ten most harmful government programs

Via Think Progress, we see that conservative paper Human Events has put together a panel of 36 distinguished public policy experts and scholars to compile a list of the ten most harmful government programs. Amazingly, neither the war in Iraq nor the war on drugs made the list but the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and bilingual education grants (!) did. Now, I bow to no man in my disdain for CPB and bilingual education, but come on! The war on drugs has had a hand in destroying so much of what conservatives supposedly hold dear (federalism, property rights, etc.) that it takes quite an act of denial to put teaching hispanics in their native tongue as a greater threat. Sheesh!
