Ahhh . . . . Ya

So, on this cloudy and cold afternoon, I am sitting in le Comfy Chair with my cuppie o’ tea, watching the world go by on the interwebs and reviewing a few documents pro bono, in a town that laid off public school teachers and cut civil service salaries to make budget.

And on my lunch break, what to my wondering eyes should appear?

Pawty!  It’s a birfday!!!!!

Guards gone wild!!!!

I am so glad that our federal government is staffed by such elite and responsible professionals, what quality representatives of democratic government.  What a fantastic example to an emerging democracy like Colombia, struggling with a history of government corruption, public distrust and pervasive crime.  And to think, these people passed the security clearance process.  Having just completed my taxes and received my refund this month, I am thrilled that my tax dollars are spent to support such august activities.   Oh wait!  Maybe that’s the money that we borrow from China . . . .

What would Mr. Neely and his wife have done for his birfday if the federal government hadn’t been there to pay for the 17-day vacation in the Pacific Islands?  I’ll keep that in mind on my next birthday—where do I file for the 17-day Pacific vacation?  Or perhaps I’m only eligible for the trip to Colombia with club night.  If a federal executive with a $180,000 salary is eligible for this subsidy, then, surely, I would.  (Don’t call me . . . .)

‘Nuff said.
