Raytown resident David G. Jungerman in the news again

David Jungerman, whose last 15 minutes of fame involved a missing Rolex (click here to learn more), has made the news again.  This time it is for putting a sign on a 45 foot long trailer in his Bates County cornfield.  The message on the sign is “Are you a Producer or Parasite” and “Democrats – Party of the Parasites”

For more on this story goto the Kansas City Star article.

UPDATE

It seems that Mr. Jungerman is not opposed to all government programs that hand out money.  A database of subsidies to farmer owners (click here to go to the source) shows he has accepted $140,949 in Disaster Subsidies and $954,152 in Commodity Subsidies for a total of $1,095,101 over the last 15 years.  Mr. Jungerman is the top recipient of farm aid in the 64133 and 64138 zip code area that includes almost all of Raytown by a wide margin (click here to see 64133 results).

The Kansas City Star has also run an article on this twist to the parasite story (click here to read it).

There seems to be more interesting documents and articles about Mr. Jungerman and his businesses. ChatterBox.com has dug up a couple more twists to this story (click here). 

This story has generated a lot of interest and a lot of comments. Unfortunately most the comments fail to meet our standards.  Comments about the values involved, facts, opinions etc. OK, but just calling Mr Jungerman names is a comment that will not get approved.  Yes I know that may be your opinion, but we prefer to keep this board rated G.  For further guidance on our standards, click on the about tab.

    From 1995-2005 Jungerman was subsidized to the tune of $1,095,101 gov’t dollars and the next greatest recipient in 64133 received $408,391. Jungerman, in the same geographic area, received almost 150% more in subsidies than the next landowning recipient. WHY?

    Does he own more land? Is he a piss poor farmer that grows the wrong crops to sell (but the right ones for subsidies), or does he just know how to milk the system or feed from the host?

  • […] sign guy. Not only is our farmer friend living off over $1 million in government farm, disaster and other subsidies, he also apparently ran a baby crib scam, which included “seminars” […]

    Well Holy Hypocrite – it’s my money, mine, mine, mine. Me, me, me…and this country he professes to love can go straight to 3rd world status, but he’s got his and a whole lot more.

  • […] David Jungerman represents this new GOP view. He’s a farmer and placed a sign on his tractor which stated: “Are you a Producer or Parasite” “Democrats – Party of the Parasites” […]
