I haven't been posting much, so I'm going to try to get back in the groove with more sweeping, weird generalizations.
Government should have two branches, the department of bread and the department of circuses. "Bread" would include Health and Human Services, Interior, Treasury, etc. "Circuses" would include the Pentagon, the FCC, NASA, and Congress.
All this fits with my theory that the invasion of Grenada was the best of all possible wars.
