We're joined today by sustainable family farmer JOHN GILBERT of Gibralter Farms, who believes we need more regulations, not less, to remain good stewards of the land, so that "humanity stays alive". Gilbert explains how many of his fellow farmers, in Iowa and elsewhere, have been misled about the recently withdrawn Waters of the United States Rule (WOTUS) and the so-called "death tax" by the agriculture lobbying group, American Farm Bureau, and the Republican party and its media outlets.
