Government Is ...

I hate the government. 

Not the idea of a government so much as the actual practice of government in the USA in this year of Grace, 2009.

Moffit points to an amendment offered by Rep. Dean Heller, R-NV, during a House Ways and Means Committee meeting just before the recess began that would have required Members to be covered by the Public Option plan if they approve it for private citizens.

Predictably, however, the Heller amendment was defeated, with all 21 committee Democrats voting against it. That vote is indicative of the reality that any bill requiring Congress to be covered by the same health care as the public has the proverbial snow ball in Hades’ chances  of being enacted.

MacLeod had a character in one of his books say that government was 'guys with guns ripping you off.'

In my experience government is guys sitting around deciding what is best for everyone, then deciding for a much better system for themselves.
