In Passing

No, we don’t.

Be Careful What You Wish For  Dept
Glenn Reynolds:
...Ignorance and incompetence are on regular display among our political class.  Its members are good at what they do — but what they do, really, is raise money and win elections.  There’s no particular correlation between those skills and any other kind of competence.  In fact, given their record of passing increasingly dumb laws, if there’s any correlation at all, it’s a negative one.
So let me get this straight:  Our problem is that we have an ineffective government run by idiots, and the fix is an effective government run by ‘‘smart’’ people?

Um... I don’t think so.

Think about the kinds of people who are attracted to the levers of power.
Then think about the horror that a truly ‘‘effective’’ government might be.

‘‘...The number-one job facing the middle class... happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.’’ - Joe Biden

We can mock the bubble the... millennials inhabit, but the problem is serious.  Their generation is now controlling the direction of this country. - Stanley Kurtz
