    they feed your fantasies and your false beliefs and you reward them. that is what they do.

    They are good at being the good boy and girl for Daddy and Mommy... great when you are a kid... mostly... but when the corporate parents and political insiders are the middlemen parents between you and the cookie jar... well... who's a good little boy or girl now?

    They groom up and coming con-men to be just that sort of politician, so when the puppet masters get burned eventually, well it is their own damn fault. Programming puppets to repeat the lies they believe will only end up fooling the string pullers in the end and burning them... but only after everyone else gets burned first.

    Pogo & Murphy's Law, every time. Also "Trust but verify" - St. Ronnie (hah...)
