I knew you were legit when you said that the only reason the government really runs is the few competent people who are really talented do most of the real work. Anyone who has ever worked for any part of the government knows this ( i saw it in the millitary and have seen even worse in the civillian part of the government) the level of beaurocratic lethargy, career incompetence, personal feifdoms, and thinking that make a reasonable person scratch there head make it a wonder that anything gets done at all. I figure the biggest conspiracies are CYA, graft,and kickback stuff that goes on.
