We now have to have a special committee of super-powerful congresspeople and booby-traps written into agreements just so that people will do their damn jobs.
In other words, everyone is conceding that we suck at democracy. Well, I guess it’s good that our elected leaders are finally finding some common ground. It just sucks that this common ground is “Democracy is too hard. We need to be told what to do.”
You know, folks are all the time saying how government should run more like a business. I assumed when people say that, they mean that, if someone is found to have lied about his qualifications and his ability to do his job, he’s either fired or allowed to resign quietly. I do not thing anyone means “We should let the nephew of the original owner flounder as the company president until he runs the company into the ground.”
And yet, here we are.
England, like many young people who can’t make it in these tough times, we may need to move back home for a while.
