Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
New York Times vindicates Andrew Breitbart - POLITICO.com
“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. – J Robert Oppenheimer.
It takes some guts to publicly say we were fooled, as well as an adult attitude.
This is my chief complain with the current administration. Too many programs. Too many competing agencies. Thus, agencies run amok(ish) such as BATFE causing embarrassment. They ned to spend more time "administrating" and less time self-publicizing.
Yes, this happens under every Administration. Look what the FBI did to us under Clinton and Bush. For those who have forgotten, the FBI knew that some very strange flying lessons were being paid for but they did not much about it.
I've always hear both sides insist that the SSM is supporting th opposition. Obviously, that's impossible. So, I don't take their musings as being absolute fact but I don't find them all that committed to anything but trying to sell the "news" they spend all that money gathering and delivering.
Just the tip of the iceberg really. It seems that our politicians are really dedicated to creating indirect personal gains for themselves and their chose ones. My friend calls this "collusive-capitalism) and that sums it up pretty well.
This isn't new although I think© that the rise in corruption really exploded under the Bush II admninistration and we entered an era where corruption became blatant. Obama, to my disappoinrment, has done little if anything to turn this around. It may be so far out of control that nothing will ever be done.
Reading my previous post, I see I put SSM instead of MSM. Alphabet soup.
