With one more day in the year I thought it would be fun if we all recount the stupidest thing our respective governments have done this year.

I'll start us off with the good old 242, The Bahamas.

So, voter registration is down and election time is only a few months away. The Parliamentary Registration Department has been moaning about how people need to come and register to vote. So what do they do? Turn away women who are showing too much cleavage.

http://www.tribune242.com/news/2016/dec/30/cover-breasts-register-vote/?news

Our antiquated registration system aside, what kind of photographs are they taking for voters cards? I personally don't wear tops that expose my cleavage because I don't have any cleavage (and now for my next trick, watch as I put on this vest and make my breasts disappear) but why in the name of all that is beautiful would a voter's card photo need to show anything below shoulder level?

Some of my male co-workers said everyone (male and female) should go register with no pants on because obviously these people have nothing more important to worry about.

Well we verbally agreed to a gentleman's agreement with Iran over our spies, sanctions, and their nuclear program. Gave them 1.2 billion and they gave us their word. Not even a signed document just their word...

I know that's why we voted for Trump instead of that tyrant.

My government believes it's more important to focus on the possibility of a foreign government having the capability to hack into and expose their e-mails rather than the content of those e-mails themselves.

*Spends the whole year being criticized for not being decisive enough.

*Is decisive and is criticized for not being thoughtful enough.

Gotta love the endless well of bias.

Yep. Sure does. Just like every super power would react in the U.N.
