UPDATE: due to some issues with the email system it seems that notifications for the last two posts to the blog were never sent out. This is an attempt to remedy that situation. Hopefully it works. Info about the June meeting is at the bottom of the page.
If there was ever any doubt of the truth of Lord Acton’s dictum, “All power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely” the current state of the Deep State, and the Democratic Party lays it to rest. Unfortunately corruption is catching, and a good deal of the Republican Party is clearly also infected. Yes, yes, I know: “Never criticize a fellow Republican.” In deference to the Gipper I will refrain from naming names, but we all know. We know.
But when it comes to bald-faced, criminally insane rapacity I grant the Democratic Party has no peers. The Donks can hold their own even in the company of such colossal corrupto-crats as African potentates, presidents of ex-Soviet prison states, Mexican drug lords, Chinese officials and Arab slave traders In comparison practitioners of the world’s oldest profession are shining models of restrained free market virtue. Give ’em a cheer, boys and girls! Hip hip! Hooray! And thank the bought and paid for media that keep such grisly scenes from our innocent eyes. Them’s what’s got ’em, anyhow.
That’ what makes this June’s monthly dinner talk so fascinating. John Oliphant is going to talk about the Swamp. You absolutely don’t want to miss this one. It is going to be delicious.
