Another Reason not to trust government with healthcare

The Army Corps of Engineers have a way of doing some incredibly incompetent things. The states that have the Missouri River running through is well aware of how the Corps release so much water downriver-especially when there is no barge traffic on the Mississippi river (the stated reason they release so much water from the dams Sakakawea and Oahe.) A monument that was covered since 1954 was visible for the first time this Summer on Lake Sakakawea. It's an annual ordeal for our state to extend the boat ramp into the lake.

This is irksome enough, but when you see a state having to conserve water and even that isn't going to be enough because the Corps is 'obeying' the law to save some purple mussel over the lives of Americans one has got to wonder where the priorities are in this nation Human life must trump animal life. IF Darwin is to be believed then the mussels must either die or adapt.

IF our government is going to put, an endangered animal above the lives of our fellow citizens it is time to rethink trusting them for our security, end social security-because they can't be trusted with our money, and we should NEVER allow the government to run our health care.
But what do I know, I'm just a hick that has seen how poorly it has done running the Reservation system and the Veteran's Administration.
