Hungry?


Apparently, our soldiers in Iraq are...hungry. We can't even feed them.

Outsourcing, too often, is just another way to let someone else - who has to answer to no one - do a shabby job. It's a way to vaporize - in fact, to arbitrage - responsibility, regulation, and accountability.

It's a way to step backwards; by creating efficiency through undoing protections that have evolved over hundreds of years. And, interestingly, these protections are there as much for consumers as for businesses - it's just that most businesses seem to have forgotten about that.

Ah, the joys of having a CEO preznit.
