What is amazing to me is that there are independent organizations that are quite able to create and implement protocols to manage/ensure financial
standards. Accountants have developed accounting principals and essentially self enforce those. Internal auditors, same thing. Now the
government is very willing to articulate in law the practice of these principals, yet are obviated from practicing them themselves.
Not in my life has any president even suggested that the government follow the same standards required of public companies. The government has
implemented signifcant administrative bodies to enforce these standards, hence the human infrastructure is in place. The SEC, NASD, IRS, state
banking regulators, EPA, EEOC and the list goes on regarding what the government is able to do to ensure compliance with what they consider "best
Why is it that the government is very able to ensure that every single government agency is in compliance with EEOC standards, getting lists broken
down by demographics, publishing which kind of person is in which box, which groups are being promoted, why certain groups are not being promoted, how
racially fair tests are - you name it, yet they are exempt from basic accounting practices? Does it take someone like Waxman to call these jokers to
task? Why are they not policing themselves and making public examples of gross incompetence? Why are these matters typically covered under the
cloak of classified information?
There is one reason and that is that the government at all levels is an organization which has been purposefully designed to enable corruption.
There is no other reason for the on-going mismanagement. These folks in the audit/financial arms of organizations like the Pentagon are top notch
folks. Highly educated, motivated, competent. Why can't they effectively do their jobs? Because of the incomprehensible matrix of organizational
responsibilities that make it impossible to effectively manage their affairs. Any competent executive, coming into a situation like this would
immediately move to blow it up and put it back together and implement the right controls. Why don't they do that? Only one reason and is because
they don't want to. Doing that would eliminate the opportunities to spiff contributors, friends, etc and a government without the ability to
facility to engage in corrpution is untenable.
