Perhaps you will, as I did, shake your head in disbelief at this brief glimpse into bureaucratic Washington D.C.’s yawning hole of ignorance. Congressman Dana Rohrbacher, Republican from California, asks two simple questions of members of the current administration- the first is about the costs to American taxypayers for the
mess war in Afghanistan, and the second query concerns the numbers of the United States’ military who died or were wounded in Afghanistan in the previous year (the hearing took place in early December 2013).
Watch and weep and wonder what in tarnation these bureaucrats thought they were showing up on Capitol Hill to discuss if not these very basic questions:
Don’t you wonder what those three stooges are paid in salary and benefits each year? I’ll bet they know the answer to that in its full and obscene detail. Whatever they are paid, it is obviously far too much.
Dearest Baron, please get my smelling salts. I feel the vapors descending. What we need around here is a chaise longue so I can faint decorously whenever Washington’s foul depredations appear on the horizon.
