So who is the most incompetent, governments or private enterprise? It's a tough call, Bruce, with some shining examples of unutterable blockheadedness in both camps. Business may be a little more efficient, but that's offset by government being less corrupt.

When all is said and done, though, I'm going to go with the side whose incomes and savings depend on getting it right, rather than the side whose response to running out of money is to print some more. If the current Federal Government was a business they would have gone bankrupt months ago.
