  •  Let me see if I understand this (5+ / 0-)

    he has a business model that depends upon:

    *dairy subsidies that use taxpayer money to keep artificially high prices on milk sold to drink, while requiring lower prices for processed milk, aka cheese;

    *farm subsidies that force the taxpayer, rather than the purchaser, to pay for the pork that goes into sausage and pepperoni;

    *lax enforcement of agricultural and environmental laws that make it okay to have vast lakes of hog-feces, all to make sure he pays bottom-dollar for pork;

    *roads, traffic signals, and traffic enforcement that allow him minimum-wage or lower drivers to deliver pizza;

    *telehpone lines created, often, by public entities, and always with the government (at least in using eminent domain for lines), to order the pizza

    all to quickly deliver mediocre pizza at rock-bottom prices, and he's griping out the evil government?

    I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

    Done with politics for the night? Have a nice glass of wine with Palate Press: The online wine magazine.
