Billy Long: "Americans count on agriculture three times a day"

In the press release announcing his farm tour (do you think he'll tell the farmers he wants to end agricultural subsidies?), Billy Long is quoted as saying, "Americans count on agriculture three times a day."Chocolate “Porterhouse” for Two: Red Velvet “N.Y. Strip,” Frozen Mousse “Filet,” and White Chocolate Bone, $24.00.

"Americans count on agriculture three times a day."(Mmm, that steak looks good, doesn't it. In D.C. it's gonna set you back 44 bucks plus sides.)

Agriculture certainly plays a big role in Billy's daily grind as this selection of tweets from @Auctnr1 and @BillyISFEDUP attest:

At Big Cedar Lodge in Branson a friend introduced me to Joe Hickey owner of Washington, DC eatery Bobby Van's Grill - can't wait to try it.

20% of children living in the Ozarks are 'food insecure', which means one in five children in the Ozarks live in homes where an adequate supply of food is not present.

"Americans count on agriculture three times a day."

Maybe he should have said, "SOME Americans count on agriculture three times a day."

By the size of Billy, he depends on agriculture many times throughout the day.
