Now, I don't mean this to be a blanket indictment, but I've gotta say I don't have much faith in ANYTHING our federal government does. Or should I say TRIES to do. Yes, I'm sure there are some successes that go unreported, but when taken as a whole, our government does NOT impress.
Think about it: Natural disasters strike, and the boondoggle they call FEMA swings into action. They send in their army of bureaucrats and set up registration stations where the affected can sign up for gubment help. "Your gubment trailer is on the way!" *pay no attention to that outgassing thing that makes them dangerous to live in* "Oh, and feel free to help yourself to a complementary bag of ice."
And for our veterans, the ones who put their life on the line for us, the ones we solemnly promised to take care of if they were injured....do I need to list all the shortcomings of the VA? (It would fill multiple volumes.)
For a decade prior to 2008, up to this day, even, our federal financial regulators turned a blind eye to the unprecedented con job the banks were doing on the American people. "So you're broke? And you want a bailout? Sure....happy to help. Here's a coupla hundred billion bucks, and another few billion to fund a nice bonus for you fine gentlemen, too." Nice job guys. Thanks for looking out for the American people.
The DOJ developed a half baked idea to see where the Mexican drug cartels are getting their guns BY SELLING GUNS TO THEM OURSELVES. DUH!
Now Ebola has made it to our shores and the CDC tells a Dallas nurse on the Ebola-watch short list, "Aww, go ahead, get on the big 'ol jet plane and go visit mama in Cleveland. Never mind that pesky little fever." BRILLIANT!
I honestly believe the people we have working for us on the government payroll are the labor pool
The Peter Principle is alive and well. Can we just fire them all and start over?
