This is the same bureaucracy that brought us Cash for Clunkers, which removed millions of perfectly good cars off used market, destroyed the wealth of their owners and put people into debt.
The same bureaucracy that ran guns into the hands of Mexican drug gangs, incidentally used to kill US Law Enforcement personnel, ultimately to be used in gutting the 2nd Amendment.
The same bureaucracy that allowed Monsanto to corner the seed market with GMO crops and under penalty of law disallow farmers to keep any of their harvest for seed.
The same bureaucracy that sends SWAT teams out to intimidate Amish farmers, Guitar manufacturers, Raw Food Stores, and little girls selling lemonade.
