Ways Government Can Suck

Please get it, non-libertarian people.

The reason we libertarians don't want uninhibited government is that we fear unshackled power. Being a government agent is no immunity to human nature, it just allows the worst aspects to be practiced with impunity. It doesn't matter if it's George Bush or John Kerry or Hillary Clinton.

From Yahoo news (via Radley Balko):

A group of female hurricane survivors were told to show their breasts if they wanted to be rescued, a British holidaymaker has revealed.Ged Scott watched as American rescuers turned their boat around and sped off when the the women refused.

(Second Amendment sidelight: That's the dis-armers talking to the dis-armees, by the way.)

OTOH, the reports of volunteer rescue workers being given sexual harrassment training at FEMA look less looney now.
