What Was It Thoreau Said?

     Oh, yes: "If I knew for a certainty that a man was coming to my house with the conscious design of doing me good, I should run for my life."

     In other words:
     However, my boundless faith in the inefficiency, ineptitude and occasional malfeasance* of the Federal Government does leave some room for hope.
* Or, at least, misfeasance.  A lot of the bureaugentsia couldn't work up a really good mal even if it was their only ticket out of perdition.

The Obamacare screw should have totally been a Robertson.

(although I've said it before and I'll say it again: having been permanently crippled by the Canadian health care system, I remain amazed that we ended up with something worse).

I dunno. I was thinking more along these lines.

It should, of course, have Left-handed threads.

Until I learn differently, you are the coiner of that word.

I wish I had as much room for hope as you, but I am afraid Obamacare is like Andromeda, only Wildfire's self destruct device went ahead and detonated.

The Obamadestrain, sort of like.
