Once they get their greasy fat hands on something lucrative, our government representatives will never ever give it up. The income tax being a prime example of this. The Patriot act being another. And President Bush should have been aware of this. It is not missed that good old George W. managed to spend the coffers nearly dry before the kid, Barrack Obama showed up to find nothing to work with in the kitchen.
This kind of un-American maneuvering has become the way to behave. Its not even considered a bad thing by the boys and girls playing the game to completely ignore the needs of the country as a whole because it you lie cheat and steal on your and your constituencies behalf the rest of the country will somehow find a way to survive and so every things just fine. Stop worrying.
The only trouble is, this kind of base behavior is eroding that basic American nobility that has stood us in good shrift lo these many years. The end crises is near. We must stay close to our hayhooks shovels and axes once again. It isn’t going to be pretty
