I'm trying to decide which is worse; Having Barney Frank in charge of our finances or making him a Boy Scout troop leader?
That's because the results would be the same.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
C S Lewis

Train the dog, the ribbons will take care of themselves.
