Age of Low Expectations
Is the state of low expectations here to stay? We don't seem to expect much from our elected officials any more. When President Obama was elected President in 2008, without doing one single thing, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. It went down hill from there ever since.

What Do We Want?
Is it too much to ask for a government that works? Just like any other business, it needs to perform a service. That service needs to be performed with some professionalism, efficiency and within budget.
The federal government is a bureaucracy. It is divided into a host of alphabet agencies that has specific functions. Yet, it seems at times that one does not know what their mandate is.
Who is in charge? and where is the oversight?
Where is the accountability, especially when things go wrong?
Is this our Best and Brightest?
- John McCain
- Nancy Pelosi
- Chuck Schumer
- Lindsey Graham
- Bernie Sanders
Is This the Best We Can Do?
The Veteran Administration is a prime example.
Some Government Failures...
The answer is if you don't have high expectations, you won't be disappointed. However, it would be nice if our government agencies work more like businesses that make a profit. Their motivation will be different and perhaps will lead to better results.
