Which U.S. Bureaucracy Pisses You Off Most?

This should really be self-explanatory. It is your job to pick which one of these many US bureaucracies you could live without. Be it slow response time, constant hassles, or Vietnam, take your pick...


We are now approaching on destination poll.
Please return your seatbacks and tray tables to their upright and locked positions.

Amazing, 60% of the replies are from people who they don't apply to!!

Definatly Judicial branch.

The executive branch is controlled by an elected officer, which rather precludes it from being considered a bureaucracy, much to my dismay.

But you're Canadian, so really, it's something I wouldn't expect you to understand, socialists ;)

EDIT: Many judges are also elected officials... This brings us back to my first point explaining why we cannot elect them.

Yes, 60% (or whatever) of the people in this thread shouldn't be here, but the other people who are responding seem equally clueless ;)

I had to go IRS. I don't like the DEA, and I really wanted to vote there, but the IRS is frickin' sinister. They can screw you up hardcore. Since I am not a Mexican working on the border by Texas, the DEA can only bust me on federal distributing charges. But then I get a cool tattoo, and jail name, and start a cartel from my cell or something.

This poll needs more votes. Everyone should share their ire with US bureaucracy in this thread. And then the wussy furriners can whine about America, because they're jealous of our superiour bureaucracy.

AMERICA IS #1 BABY!

No fighting it, we're #1.

I generally like what the US has done recently. Except for two things President Bush has done:
1. Spent too much time in Iraq. Going in was good, taking our time is bad.
2. Department of Homeland Security. I don't beleive that the airlines and airports should be in government hands. They should be privately owned and operated, and only need to be kept up to standards voted on by the public.

My girlfriend's stepmom was telling me this story of when she was getting someone at the airport. She decided to go to through security. In front of her in the ridiculously long line were a group of presumably Middle Eastern foreigners, who spoke no English. They were stripped to their underwear, forced to stand in the middle of an open airport, and not attended to for about ten minutes. They were "inspected," found to be 100% safe, reclothed, and got through security. I do understand that they do not speak English, but why not show by example with another guard of what is going to happen?

Imagine being my girlfriend's stepmom standing in line, next in a few minutes, wondering if she'd have to do that. Slightly embarassing, I think so. If the government forced me to do this, I simply wouldn't fly, try to press charges against the government (or at least get some fo the power out of that department), and encourage for the airline companies to do something about it.

I do recognize that no attacks or explosions have occured because of a passenger since 9/11. The closest I can recall anyone getting was the show bomber on a flight from England, which was stopped before it could happen. Maybe this is proof that everything is working. Or maybe it's proof that no one has tried since then.

Also, they cause the nation to rely far too much on a simple meter. When it goes up, everything gets tighter everywhere. In my opinion, it causes fear in our people, something that we are supposed to be fighting, not helping. If I were a member of a terrorist group, I'd make empty threats weekly and attack once, twice a year. Just enough to make the nation beleive that I'm not joking everytime.

Everytime I go into an airport, I am in total fear. I fear that I had something in my pockets from the night before that I forgot to take out, such as a pair of nail clippers. I fear that a small mistake like this could get me arrested. It's fear like this that gets terrorist's jobs complete.

FCC. If parents don't want their kids watching certain things on the TV, don't let them. The same applies to the radio.

Yes, I too voted for IRS despite US having low tax rates when compared to other industrialized countries.

I might have something to say about how the post office delivered an important package two months late, however I probably am most irked about Homeland security, something that sounds like the most pointless restructuring and waste of money. Do they really expect that to stop terrorist attacks?

I picked homeland security. While it's important that we prevent attacks against the US from happening, we can't lock up everyone who looks like they might be thinking about finding out something about how to find the right people to get them a fake passport or something. If we're going to keep people in places like Guantanamo Bay, we gotta charge them and try them.
