#1 I think the Egyptian government has decided to save the American taxpayers over $1B a year.

#2 SH, if adults were in charge, I would agree, but we have the Architect of the US Apology and Bow tour in charge. I fear that the $1B will be increased in order to show our sincere apology for this affront to their dignity. ( or some such drivel)

No. They've decided that it should be two billion a year---wanna bet they'll get it too?

#5 I have the impression that much of the bureaucracy is running about unsuperpervised, making decisions beyond the control of the generals. And quite possibly the generals are willing to let this happen so that the peepul will turn to them to be rescued from the anarchy, not to mention the assaults on women by unrestrained gangs of unemployed young men.

#6 Dear T. Wife,

When you said

much of the bureaucracy is running about unsuperpervised ....to let this happen so that the peepul will turn to them to be rescued

Did you mean there or here?

Just change out generals with Democrats and it works fine.

#7 Do nothing. Let them go to trial. Cut off funding while we wait.

And tell LaHood his kid ain't nothing special.

Dear AlanC,

I meant there. Here the bureaucracy is closely supervised by all those czars and recess appointments to produce the effects desired by those in charge of running things. That a great many are in full agreement with both goals and tactics is a side issue, or so it seems to me.

#11 Agreed up to a point, but, the Czars and RAs are in fact bureaucrats themselves. The chaos and harm they inflict will need some "strong leader" to control, no?

Of course said "strong leader" does desire the exact same things as the bureaucrats as long as he gets more power.

#13 but, the Czars and RAs are in fact bureaucrats themselves.

I believe bureaucrats are the salaried professionals who stay on the job regardless who was elected. The Czars and RAs were hired directly by the president to act as senior department managers. They serve at his pleasure and will leave when he does.
