This made me want to cry. Seriously. A bad day in America. H/T @Instapundit

  • Wow! Finally a trend where Vermont is actually ahead of the nation, instead of behind the times.

    Wait, that’s not something to be proud of, is it? 😉

    Statistics from nearly a decade ago show that there are three times more workers in the Ag Dept than there are farmers. Wonder why your food is getting more expensive in the most awesome, agriculturally productive country in the world(beside Israel)?

    I think P.J.O’Rourke defined the leftists’ view of an ideal economy as one in which half the work force was employed by the government and the other half was on government assistance.
    We’re well on our way.
