So How’s Your Rainforest?

I know that most people who believe in government “solutions” to economic problems do so sincerely. I can’t understand the mental gymnastics necessary to believe that, and this thought is intended to point out the contortion.

Whenever you hear someone say that we need to raise taxes to get the money necessary to fix the economy, remember that they are using the same logic that would say: we need to harvest more teak to get the money necessary to save the rainforest.
