The Outrage!

Clearly, one of the most important matters for our national security is that some teachers in New York City might be getting paid for little work.

Yes, yes, I know. It’s “taxpayers’ money”! I suppose. But isn’t it also “TAXPAYERS’ MONEY” when tax-cut funded companies who feed off the public teet for contracts and whose executives pay little or no tax using schemes almost no one can afford engage in self-parodying materialism?

The fact that this kind of thing is even in the news might signal that we have reached a kind of Lithium stupor of good times like the 1990s. In fact, it just signals that outrages, both imagined and exaggerated, are the stock and trade of today’s politics.

Really, folks. This is about #129,266 on our list of things to do.
