Your government at work

A couple of tidbits.

OPM data breach could total 32 million Americans
Office of Personnel Management Director Katherine Archuleta said her investigation isn’t complete so she can’t say whether all 32 million current and former federal employees were affected by the breach, which happened in 2014 but wasn’t discovered until this year.

“I will not give a number,” Ms. Archuleta retorted.

Can’t, or won’t? That’s potentially 10% of the entire — born/naturalized citizen, resident alien, and “undocumented” alien; man, woman, other, cis-miscellaneous, child — population of the entirely country. And she won’t limit herself to even that number.

Aren’t you glad the gov makes you get REAL ID, register firearms purchases, and otherwise databases you?

Don’t worry, though. It isn’t as though… wait…

Oh. All that data is out in the wild.

And in the those-who-will-not-learn-from-the-past [Prohibition] department:

Kids Create Salt Black Markets in Cafeterias Due to Michelle Obama’s Lunch Rules
“Perhaps the most colorful example in my district is that students have been caught bringing–and even selling–salt, pepper, and sugar in school to add taste to perceived bland and tasteless cafeteria food,” said John S. Payne, the president of Blackford County School Board of Trustees in Hartford City, Indiana.

Ah! Good little black marketeering entrepreneurs. There’s hope for America yet.

See? Government can create jobs.

    “Perceived” lack of taste? Of course it lacks flavor. Somehow, the cretins in charge didn’t get the memo about all the people in history who went to great lengths, expense, and even risked their lives for salt, pepper and sugar…

    But, of course the real problem is that these children are subject to the whims of these cretins to start with. The cure is to remove them from government schools.

    Apparently it’s a local thing, but salt shakers vanished from most of my local restaurants years ago. Pepper, yes. The little packs of artificial sweetener, yes. (sugar went away decades ago) Salt… you have to attract a waiter, tell them you want salt, and they’ll resentfully shuffle back to the kitchen and emerge ten minutes later with two or three of those little paper packets that hold half a pinch of salt. So you have to send them back for another dozen or so…
