That the Earl of Georgia supports slavery is disappointing, but not surprising. After all, slavery is not about labor, but about the deprivation of liberty and control freaks are typically opposed to people just wandering around.
For candidates for local, state and federal office.
The disingenuous Earl Carter has been on Capitol Hill three years and still doesn’t know that the reason industrial waste sites, including those left behind by the U.S. military, are not getting cleaned up is because Congress has refused to allocate the dollars and we no longer employ slaves to do the dirty work.
It is hard for the reality-based community to understand people who exist in their own imaginings. To be out of touch isn’t just to exist in an ineffable present; it is to be unaware of tangible reality. Think of them as moving toy soldiers through a military engagement that is all fantasy. On Capitol Hill they are moving piles of money around budgets in much the same way.
All their maneuvering is totally disconnected from the real world. So, expecting Congress to be aware of real life consequences is an exercise in futility.
How did we end up with a bunch of game boys? We allowed ourselves to be impressed by the fact that they speak English. And, unlike a talking parrot, they look just like us.
WHY DO OUR PUBLIC SERVANTS KEEP GETTING AWAY WITH LYING TO US? BECAUSE HONORABLE PEOPLE JUST CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THOSE WHOM THEY TRUSTED WILL DECEIVE.
BESIDES, WHEN PEOPLE ARE LOOKING TO GET HIRED, THEY ARE EXPECTING, NOT KNOWING. AFTER SEVERAL YEARS ON THE JOB, THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR MISLEADING. WHAT GEORGIA SENATOR DAVID PERDUE IS SPOUTING IS BEYOND THE PALE.
That’s what the vultures on Capitol Hill up to. Getting their psychic gratification while the getting is good. The House GOP lost nine seats in 2016. So, it’s getting to be desperation time.
Also, there are now twenty one women in the Senate. Of course, meanness is not restricted by gender, neither is revenge. Time will tell.
“Buyer beware” used to be the cover for merchants cheating their customers, implying that they should have known to expect a bait and switch. Nowadays, that same strategy seems to have entered the repertoire of politicians. They bait the voters and then switch their allegiance to their cronies.
