Govt Funnies

Academia, Government, and Malinvestment

In the real world, preschools and day care centers are plenteous. The market is one of near-perfect competition, where rates are competitive, competitors are always coming and going, and there isn’t a lot of quality variance: most preschools fundamentally suck, and the “better” ones are often lesser evils. Preschool workers–as a group–do not make a […]

Boehner, Ryan, Obama, and The Never-Ending Fiscal Cliff Charade

Conservatives had better wake up, smell the napalm, and identify the real enemy to their lives and livelihoods. It isn’t President Obama. Sure, he is no hero to the Constitution. Sure, he cares not about personal liberties or free markets. Sure, he opposes gun rights, supports abortion (even at taxpayer expense) and gay “marriage”. But […]

The National Weather Service: Run By the Weather Underground

How else can you rationalize the purchase of 16,000 rounds of .40S&W hollowpoint ammunition by THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE??? They don’t have the money to train storm spotters–they’ve actually scaled back the training–but they have money to buy ammunition.

Wisconsin Recall Election

Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) will face a recall election tomorrow. What is driving the election: public-sector labor unions. Walker–during his campaign–promised to curb the powers of public sector unions in order to bring the state budget into balance. He has kept his promise: like Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), he has taken on the teacher unions […]

It’s Not That Bad

Actually, this scandal is far worse than advertised. (1) The Secret Service–as well as any of the military Special Operations groups involved–is hardly a group of chaste altar boys. Like any other government entity, these entities attract all types. For every Secret Service agent who could be Tim Tebow with an MP-5, there are at […]

Don’t Read This After Dinner

Poor Gunnery Sergeant R. Lee Ermey…he’s got to be having a stroke right about now.

Equality

HT to Vox Day for this one.

Why to Abolish the TSA

This is funny.

The TSA Gets Feministed

Irrespective of what you think of feminists, this incident shows you what kind of nutjobs are working at the TSA. What Jill wishes to do in her own private life is her own business, and–given that she was willing to air details that most would wish to keep private–I’ll give her credit where credit is […]

How Government Policy is Made

During my days at EDS–working on the plant floor in various GM facilities–a UAW worker gave me this. It aptly described how GM made policy, and–as we are seeing now–aptly describes how government policy is made: In the Beginning was The Plan And then came the Assumptions And the Assumptions were without form And the […]
