a half recipe will provide enough dough for two separate bakes.
Blueberry Skillet Jam
5 cups fresh or frozen wild blueberries (6 cups if you aren’t using the wild ones, since they are bigger)
1 cup sugar
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Cook the berries, sugar and lemon juice until the fruit juices are thick enough that you can run the spoon across the bottom of the pan and it doesn’t immediately fill in. It should be the consistency of honey.
I’m assuming a skillet was used; I used a small sauce pan, so the jam took longer to thicken.
You are welcome to experiment with other fruits.
This can be made ahead.
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
In a bowl mix together the flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Add the soft butter and work it into the sugar mixture with your fingers.
This can be made ahead.
Take 12 ounces of the brioche dough, or 16 ounces if you are using a 9” springform pan. (You can also use Whole Wheat brioche dough.)
Divide the dough into 3 pieces, shape them into balls and then roll out into disks that will fit comfortably into the springform pan. It’s okay if the edges go up slightly on the sides.
Lay one of the disks into the pan.
Cover with 1/3 of the jam, spreading out, but not quite to the edges.
Repeat this with the remaining two disks of dough and jam.
Cover the pan and allow to rest for 1 hour to 1 1/l2 hours, depending on the warmth of the kitchen.
While the coffee cake is resting and rising, set out or prepare the streusel topping.
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Add the streusel to the pan just before baking, otherwise it will get soggy from the jam.
Just scatter it over the top, so it is still in pieces, don’t press it down.
Bake for about 45 minutes. Let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing the sides of the pan.
Let cool for 20 minutes before cutting to allow the bread layers to set or cool longer and serve room temperature.
Have a slice!
The original recipe is here.
If you would like to bake along with us as a Buddy, send me a description of what you did and some photographs by August 29th, and I will publish them in the Buddy Roundup and send you a Buddy Badge. Email is jahunt22 at gmail.com.
Hope you enjoy it!

Crytek’s multiplayer bounty hunting PvP shooter Hunt: Showdown has finally made it to the Xbox One as a full release.
You can find a high-stakes magical journey from Rafael Albuquerque and Rafael Scavone in HIDDEN SOCIETY.
The press release follows:
Media Release -- Rafael Albuquerque (Eight, American Vampire) and Rafael Scavone (All-Star Batman, Hit-Girl In Rome), the team behind Neil Gaiman's A Study in Emerald, are teaming up once more in Hidden Society. Written by Rafael Scavone and illustrated by Rafael Albuquerque, Hidden Society invites you to peek into a dark world behind the curtain.
"After working on a book with the enigmatic 19th century London as the background, we thought that setting our first creator-owned book in the past was a good choice. New York in the 1970s shined like a good starting point for a story about magic, with all the decadence and violence around it. In Hidden Society, we created a place – with a Scorsese flair – filled with mysteries and magic, where complex characters have to team up and become the heroes those times needed." — Rafael Scavone and Rafael Albuquerque
