The bane of the government class…

Good morning, Netizens...

How utterly accurate David Horsey's cartoon this morning is! The unanswered question that remains, like a crusty old penny on the tip of ones fingers is, how much money is actually passing between lobbyists and the government that got elected promising to end this largesse?

I dearly love watching some of the same banks and lending institutions that stood up quickly for the "free handouts" when President Obama told us we had to save them, are the same institutions that today are back to business as usual, paying huge bonuses, lavish parties for their high-rolling clients and other nefarious deeds? I once laughed at their television advertising.

Now, like the mother searching for her lost child,  I simply wonder where the banking lobbyists are tonight? Or do I really want to know...
