Tool Time

Troublesome Times takes exception of part of the President’s State of The Union Speech last night.  It seems after re-instituting the Patriot Act, signing the NDAA (reluctantly, he said), ignoring abuses by his Attorney General, the TSA and Homeland Security, he made this statement late in the speech (after everyone had fallen asleep – thanks, Matt!):
“The executive branch also needs to change. Too often, it’s inefficient, outdated and remote. That’s why I’ve asked this Congress to grant me the authority to consolidate the federal bureaucracy so that our Government is leaner, quicker, and more responsive to the needs of the American people.” (emphasis Guffaw)
More Power?  Doesn’t this sound like Tim Taylor on Tool Time?
And we all remember what happened when Ol’ Tim sooped up some appliance?

 Just a suggestion – If the Congress, or the President (any President), moves to increase the power of the federal government:

  3. Because the sure cure for an abuse of government power is to grant them more power…what could possibly go wrong?
