"If winning isn't everything, why do they keep score?" - Vince Lombardi

***

One of the bullshit arguments the PSC microchip comes up with is that those on whom scrutiny would naturally fall due to their being in a position to profit from improper influence should be subject to the same standards as normal people. Of course, this holds no salt elsewhere, ergo corporate disclosure; lucky draws and contests not being open to employees of the companies involved and their family members; campaign finance issues and scandals involving the peddling of political influence.

Hell, even in the SAF, the White Horse system, officially at least, discriminated against those who were judged to be in a position to benefit from undue influence.

At this point, the PSC microchip, since it has defended the White Horse system in the past, would probably short circuit, or come up with an even more ridiculous fudge to justify the double standards of double standards. But then, this has always been the land of queer logic, in certain spheres at least.

I'd like to see the PSC microchip justify Yukos expropriation and other Russian shenanigans. Given what it has accomplished so far (eg suggesting that the Chairman of the Fed is not independent and that using the machinery of the state to imprison your political opponents is not wrong), it would not be difficult.
