The EU sense of humor.
It’s easy to pick on the EU’s operation in Brussels. When they aren’t spending six figures on cocktail parties, they choose to spend their time whining or condemning things normal people don’t even think to discuss. For example:
Brussels bureaucrats were ridiculed yesterday after banning drink manufacturers from claiming that water can prevent dehydration. EU officials concluded that, following a three-year investigation, there was no evidence to prove the previously undisputed fact.
I actually don’t mind the ridiculous claims by Brussels. That’s just fluff. Getting angry about this is akin to whining about earmarks; it’s good to make a point about the way government works, but it isn’t the biggest challenge government reform is facing.
The tough issues are the ones that aren’t so easy to read or to see. Nigel Farage had a pretty good rant that sums up the unwarranted political power that this three-ring circus has wrought.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Yes, but they’re symptomatic and highlight the lack of sense that afflicts so many bureaucrats.

Brought to you by the same people who declare the best way to address overwhelming debt is to spend more.
Usually millions are spent to prove the obvious. Now we’re disproving it.
It’s about time! You see now how even the alleged benefits of DHMO are false!
The science is settled… it’s time to ban DHMO!
Rants like that are why UKIP keeps picking up supporters in Britain – the Conservatives under Cameron are completely throwing in the towel on all of their promises with respect to Europe and so the truly Euroskeptic voters are heading for the exits and UKIP is pulling them in.
I believe that earmarks are actually a huge corrupting influence on Congress. On many tough votes that waste billions, Congressmen can be influenced by millions of other people’s money going back to their district. Its only pork if it’s spent in someone else’s district, right?
