On the Fact that (According to Economic Historian, Clayton Coppin), in the Early 1900s, the Agriculture Department's Bureau of Animal Husbandry Had Once Sold Inside Information on Soon-to-Be Released Crop-Reports to Speculators Who In Turn Rewarded Agriculture Department Statisticians with a Percentage of the Profits

I think that anti Teddy Roosevelt polemicist, Jim Powell, probably said it best when he rhetorically asked, "Why would anybody believe the government could enforce honest dealings if the government itself was so easily corrupted?"......And not a lot has changed, eh folks?
