The inefficient cannot create efficiency.

The regulators cannot regulate their own efficiency, yet they insist on regulating ours.
They waste by the truckload and while hectoring us ceaselessly about waste. They erect government buildings where the lights burn all night, yet begrudge us an extra kilowatt on the side. They cannot live within their means, yet they insist that we live within theirs. That we not only pay their bills, but that we make do with less for ourselves. -- by Daniel Greenfield
