Like the federal government. At this stage, it's pretty hard to believe that its incompetence isn't on purpose. It's pretty hard to avoid the conclusion that somebody has decided to put the ship on the rocks.
I was taught that one time can be passed off as an accident.
And two times can be passed off as a coincidence.
But three times is enemy action.
That’s gold, Baby!
I have always liked the expression:
if you were really trying to ruin the country on purpose, what would you do differently than what they are already doing?
