American rice farmers are a little ticked off that Iraq’s Grain Board has decided to stop buying American rice. Seems the Iraqis owe it to “us.”
“That’s just not right,” [Texas rice farmer Ray] Stoesser fumed. “If we’ve got some rice to sell, they ought to pay a premium for it just because this is the country that freed them.”
Apparently being subsidized by only one government isn’t sufficient to make a living.
