One of the dangers of bureaucracy is how easily some pet presidential scheme gets turned into a federally-funded entity and then grows over the years into a useless, but expensive, tapeworm on the public treasury. Stacy McCain draws our attention to a report by Colorado Watchdog on the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and its exorbitantly remunerated employees (plus a crass “faculty member” who seems to spend an inordinate amount of her “work day” tweeting about renewable energy topics like sex and flatulence).
In the future, everyone will have a government job, but no one will actually do any work. So long, America! It was nice while it lasted.
