All day I have listened to the dingbats yelling how "the government has failed" or "the government can't solve our problems" or "the government is too big and must be reduced in size."

Sounds real good. But as soon as we have some catastrophe, such as a flood, a hurricane or a tornado, what do we hear? "The government ain't doing enough for us" or "the government should be doing (fill in the blank)."

Sorry! You can't have it both ways. This reminds me something that happened during a public hearing on zoning in a western county. One old farmer stood up and declaimed "Ain't nobody gonna tell me what I can do with my land, but don't you let my neighbor put a pig farm on his."

Make up your minds, dingbats.
