It has recently been announced that prominent local politicians have been accused of misappropriation of funds. Forgetting for the moment that the two terms are too closely related for us to come to any conclusions; Politicians and misappropriation of funds are two terms that always go together and are not usually identified as a problem, however they should be. The lying, thieving empty suits, AKA Local Politicians, should not be allowed to be so closely aligned with the term misappropriation of funds.
Somehow we have let the two terms slide together into the same sewer. It’s only partially their fault. Most of it is our fault, it must be, we keep voting them back into office. We’re never suspicious of them when we suspect they’re lying to us. To insure that we are aware that they are lying to us they should have a warning label tattooed on the foreheads. “If my lips are moving I’m probably lying to you AGAIN”
It’s not natural for anyone to fight that hard to be elected to serve the public for such a small salary with no opportunity for a significant reward for their efforts. Public service was originally intended as a sacrifice of time and effort for the good of the community. Or do you think that it’s possible that in addition to the paltry public salary and the satisfaction from selfless devotion to the community and their constituents there are other rewards that we’re not aware of? I suppose that you also think the Pope Poops in the woods.
I want to explain the situation to you. An individual of questionable moral character chooses to make a significant bundle of money, but has no honest trade or marketable skills. That individual then chooses to “serve” the community (they should be serving time, but we’ll get to that later). They suck up to influential members of the political class and shine themselves and their resumes up for public consumption. Think about the last job interview you went on, remember how you verbally enhanced your resume? Some of your lies and distortions were minor fabrications, but one or two items were on the same level of what a teenage boy tells a teenage girl to get into her pants in the back of Daddy’s car parked behind the Chuck E. Cheese at the local strip mall. Those fabrications and outright lies that you told were so far down the Liar Liar Pants on Fire scale compared to what a politician tells to get elected you should be ashamed of yourself for whatever guilt you started to feel when I accused you of your fabrications. After the lies and fabrications are told, some people with money that they probably swindled away from other honest citizens will donate to the campaign to pay for ads and hand outs and other expensive forms of distortions, misdirection and propaganda.
Once the Full Body Make Over is complete and they run for office, a whole bunch of significant and technical Election “Stuff” (I use the word stuff here in place of another word that starts with an S in case my mother reads this) happens to get these liars, thieves, and empty suits elected. So now we have some elected officials of questionable character and motives on the public payroll. Only the most naïve among us give them credit for their honest intentions to serve the public for the pitiful pay and the satisfaction of community service. The more skeptical among us suspect they are picking every pocket, public and private, that they stumble across until they can’t hold any more of our money (that condition hasn’t happened yet, they’re all still picking pockets). They create PACs and Charitable Organizations, and other non entities that they can direct and redirect money from our public funds to do some more good work i.e. “Service”. All of this takes time and effort so they are forced to hire a staff, to administer the entire scam, I mean operation. So now the elected official of questionable moral fiber has hired family and friends, all with public funds to help him misappropriate more funds from us his gullible constituents. Are you feeling the “service” yet? The last person to feel the “service” like this was in a confined space with someone named Bubba and was whimpering and crying for Mamma as the service took place.
My suggestion to all of you is very simple, when you vote, know who’s already in office, then vote for the other guy, twice if you can get away with it, but once at least. Any lying weasel who already got elected has violated our pockets too much already. If I’m going to get serviced, I want to get kissed as well.
Your task is to vote for the other guy; before we get serviced into the poor house.
