RE: Ineptocracy

Once again, Mr. Johnson, you have hit the nail on the head. That is a beautiful description of our Federal, State, Borough and City Government. I may not have that much knowledge of the State or City Government, but I was impacted by the Borough and I spent 6 1/2 years in Washington, D.C. observing the Federal animal in action.

In the 70's there was a widespread description of the "Peter Principle" as in any Bureaucracy you can advance in the hierarchy until you reach your level of incompetency,or more commonly "Cream Rises Until It Sours".

I believe that your description neatly updates the Peter Principle. Well Done!
