“These cherries are beautiful,” Santucci wrote on his Facebook page. “But, we have to dump 14 percent of our tart cherry crop on the ground to rot. Why? So we can the import of 200 million pounds of cherries from overseas! It just doesn’t seem right.”How are such rules, promulgated by the profoundly corrupt people who populate our federal government, tradable?
A tart cherry grower has a domestic market. He has customers. He should be an importer of tart cherries as well as a grower. It is foolish to say "this is stupid, evil" and then pout. Better to say "this is stupid, evil... and I'll make money off it."
If you can't make illegitimate money with your congressmen's venality, get rich, and then support your congressman's enemy then you do not belong in business.
