Happy 727 Day!
Once upon a time, it was explained to me – at great length – that I “needed” to get on board and support an increase in pay for some legislators who were feeling like they weren’t being paid enough. If the pay rise didn’t get passed, they explained, it would be tragic. Not for themselves, you see, but for the long-term health of government. Without higher pay, you see, the “best people” would never be interested in serving in government.
Uh-huh, I said… so if it’s such a crappy, low paying, difficult job, why did you want it in the first place?
When Trump was campaigning for the White House, he assured us that we needed – and he would deliver – the “best people” to be in government.
And who exactly are these “best people?” Legislators? Administration Officials? Staffers? Councilmembers? Public Safety? Sanitation Engineers?
Believe it or not, St. George Tucker had a good deal to say about the people who should be in government…
I cannot believe how misinformed Conservatives are about the Santa Barabara (and other places) Straw Ban! You people just do not get it!
