Anytime anybody tests the effectiveness of the TSA, the consistent conclusion is that pretty much anybody can get pretty much anything onboard any airplane they pick.

So, why would anybody be surprised to discover that the much vaunted national test of the Emergency Alert System would result in unmitigated failure?

Not only did the test fail miserably, but the federal bureaucrats cannot yet even assess the scope and scale of the failure. So, in the event of a true national emergency, rest assured -- you’re on your own (always have been, always will be).

Quoting the Senate Homeland Security
and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman:
“The weaknesses exposed by today's test of the emergency alert system are unacceptable.”

So, here we have a federal bureaucracy which -- in its current form -- has been around since 1/1/1997. If traced back through its previous incarnations (via the previous link), the bureaucracy dates back to 1951. In all that time, nobody thought it might be a good idea to test this thing? And, when the pinheads finally do get around to testing it, it fails miserably?

GEEZ! Can anybody tell me why on earth we would want the federal government (or any other level of government) managing our health care system (or any other aspect of our personal lives)?
