. . . what else can't they do?
Think about it.
It seems to me the oil spill reveals one thing above all else--the incompetence of the federal government.
And before I get complaining comments--yes, I know the spill was the result of the work of a private company. I'm definitely not saying private corporations are the answer to all our society's ills. But let's be clear: it isn't as if the choice between private businesses and the federal government is the choice between good and evil, between competence and incompetence.
All I'm saying is this: the next time you think about trusting the fed to solve your problems just remember this: with all their resources, the federal government couldn't plug a hole.
