Bob Emmers Quote

“The task of government in this enlightened time does not extend to actually dealing with problems. Solving problems might put bureaucrats out of work. No, the task of government is to make it look as though problems have been solved, while continuing to keep the maximum number of consultants and bureaucrats employed dealing with them.”

When DC sees problems it does not attempt to solve them-just throws money at them.

Government doesn't solve problems, it creates them.

Absolutely. And, yes, how dare we 'whine' about our enslavement to a perpetual debt that we have no control over. And how dare we whine about a corrupt Congress and President. Just bend over and take what it coming to you, right, Reston?

Mary, without a doubt Reston is a Government dependant. (sycophant)
