Quote of the Day

Perversely, attempts to regulate the trade of minerals — like Section 1502 of the U.S. 2010 Dodd-Frank Act and a temporary mining ban imposed by the Congolese government from September 2010 to March 2011 — have enabled armed groups to strengthen their control over mines.
                     --Severine Autesserre,  "The Only Way to Help the Congo" in The New York Times

It seems another tea-party member is speaking out against the conflict mineral campaign. Seriously though, you've got to wonder when the cognitive dissonance is finally going to get to these guys.
