Creekstone Farms

In politics these days there is a lot of fake outrage. It's a bipartisan game and democrats and republicans are equally guilty. What worries me is that all this fake outrage seems to distract people from cases where they should be outraged

In the Creekstone Farm case even USA Today, not renowned for their radical politics, seem to be a bit shocked. The response from politicians? Deafening silence.

"In a nation dedicated to free market competition," says John Stewart, CEO of Creekstone, which is suing USDA, "a company that wants to do more than is required to ensure the quality of its product and to satisfy customer demand should be allowed to do so."

When regulators disagree with reasoning like that, you know the game is rigged.
