There’s no trick to being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you.”   —   Will Rogers

(Boy.  If old Will thought things were bad in his day . . .  At least he was mainly referring to our government’s ineptness, instead of the corruptness that pervades our government today.  Sure, there was corruption back then.  Our era certainly didn’t invent corruption.  But, today the corruption has become institutionalized.  So much so that we’re not only numb to it, we actually kind of expect it.  And that is sad.  At least in his day you could, relatively easily, get an audience with your senator or representative.  Nowadays, the main way to get an audience with any member of Congress is to be a lobbyist with a deep pocket of M.O.N.E.Y.!  Like with so many things that are wrong in society today we inadvertently let it happen.  Too much trust, not enough involvement, too much apathy, a little bit . . . a lot of bit . . . of all three.  One thing we could do, and should do, is insist on term limits.  Because, when these people become ensconced in their positions of power they quickly become inured to the ugly sense of entitlement.  If they knew that their time was short, and/or that we insisted on some measurable report card of productivity and achievement, in order to be allowed to run again, they would have to put us first.  Then maybe we would have a more accountable and productive government.  We need to take back our government, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
