Deep State Swamp Lizards & A Crumbling America

As a political junkie I watch CSPAN whenever I am not doing something more important.  I use it to put me to sleep at night.  CSPAN is part of Fake News even though it is supposed to be non partisan.  Whenever a Conservative or Republican calls in, they are cut off immediately. Socialist Fascists ( AKA Democrats ) are allowed to spout their Trump hatred all day long.  It gets really old; but it is what it is.  What is really interesting is watching all the Deep State Swamp lizards often on C-Span, the thousands of federal administrators, Secretaries and otherwise clowns feeding at the trough in clear view.  

It is no coincidence that the highest priced home zip codes surround Washington DC, where many of these Swamp Lizards live.  That is because though in the old days government employees used to make less money than employees in the private sector doing the same work, today government employees make a lot more than private sector employees and get much better benefits and pensions at taxpayer expense.  What is infuriating is that the Socialist Fascists with the help of some RINOS recently enacted a $1.2 trillion infrastructure package to help deal with America's crumbling infrastructure.  

Though we have paid trillions of dollars in taxes for the last 30 or more years, much of that money has been wasted on foreign wars and all sorts of entitlements and boondoggles not to mention Deep State Swamp Lizards so much so that roads have not been repaired even though the gas tax is supposed to cover roads, bridges have not be maintained, water systems are corroded etc. etc. etc.  There would have been no need for an Infrastructure Bill today if politicians of both parties and Deep State Swamp Lizards had just done their jobs for the last 30 years and dealt with our crumbling infrastructure.

Just watch a House or Senate Hearing on C-Span.  Members of the House and the Senate talk of $10 Billion for some pet project as though it is 99 cents.  Rather, $10 Billion is chump change in the Washington DC Swamp.  And, while it is not as bad at the state level, there are also Deep State Swamp Lizards working at the local, county, state and school district levels wasting our money and achieving little that matters to the American people.  The best of many examples are public schools that spend more on education than any other country in the world yet half the kids in our country cannot read or do math at grade level.  But, there is also gridlock in many cities since "freeways" or toll roads have not kept up with the population.  California that has a water shortage has not built a new dam since 1985 in spite of the highest taxes in the country.  

Democracy is great; but it is inherently corrupt.  Our hard earned money is regularly stolen or wasted by corrupt politicians and government employees.  This is why they detested Donald Trump so much.  Trump was not one of them.  We really have to assume that half the money they collect from us in taxes will be stolen or wasted one way or another.  Certainly, the trillions of dollars spent on the war on poverty since the New Deal and the Great Society has not eliminated poverty, which is greater today than years ago.  If you happen to run into a Deep State Swamp Lizard, express your dissatisfaction and anger at their incompetence.  These characters are wrecking our country.  Half of them could be FIRED and nobody would know the difference.  In fact, we would all be better off if their jobs were eliminated.  But don't count on it because bureaucracies only get bigger at our expense and even more corrupt.
