Beaten To The Punch

Patrick beat me to today’s Amazingly Stupid Government Trick – when we are found to be subsidizing our cotton farmers so as to disadvantage more cost-efficient Brazilian cotton farmers, rather than agreeing to pay the sanctions, or to reform our cotton subsidies because we don’t need them in the first place, we choose instead to deficit-spend more to subsidize the Brazilian cotton farmers, too. If that doesn’t count as “Lighting Our Money On Fire” I don’t know what does.

As for blogging – well, I had work to do today. I guess Patrick didn’t.
