Well, even LitesOut had contempt for China, which surprised me.

I may have less contempt than "it".

So the government doesn't accomplish its task to promote the general Welfare, and when one branch tries to establish why that occurred, they're petty and hateful?

Not all threats drive tanks, and there used to be a biodefense office in the NSC. That's great, it keeps every state, town and hospital from having to prepare on its own for every possible pandemic. Sadly, that office was created by guy who was from Kenya, so it had to go. Looking into things like that doesn't strike me as petty.

It happens whichever party's in charge, and both parties have to own the underfunding that left the national stockpile less than fully stocked. None of this happened overnight, and most of it didn't originate in the Oval Office. Dragging it out into the light is a good thing.

Funny how that works. It seems like the only time the Democrats worry about the general welfare and establish accountability is during a Republican administration.

Funny also that the only times Republicans care about spending is during Democratic administration. Can you imagine the libertarian outcry if Dems spent 2 trillion on anything?

I'm good with no stimulus or bail outs. To quote star wars "let it die".
The only thing they agree on is spending more money. Democrats spend it like a drunk sailor and Republicans spend like it's about to go out of style.

It's not just government spending and bailouts, it's also the Fed's ever decreasing interest rates and QE (aka free money). Capitalism is an illusion when the too-big-to-fail (investment grade credit) and people with access to Congress get to eat from the free money pie first.
