EDITOR'S NOTE

GOOD AFTERNOON TO EVERYONE!

If you were thinking our utterly bankrupt, deficit-fueled super-government needed more to do, you'll be glad to know a new crusade against "racial discrimination" in our housing choices has been launched. The Department of Housing and Urban Development - which has not exactly presided over a string of successes in either housing or urban development - plans to impose a new policy called "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing."

The program will begin by creating a massive database on "segregation and discrimination in every single neighborhood." That's great, because what Americans really need is another government bureaucracy with a terminal case of mission creep assembling yet another massive database on their activities.

Once it has the data it needs to magically divine where "segregation and discrimination" exist (spoiler: they're going to find it in affluent neighborhoods with low minority populations) our noble crusaders at HUD will do... something. There are no specific policy recommendations included with the new rules. Which leads us to wonder why the hell a government that can't pay its bills, even though it gobbles up a shocking percentage of the U.S. economy, is wasting our time and money on another round of political theater.

We'd get less of this nonsense if we gave the State a small, fixed portion of our national income, and forced them to spend not a dollar more. But as it stands, thanks to the magic of deficits and high, absurdly unfair taxes, the Left doesn't have to short-change any of its constituencies when it declares each new waste of money.

When will they see that this is one bad recovery?
By: Larry Elder
