“someone owes USTR a royalty payment”

Is that like the ‘royalty payments’ that various grateful parties (allegedly) made to senior members of FIFA?


When I read stuff like this, it brings this George Carlin rant to mind:


The government is just a middle man for business; waiting to be eliminated for greater efficiency.


For more enjoyment, and greater efficiency, consumption is being standardized.


I don’t think so. Corporations want government. It does all the dirty work of collecting the money and it absorbs all the losses.

It also acts as the punching bag for the masses, which prevents the corps from getting the finger pointed at them.
