...til the cows come home.

We should we used to being betrayed by our elected representatives by now, but maybe we get the elected representatives we deserve. After all, we insist on flying, driving and consuming like hormonally imbalanced teenagers, without ever inconveniencing ourselves by participating in the day to day of our democratic institutions. What with being too busy ladder-scrambling and splashing our ever more conspicuous wealth, we simply don't have time for the tedious constraints of planet husbandry.
So maybe stealing the corn from the poor and pouring half of it into our cars and the other half into our cows is the best way forward.
