Something Queer Going on in Farmland…

The Agriculture Dept. is running a “rural pride” campaign.

“In 1790, farmers were 90 percent of the U.S. labor force,” writes economist Walter Williams. “By 1900, about 41 percent of our labor force was employed in agriculture. Today, less than 3 percent of Americans are employed in agriculture.” You know what makes up an even smaller percentage? Lesbian farmers. Yet Barack Obama’s Department of Agriculture has begun a “rural pride” campaign to address this pressing issue.

“The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Civil Rights, in collaboration with the National Center for Lesbian Rights and The True Colors Fund, will engage with LGBT rural communities across the country to host the LGBT Rural Summit Series,” the USDA says. “Each series will offer a unique opportunity for USDA and other federal agencies to share information relating to policies, programs, and services that exist to protect, promote and strengthen LGBT rural communities.”

According to the Washington Free Beacon, “The all-day summit will teach lesbian and transgender hillbillies how to get subsidies from the government like rural housing loans and ‘community facility grants.’ Bullying will also be discussed.”

And who better to headline this event for farmers and rural citizens than … rock star Cyndi Lauper, born in Queens and a figurehead for the homosexual agenda. The big question here is simple: Where does the Constitution enumerate the power for government to waste taxpayer dollars in such a manner? The USDA’s answer may, in effect, be the title of one of Lauper’s hits: “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.”
