    If discussing Congress, he’s going to need DWFNC.

    Bureaucracy doesn’t necessarily mean outdated and inefficient … it … just always seems to turn out that way.

    The School Cheating Scandal here in Atlanta is one way of describing bureaucracy.

    @TrapperJohn

    Just saying that people seem to automatically make that connection.

    Two years ago. Just Google “Atlanta School Cheating Scandal” and you’ll know more.

    I always considered a bureacracy as a system with so many (bleep)ing rules, you gave up trying to apply for, let’s say, a building permit.

    @ John Pike:

    I think the “NC” part is Nuclear Coffee. Someone else’ll have to come up with the explanation for DWF.

    Doc’s World Famous Nuclear Coffee, something that gets Google hits only on GoComics. The joke needs to be retired, badly.

    Bureaucracy is a necessary evil.

    Every so often a cleaning is need, though. Particularly when we started getting laws that were more than 100 pages long. The Federal Depository at the college I earned my masters from was an eye-opener. For most of the U.S. history, laws were short. When you needed to, you could look up a law and actually understand it. The proceedings of Congress were usually very short. Until the 1990s.
    .
    For example, MUSY. Multiple Use Sustained Yield. As a law it was quite short and commonsense. (I miss the 1890s to 1981 era when Republicans were Conservationists and most Democrats weren’t trying to destroy nature through Environmentalism.) A mostly ignored law as swung the Congressional breeze, but it was praiseworthy nonetheless. The idea of using the national forests for a multitude of uses, vs. the cut-it-all-down during Carter and Reagan years, or the burn-it-all-down of today.
    .
    In 1993, the 103rd Congress and President Clinton did the first 45,000 page law. NAFTA. Others followed.
    .
    It was just the first. Such laws are completely untenable as no one can know all of them.
    .
    In effect, bureaucracy took a flying leap in 1993.
