What to make of the fact that there are twenty different federal program to "help the homeless"? Better yet, with the government's track record at "creating jobs," what does it mean when we find out that there are eighty different Washington programs that focus on "economic development"? Even the Soviet Union in its worst years couldn't pull that off.
Hundreds of billions of dollars a year go into this swamp. And nothing ever emerges from the primordial ooze we call the federal government. Except breathtakingly lucrative jobs for useless Washington bureaucrats who hand out blankets to those living under bridge beams - out of fifteen different programs - and those who have successfully delivered nine percent unemployment - out of eighty different "economic development" plans.
All the talk these days revolves around the horrid possibility that the government might have to "shut down" over a looming budget impasse. Me? Do it now. Drain that swamp. Start over. Our government is out of control and beyond "reform."
