Increasing costs and inconvenience to thousands, to satisfy a possible correction for one seems to no longer be confined to today's political bureaucracy - though it is far more prevalent there.

I hate auto-anything on my computer!! The above should be "easy-peesie" not "easy-Presidents" (tho that's a chuckle)

The State and Feds get some back (for other uses), administrators and the more useless bureaucracy get theirs, and the Unions get a sizeable chunk. See? Easy-Presidents. Cut the overhead and let teachers teach, janitors maintain, and clerks clerk, and we could cut costs 2/3 - and likely pay better. The bureaucracy/Administration know this, which is why they hold teachers "hostage" at budget time (as they do with any public service from police to garbage to water dept.). If it wasn't for them making teachers do THEIR job too (data collection, et all, such as required today by Common Core), teachers might actually be able to teach. As for Unions, we should remember that public unions were, and still are, a bad idea - and outlaw them.

You left out failing, lying, and self-preservation, which round out the top five.

The more I hear out of this Administration, the more tempted I am to run for President myself. Unfortunately, that would - to me, anyway - ruin my life as I know and want it. Still, I'm certain ANY "conservative" would improve our lot over what we have today.
Just imagine if the CDC focused on disease - real ones - rather than made-up items such as gun control, helmet laws, vehicle safety, school lunches, and myriad other social engineering scams. My bet is they would be no better prepared. This is government, where the hierarchy and bureaucracy have gotten to the point where self-preservation is paramount. They will blame everything but them selves to preserve their lucrative and powerful position.
If I wasn't' t already in favor of Tillis this absolutely inane - and irresponsible comment from Hagan might alone have tipped the scale. She protects government from the People rather that protect the People she is beholden to. NC can readily do better.
Hmmm... Maybe the CDC SHOULD focus their efforts on helmet laws, gun control, school lunches, and social engineering -as they have been. It is looking like they are hopelessly incapable of dealing with actual disease. Any bureaucratic functionary will give the wrong answer and blame the requester - or anyone and anything else. In fact, the vast bulk of regulation, rules, and non-criminal "law" is created to make someone's JOB easier.

Where Are the Angry White Folks?

"Angry white folks" TRY to act, and be, civilized - at least until there is no other choice. The same will be found with more civil angry black folks. Immediate violence is almost a hallmark of the less-civilized (rather immature), who simply lash out when hurt or afraid. When the "civilized" (and there will be black and white) are forced to revert however, they will be more brutal and implacable. Much better not to go there.
Wanna get the 47 pct.and illegal aliens to pay their own way? Get rid of income and all other taxes and check out FairTax.org. It may seem rough, but taxes will no longer be hidden, no longer borne solely by half the workforce, and easier to control by the People. Most of us pay much more than the amount shown as "proper". I know I pay nearly 40pct. of my income to taxes (that I have found, to date) and you probably do, too.
