Cheese. Colbért. USDA.

USDA is HIGHLY suspect in my book. That old food pyramid? Yeah, guess who put that thing together - yep, the food industry. Sure... they should be trusted to tell the consumers what to eat, right - I mean, it's not like they don't PROFIT madly from the result.

Believe what you want about Paleo this or Zone that or yada yada - them American companies sure know how to get the gov't working in their favour.

Yet another example in the link. Cheese. $12 million ad campaign funded by the taxpayers. Hey - how about not bailing out Domino's Pizza??

NO. COMPANY. IS. TOO BIG TO FAIL.

Innovate or die. Let the better solutions rise to the top. Meritocracy. Let the ones who build great products get the big money because the consumers like them - not because the government paid for an ad-campaign to make the consumers like them.
