Monday's HOT MIC
For those in need of a Monday evening laugh:
I can guarantee you that none of the seventeen remaining conservatives in Hawaii lost any faith whatsoever, because they never had any.
This has long been one of the biggest of the many disconnects on the liberal/progressive side of the aisle. Examples of government incompetence abound. "Bureaucratic competence" is an oxymoron's oxymoron. Yet the lefties are wrapped up in the idea that the government is a force for good and there to take care of us from cradle to grave.
I have written about this before, but it's a story that is worth repeating. During the "debate" leading up to the passage of Obamacare, I was interviewed by a progressive author. She asked me why I thought that the government shouldn't provide health care. I replied, "Even if I did, I don't think the government can provide health care." I then went into my patented diatribe about the inherent inefficiency of bureaucracy and she actually agreed with some of it.
But she was still a progressive when she left.
