WHEN THE TAIL "WAGS" THE DOG.

Several years ago, I was watching/listening to a morning news station when the TV Host began talking about Hillary Clinton’s many years of SERVICE TO AMERICA.  The Host began detailing how Hillary had so humbly-served as Arkansas's FIRST LADY then proceeded to faithfully- serve--- as AMERICA's FIRST LADY.  For me, the most “regurgitating” moment came when the commentator said---- "Hillary has spent a lifetime as a DEVOTED PUBLIC SERVANT—while forever-improving the Rights of Women and Children in America."

PUBLIC  SERVANT?!?!?!?  Does Hillary clean toilets at the Bus Station, or pick up trash on the streets of DC?!?!?!  Is Hillary volunteering to feed the homeless or-- read to the sick and dying at a local Hospice?!?!? 

Look in the mirror, my friend, and you'll see a Public Servant.  Yes, YOU!   YOU pay taxes---on every item you purchase and, once a year, you pay for everything you own---like your house, your car, personal property and----even your money!!!!!!  WE ARE THE PUBLIC SERVANTS!!!!! WE ARE THE SLAVES who keep AMERICA-- UP and RUNNING.  WE are the unappreciated idiots who pay the salaries of government workers and most-particularly---the salaries of Politicians---like Nancy Pelosi----who “SERVE” in Congress and---grow richer by the minute!!!!!

BUT, in spite of big salaries, endless perks, houses, cars, travel expenses, and personal staff-- WE provide "lawmakers"----it still isn't enough for these  “celebrities”!!!!!   Instead of performing their jobs---and doing what they were elected/hired to do, they  ignore us-- their employer-- and blatantly-perform illegal acts--make under-the-table deals-- that elevate them to Billionaire Status! 

 I despise the word "SERVES."  It makes me want to puke to hear that "Representative Hill” SERVES in the House" or "Chuck Schumer SERVES in the Senate!!!!!!" And, I still see RED when I hear--"Hillary Clinton SERVED as a First Lady, SERVED as a US Senator, AND SERVED as Secretary of State!!!!!!"

 WE---The America Taxpayers---are the poor saps--- who "SERVE" at the will of these Political Criminals. As most of us struggle to pay our bills each month ----remember---- WE haven't received a worthwhile "cost of living" increase for years BUT---- the U.S. President, Congress, and every government official---whose salaries are paid BY TAXPAYERS ----receive a substantial pay increase--regularly--every year. AND, in case you didn't know it----Congress automatically-vote themselves’ a hefty pay raise-- every year. 

 Yes, it's our money yet---every year-Congress votes on whether or not, Social Security Recepients receive a "Cost of Living" increase and--if so--how much?!?! ?!?!?  The average increase for those on Social Security has been between four and ten dollars each month. And, at the same time, the govenment increases the cost of Medicare, monthy, by at least--ten or fifteen dollars. Forget any hope of ever---getting ahead. 

SO---I'd like to know exactly "when"--- THE CABOOSE successfully-ditched THE ENGINE--and put itself in- charge of THE TRAIN and-- it's destination?!?!?

AS WE SAY IN THE SOUTH: “THIS OLD DOG DON’T HUNT”!!!!!!!
