Throwing the Union a Bone

Viagra, Cialis and other erectile dysfunction drugs are costing General Motors Corp. a hefty sum. The company spends $17-million (U.S.) annually on such drugs, said GM spokeswoman Sharon Baldwin.

I wonder if Belloc would get a chuckle out of this: the corporate father providing penises to their workers. Chesterton wrote of Hudge and Grudge (big business and big government), but this kind of absurdity is more of a case of Hudge and Gudge and Won’t Budge: big business, big government, and big union.
