The latest efforts include a fantastic video from McDonald's that salutes dairy families and the contributions they make. The narrator says, "Dairy farming is a 365-day-a-year job." "Hard work gets started hours before the sun rises and ends long after it sets." Along with some fantastic pictures of farms, cows and people, he ends by saying, "From the rest of us who benefit from all that hard work, we can only say 'thanks.' What you do every day is truly amazing." To see the video for yourself, go to: At the same time, United Dairy Industry of Michigan has released a video recognizing dairy farmers. Along with heart warming pictures of farmers, the video says, "Dairy farmers' hands tell a story. With every wrinkle, every crease, hard work can be seen," "these same hands are the tools that feed families, towns, states and nations" and that "tirelessly chore; they tirelessly care; they tirelessly love." Check it out at: Tied to the video is a promotion with Kroger grocery stores to help those that have been hit hardest by the economic collapse of Detroit. Kroger's effort is called "Pour it Forward" that asks shoppers to donate a gallon of milk to the "Forgotten Harvest Rescue" which distributes food to needy families in the Detroit area. Within the first three days of the promotion, 18,400 gallons of milk had been donated. The latest videos and promotions follow on the heels of the Culver's "Thank You Farmers" cam- paign that asked the public to write a thank you note to farmers with the promise that Culver's would donate $1 to the National FFA Organiz- ation for each thank you note submitted. Apparently, people have a real appreciation for farmers and after running the promotion at 500 of their restaurants for four months; Culver's raised more than $220,735 for the National FFA Organization, local FFA chapters and farm fami- lies. One of the thank you notes read: "I want to thank EVERY FARMER for all their hard work and if it weren't for all of you, none of us would be eating, or fueling our vehicles. THANK YOU." Culver's has already announced plans to sup- port other farming organizations in 2014, including 4-H and K-12 agriculture programs. A big concern in agriculture is that with each generation, people are getting further and further away from the: farm and their opinions of farming are of Len influenced by organizations that have their own agenda with little respect for, or under- standing of modern agriculture. Thankfully, %ig business" has seen the wisdom of aligning itself with the farmers that make their business possible, recognizing their values, dedica- tion and the hard work they do to make sure we have a safe and quality food supply. This Thanksgiving lets give a big "Thank you" to our farmers. ...jus-sayn (Your thoughts? email me at: Copyright 2013 Strom Communications All rights reserved.

It would have been billions cheaper. The Supreme Court told us ACA was a tax, but that didn't resonate with us. The figures in your arti- cle verify do. There is something that came to light at Senate hearings last week that the public should know about the Affordable Care Act. When I was watching the senate hearings for the ACA last week on C-Span, HHS Secretary Sebe- lius was asked a direct question from a senator. The question- "were the "Navigator's hired by the government given back- ground checks?" The answer by HHS Sebelius was no. The "Navigators" are 60 thou- sand people hired by the govern- ment to help applicants sign up for Obamacare. People sign up by telephone if they don't have com- puter access. We have to give our Social Security numbers and oth- er private and sensitive informa- tion to people who could be crimi- nals. From the House hearings: "How can the public trust a hasti- ly thrown together system in which meeting a deadline was more important for the adminis- tration than conducting complete end-to-end testing of the site's se- curity," asked Rep. Fred Upton (R) of Michigan. "We'd like to know how the delays and rushed implementation have affected or complicated the ability to per- form the security work for the website." Democrats on the committee, while expressing concern about the website performance overall, suggested that the hearing was mainly a partisan attempt to raise public fears about the web- site's security - despite a lack of significant problems with it - in order to deflate public interest in the Affordable Care Act (a lack of significant problems with it)?
