Most of the time I consider politics to be a forbidden topic when it comes to discussing things online. Flame wars are all to common.
Today is no different. Grrr.
Perhaps we need a TV show called "Stupid Political Tricks" in which various politicos get roasted over the foolish, wasteful and other hairbrained things they happen to be doing. It is particularly egregious when the people who are making the decisions do not even understand the issues. Don't get me started on the folks who utilize outright falsehoods to get their way.
Rant over, on to more interesting topics.
