It Doesn’t Take a Metropolis to Lose Touch

I live in a small(ish) town so it wouldn’t seem out of the normal for me, while out running errands, to see people I knew, people I had worked with, or even neighbors. Suffice to say that this almost never occurs. Even going out to eat. We have a few large restaurants here and I never see anyone I know. Is it I am the only one that goes out and about.

Congress is Corrupt

Think about this: Liz Cheney, who lost her bid to be the (only) representative of Wyoming last evening, was supposedly worth around $7 million when she first entered congress 6 years ago. Today, it’s estimated that she’s worth as much as $44 million dollars. On a salary, before taxes, of $174,000 per year, how exactly does that work out? Just askin’ for someone else. Also, it looks like one of the last of the neocons are gone from congress. These are the ones that pushed us into Iraq in 204 and kept us in Afghanistan for twenty years. Think about how they became so rich.
