    WTO tells US to stop stealing my 30 bucks and giving it to Cotton Farming Corporations
    Posted under politics (my fav. vice) by tom (10.1.1.---)

    O.k. Not exactly, but close:

    http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/afp_world_business/view/82132/1/.html

    The WTO ruled that the US cotton subsidies encouraged over-production and "dumping".

    For a back story see below

    It is amusing that John Birchers and other conservative anti-(world)-government and anti-tax-and-spend types like me owe a debt of thanks to the WTO for at least TRYING (the US will probably appeal) to stop one of the more egregious wastes of U.S. taxpayer money. As does the rest of the world.

    If you haven't read my original post below already you really should.

    Posted under politics (my fav. vice) by tom (10.1.1.---)

    You have to be an idiot or a lawyer to think that the interstate commerce clause gives congress constitutional authority to legislate regarding domestic violence.
