Comrade Alstrymous . . .

     As Sempai knows, I live in California.

     Today's salary outrage of a local California official is simply par for the course. Those of us that actually lift our heads occasionally see reports of government largess, fully larded-and-marbled by politicians and their union supporters, almost daily.

     As long as Fools are fooled by politicians and their union supporters, the death spiral continues unabated.

     Just please consider the number of $100K hacks the government employs to deliver a so-called program. Under "California's Programs for the Unemployed," I count SIXTEEN different specialized programs. From the "Workforce Investment Act Program" to the "Experience Unlimited Program," real money is going to Government union employees that in-turn fully support the re-election of those that pay their salary.

     As long as this sheep dip continues, we're doomed.

Government vs sheep? Sounds like a slaughter. Chess players vs the pieces, that's more like it, considering everyone is getting played.

     Last night brought it all home to me.

     Two acquaintances were over for dinner last night. Both were not born here, and each holds a real, legally obtained green card.

     One of them asked me, "Why does the Government here steal your money and not really give you much of anything in return?"

     If the rest of the world can see it, why can't the Foolish sheep?

The sheep no longer serve government....they just don't produce enough tax receipts anymore....the sheep are basically worthless in Washington's and Wall Street's eyes.....

they are simply addicted to entitlements....
