"In my opinion the two most egregious, sinful miscarriages of justice that are codified into our domestic policy are the subsidies payed to corn farmers and the for-profit prison system" From this post: http://hubski.com/pub?id=30626

You're actually right, my sincere apologies. Here is a link from the NYTimes. They expired recently: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/02/business/energy-environment/after-three-decades-federal-tax-credit-for-ethanol-expires.html

Sorry about that, and thanks for the "facts" --appreciated.
