Muh, gubmint will save me!

One of the saddest things about the Coronavirus is that it’s really a picture of complete and utter failure by government agencies who have grown too large and lost site of their defined mission.

Oops…

“Just two weeks after he’d tweeted that there was “no confirmed person-to-person spread” of the new coronavirus emerging from China, Centers for Disease Control Director Robert Redfield submitted to Congress a 512-page budget request asking for more than $7 billion in taxpayer money.”

Virus you say?

Meh… We’ve got research on gun crimes to do and people are dying from vaping out there! 🤦‍♂️
