Hahaha. Never heard this story before and how clever and true it is. We definitely need some change with the people who run our communities and country. Always looking for shortcuts to screw the rest of us.
I agree. No matter who you are, too much power eventually goes to your head. I think that politicians' salary should be voted on by the tax payers, not the people benefiting from the pay raise. That's a funny quote byt the way, the one about diapers and politicians.
I do love the way you have presented this situation and it does supply me a lot of fodder for consideration. Nonetheless, from everything that I have personally seen, I only hope as the actual comments pack on that people continue to be on point and in no way start upon a soap box involving the news of the day. Yet, thank you for this exceptional piece and though I do not agree with it in totality, I value your standpoint.
