    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.

    funny The Best Coverage

    Very funny, and pretty much sums it up. My favorite part is John's attribiting, to the prosecuter, the quote: "now I have to go arrest every single other person on wall street". [...]

    Sloth What's so great about the _Gilmore Girls_?

    Let me tell you.

    It's not just the patter. Patter is great, don't get me wrong. The fast paced, reference laden, sarcastic back and forth that I am always such a sucker for is certainly the first thing that I liked about the show and what kept me [...]
