The War on Waste

USA Today reports:

President Obama seeks to revive an old war today -- the war on government waste.

Obama has appointed Vice President Biden to head up the Campaign to Cut Waste, a renewed effort to eliminate what the president called unnecessary government programs and "stupid spending that doesn't benefit anybody.

Anthony Gregory responds:
I do not want to understate the evil of government waste. A billion dollars stolen from taxpayers and sent down the drain is an injustice and a moral disgrace of national importance. But government is an organ of plunder, economic dislocation, mass imprisonment, social destruction, persecution and mass murder. Given that it steals our money—certainly a great evil in itself—we’re generally much better off the larger portion of its budget goes purely to waste.
