It’s no secret that I have very little faith in the competence and good will of government.
I focus primarily on the fecklessness of Washington, but I also can’t resist highlighting malfeasance and stupidity by local governments, state governments, and foreign governments.
Indeed, I’ve even had to create special categories to keep track of some of the more amazing episodes of bureaucratic blundering. Here are just a few that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief.
A bunch of supposed victories in the Drug War.
A comparison of government stupidity in the United States and United Kingdom.
A list of new “rights” concocted by governments.
A pick-the-dumbest-regulation poll.
And even a strange collection of stories about anti-Bambi persecution by bureaucrats.
Today, we’re going to add to this collection. But I’m not sure how to categorize this story. Is is a great moment in local law enforcement, like when cops bust little girls with lemonade stands, or they arrest young men for the horrible crime of saving people from drowning?
