      but think of all the non-agricultural lines of work where people are adversely affected by natural disasters and financial perils, and they have no recourse at all other than going on unemployment if they lose their jobs altogether.

      Those people work hard, but aren't eligible for subsidies.

      I doubt that the farmers think much of them either.
