#1 There must be some axiom that says as bureaucracies grow without restriction, idiocy also grows without restriction. Maybe bureaucracies follow the 2nd law of thermo; systems tend towards more and more chaos, disorder, and randomness. The 2nd law says the process is also reversible.

#2 And remember - our government is (so far) run by the people. So who are the idiots?

#4 There is a common belief that the US has had, in general, above average presidents. That's exactly wrong. Most of them were bad to awful (with a handful of extraordinary exceptions). What makes America great is not its presidents, it is our Constitution, our institutions and our people.

#7 Our better presidents tend to be the ones who know their limitations - a most rare attribute among politicians.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
