If you're playing basketball and the guy elbows you under the net, it's an accident. The first time. After that, you've got to figure he's doing it on purpose. That's how life is. Once is a fluke, twice is a pattern. When somebody does something over and over, it's pretty hard to believe that it's not on purpose. It's pretty hard to believe that he's not gunning for you.

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.

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?
