What the US Government does behind closed doors is a mystery to most Americans, Water Gate era laws ( FOIA, Privacy Act of 1974 and Government in the Sunshine Act) were supposed to make it easier for citizens to find information about what kinds of records the government keeps and how it operates, but as this piece shows every administration finds ways to maintain the cloak of secrecy.

It is simply mind boggling that there are people in this country that think centralized government regulation is the answer to all of our problems. A recent article in Wired Magazine "Flying Blind, The Tech-Unfriendly Skies" talked about the FAA's efforts to modernize air traffic control, a process that began in 2002 and won't be complete until the summer of 2015 and which is 500 million dollars over budget. The author Sara Breselor blamed government rules and standards which require new technology to comply with outdated and often irrelevant regulations and stated that these same issues were at the core of the HealthCare.gov and VA fiascos. It is painfully obvious that some people do not learn from past mistakes, now the FCC wants to get its hands on the internet, one of the few things in this country that works without the help of government regulation.

First the Washington Post went after Scott Walker for not finishing college, implying that he dropped out for suspicious reasons, now the New York Times is "correcting" a story claiming that he was responsible for the lay-off of an outstanding teacher, the only problem with the story was that she got laid-off before he took office. The leftist media have no shame and in my mind no credibility.
