This Week in Government Failure | Cato @ Liberty

This is a very good series of articles from the Cato Institute.  Go to the referred site  (blue) to fully understand just how bad it is.  Of course you need a strong stomach and those of you with high blood pressure  should probably refrain.

I just started posting these so you may want to check out the previous  articles listed at the bottom of the page.  BB

This Week in Government Failure

Posted by Tad DeHaven

Over at Downsizing Government, we focused on the following issues this week:

  • The U.S. Postal Service’s “automation refugees.”
  • Earmarks: Just because the federal bureaucracy does an abysmal job of spending taxpayer money, it doesn’t mean lawmakers would do any better.
  • Ground hasn’t been broken for California’s high-speed rail system, but it’s already a boondoggle.
  • Hop aboard the Liberty Bus!
  • Al Capone would have loved Medicare.

An Idea for the Tea Party Movement:

On Oct 16th of 2010 me and my family will have a quiet picnic next to the Washington monument, it will be our way to silently protest what our government has done for many years, from both sides of the aisle.

1. No signs to be labelled against
2. No comment to the media to be ridiculed
3. No rallying cries to be criticized
4. No speechs to be dissected

If you would like to join me on this day of silent protest and believe other US Americans feel the same way then pass this along by posting it wherever you can, facebook, myspace, twitter, forums, the local newspaper, wherever you know people will see it.

just our presence on a this day is all we needed.

1. Anyone who speaks to the media does not represent us
2. Anyone carrying a sign does not represent us
3. Anyone making a speech does not represent us
4. Anyone with a rallying cry does not represent us.

The lesson here is simple if my cries cannot be heard and fall upon deaf ears, then perhaps you will understand my mere presence in silence.

Fulcrum,I believe there will be many Americans who will want to protest in your quiet way. I will pass your message on to those I know who may want to join you. Sincerely, Brenda Bowers
