Some said this happen by design. There almost shortages on everything. As some said they are not predicting food shortages, they planning food shortages.

I'd be willing to bet this was another "revolving door" issue which of course led to the "opportunity" to "weaponize" another thing against the American people and their newborns.

But of course, it was all "incompetence."

We are all getting tired of that "excuse."

Incompetence is merely the best case scenario for the FDA.

Indifference is the more plausible explanation. Neither they, nor Abbott Nutrition, nor anyone in President Asterisk's useless regime can be bothered to give a damn.

There is stupidity.

There is malice

There is the stupidly malicious.

I do believe in this formula fustercluck we have all three.

I'm old enough to remember the days when "never attribute to malice that which can be explained by incompetence" was the fallback.

I miss those days.

It's the principle of simplicity. Occam's Razor for politics and bureaucrats.

But at a certain point, a prevalence of stupidity becomes its own form of malice.

Remember the late Charles Krauthammer used to always say that. Years ago I said it was overused as an excuse, but now they aren't even trying to argue it.

I miss Charles, I didn't agree with him as much as I probably should have, but yes, I miss him too.

He isn't coming back, and neither are "those days."

Sad, very sad.

Charles Krauthammer was one of two columnists I always made a point of reading, the other being William Safire.

Didn't always agree with their ideas but they always made you think.
