USDA’s Budget Boom

Tad DeHaven charts and explains why the budget of the United States Department of Agriculture grows like a weed.

I have a story to share related to the USDA. My wife and I just came back from a trip abroad. One of the inspections of our luggage upon returning and entering the country was by the USDA. We had to put all luggage, fanny packs and all, on a conveyor belt. It went into a small room you could not see into. An orange sticker was placed on the bag and the bad came out the other end of the small room. Was anyone in the room? Were the bags scanned? X-rayed? Who knows, but a sticker was placed on the bag.
