"When the government picks winners and losers, taxpayers always get screwed."
Or as someone on TH said (sorry I can't give credit):
The government doesn't pick winners; they only pick losers. The winners don't need any help. Solyndra et al were big fat losers and couldn't (and shouldn't) have survived without *my* tax money.
I'm not saying the spotted owl is a big fat loser, but the Greenies' choosing of them as more worthy of living makes one wonder.
And playing God with the species *always* works out great........
(Why do Libs always seem to choose the loser? Is it because most Libs were the kid picked on in the locker room, and this is their revenge?)
