RESHUFFLING FAILURE | 2002-06-08

The problem with our borders is that George Bush wants open borders.

The problem with the FBI and CIA is that a bunch of failures without any moral courage never lose anything when they fail - AGAIN. They are all getting promoted.

So no one is going to do anything about the real problems. So what ARE they going to do in Washington?

They are going to do what they always do in Washington when the will is not there to change policy. They are going to create a new governmental department.

The problem with education since the 1950s has been education policy. Education scores kept dropping and no one wanted to take on the National Education Association.

So the Carter Administration created a new Department of Education. Have you noticed how education has improved since the Department of Education was created?

Me neither.

Creating new departments to deal with failure is an admission of defeat. That is all that the creation of Bush's new Department of Homeland Defense means.
