Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them.
At some point I have a wonderful story of how truly incompetent the US government actually is, but I have to wait until the problem is fixed before explaining.
For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.
