The 24 hour noise channels have been trumpeting a story released by the Washington Post about the lavish spending habits of both political parties. I suggest you take a few minutes and read the original story by R. Jeffery Smith, a Washington Post Staff Writer at:
When administrative and fundraising expenses consume 59% of total revenue for the Democrat Party and 68% for the Republican Party there is something very wrong in the operation of both political parties. I know the old suggestion that it takes money to make money, but this is both ridiculous and might even represent criminal conduct.
Your Commander does not know about you, but my computer receives emails almost daily from both political parties begging for contributions so they can fund their election campaigns. Long ago I witnessed first hand the excessive spending at Washington fund raisers for politicians and at that time I decided to no longer contribute to this abuse and participate in Pay for Play complicity.
Don’t you sometime wonder if you are the only one left in America who does not have your hand in the till or in somebody’s pocket? All the crooks are not in the penitentiary. One certainly wonders just where this great country is going considering the growing fact that corruption and deception is ramped in our government locally, regionally and nationally. The answer to that question is that it is rapidly sliding down the hill to financial ruin.
