The Definition of Stupidity

We have all heard that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different result (which, of course, cannot happen).

I want to modify it a bit, and define stupidity as being focused on a dream that cannot work, but trying any number of new initiatives to further the dream, irrespective of a rate of 100% failure. In this case, government, specifically the Obama administration is the working definition of stupid. I am sure that you all remember Solyndra, Lightsquared, and the other failed companies. Well, another one just bit the dust, despite a $400 M loan guarantee (that we thankfully will not lose all of). Read the story here.

To make matters even worse, the administration is continuing its’ relentless push into “bio-fuel” for the US Navy at an budget of $510 M for this year. Despite the fact that this alleged leap forward costs $26 per gallon (vs diesel at $3.60 per gallon). Yes, you read that right – it was not a typo. Read the story here.

November is coming. We absolutely have to erase the mistake, and remove the combination of insanity and stupidity from Washington. (OK, I give. The stupidity extends way to far to remove in a single election, but let us start.)
