Will X-rays for our kidneys resemble the sort of scanning process and pat-downs we endure at airports? And the more the government seems to take over private enterprise — the car bailouts, the mortgage industry, student loans, wind and solar partnerships — the more private enterprise is frightened of being the next small guitar company or the next Chrysler creditor. Government seems now to be not only incompetent but arrogant, as if its vast recent growth ensured its impunity from oversight — whether in the GSA scandal, the Secret Service debacle, or the Fast and Furious mess.That's why Kimmel's crack at the WHCD--"everything that is wrong with America is here in this room tonight--sticks. All the self-congratulation and glitz is kind of sickening at a time like this.
And especially after I just finished Fast and Furious, where the the bigs at DOJ and Homeland Security on down were OK with border patrol agents like the now slain Brian Terry being sent out with bean bags in their initial round to face all that intentionally walked over the border firepower from the druglords. Demoralized: Government's answer to "Fast and Furious" records requests: Blank pages
Was Terry taken down with the aid of stone cold killers in our government's pay, under an Obama administration that is now covering it up?
Farmers and ranchers defrauded and without answers on MF Global will probably have to wait until after the election.
Americans have hunkered down.
