This should piss off the steel industry and their fucking lobbyists.

I'm not saying that the steel industry here should tank, unless of course if they're sucking ass like the automotive industry. The thing that pisses me off about these recently-declared illegal tariffs is that they were essentially a handout to the steel industry that was wrought from heavy lobbying.

This, to me, is similar to the support the airline industry got after September 11th. The handout the airline industry got at the time may have been a good thing, but the fact that a big proponent of it was Tom Daschle, whose wife is a lobbyist for the airline industry, just shows how fucking dirty the whole system is. Oh, on second thought, maybe it wasn't such a good thing, since the airline industry was in trouble well before September 11th, and this was an opportunity for them to solve their problems without doing it themselves.

Only they didn't fix their problems, because they're at it again, asking for more government handouts. This time, I say fuck 'em. They had their chance before. Yes, I can understand that the war is causing lots of people to re-think their travel plans, but we can't be giving the airline industry freebies every time trouble shows up. That seems to go against this 'free market' thing I keep hearing about.

In a related story, Tom Daschle is getting 500% more blowjobs this week.
