Monday, June 19

Big Baby Wussies in DC

Our government thinks too darn highly of itself. "Continuity of government" exercises be damned.

On Monday, June 19, about 4,000 government workers representing more than 50 federal agencies from the State Department to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission will say goodbye to their families and set off for dozens of classified emergency facilities stretching from the Maryland and Virginia suburbs to the foothills of the Alleghenies. They will take to the bunkers in an "evacuation" that my sources describe as the largest "continuity of government" exercise ever conducted, a drill intended to prepare the U.S. government for an event even more catastrophic than the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
Guess they don't have much confidence in their diplomatic and/or warring skills, eh?

If our country was attacked again, why on earth would we want our present government to stay in their jobs? It's not like you or I had anything to do with the bad blood between the neocons and the oil nations. Would anyone miss the neocons? Doubtful.

And what an utter waste of time it is to pretend that the government would be capable of governing anything in a time of crisis. What good were they when New Orleans needed help? and New York?
