UPDATE: Which ought to be kept in mind while reading about stuff like this:
Financial regulation bill dictates ethnic, gender quotas:
This latest attempt by Congress to dictate what “fair” employment means is likely to encourage administrators and managers, in government and in the private sector, to hire women and minorities for the sake of appearances, even if some new hires are less qualified than other applicants. The result is likely to be redundant hiring and a wasteful expansion of payroll overhead.And greater cost to the consumer, who is also, by the way, the taxpayer paying for the state apparatus that will be put in place to keep track of all this. In other words, you.
It used to be stick up artists who said, "Your money or your life." Now the government is getting to the point of "Your money and your life."
Where you gonna run to?
