Why does political office seem to have no retirement age? Some of those old farts shouldn’t be running anything more complicated than a walking stick. No offense to old people in politics, but Jesus, just quit when the people whose lives you’re deciding upon are like two generations removed from yours. I’d gladly pay more taxes to fund their pensions if we can get them to stop running this country.
These days when I say something in confidence to anyone over the Internet adding “I hope this will stay between us” I mentally append that statement with “and Google/Facebook, the Indian government, NSA, very possibly the Chinese/Pakistani government, and assorted other smaller players in the lucrative and burgeoning ‘Invade People’s Privacy’ space.”
