I feel so safe with an organization that opposes Sharia law in the US judicial system! I must say I do employ the Farm Bureau to do my taxes and how do you think such an ALL AMERICAN group bills you for this service???? Well they charge on how much money you make,,, talk about SOCIALISM!!!! So you have a heavily conservative group which supported Romney and gave all sorts of rants about how our government is Socialist and now oppose Sharia law while charging members on how much money they make???? What next, guys?

The AFB is irrelevant and becomes more so each day. Narrow minded and self serving pseudo conservatives who berate the government and all things not like them until they have their hands out for their �hard earned� entitlements at which time government programs are great. Absolutely no worldly view. The origin of the modern day Tea Party.

Unknown - You are wrong again. My tax liability is major and the investment/profit guarantees and ag subsidies offered me are disgustingly large.
