Have you seen the USDA Cultural Sensitivity Training? And, by the way, we need a Farm Bill.

So, according to Congressman Graves’ most recent useless “Straight Talk” email he sends to his constituents, we need a Farm Bill. After you see these two videos you will be quickly reminded why we no longer “need” anything in Washington.

From TheBlaze.com

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is coming under fire for hosting a “compulsory”*  ”Cultural Sensitivity Training” program that required some intriguing participation of those in attendance. In addition to being implored to bang on tables, everyone in the room was instructed to chant, in unison, “The pilgrims were illegal aliens.”

But that’s not the full extent of the curious elements surrounding the session, as the lead trainer also joked that he doesn’t like the word “minorities” and that he prefers to replace it with “emerging majorities.”

After nine months of waiting for the government to release the video content, clips of the three-hour session were published this week by Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group. It was on May 18, 2012, that the organization first made a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to secure the footage.

Hey, Sam, say it with me! “Thank you black folks!”

Congressman, make sure you learn that “minority” is not the best word to use, can you say “emerging majorities?” Give me a “bam!”

One of the great ironies of this all is that the “Straight Talk” email appeared in my inbox on February 18. Judicial Watch broke this story on February 14.

“Straight Talk” should be used to educate and engage citizens about the corruption in Washington. Instead, Congressman Graves and his staff continue to send these emails out with the appearance that nothing is really wrong. Washington is completely out of touch and out of control! There should be no Farm Bill, there should be not one penny of funding given to the USDA until we can be assured that our money is not being wasted on foolishness like this!
