  1. you hafta explain this. There must be some interesting quote or situation to which you are referring.

    Oh wait, you mean that it is ironic that politicians who want small government are vying for a place in it? That’s not really making it bigger though, is it?

    AND I like small government and have no desire to run for office. Yet. You wanna see some skeletons? Just wait till they start looking in MY closets. 😉

    Yeah, I’m just saying that it is ironic that the guys (running for office) who say they want to make gov’t smaller say, “Send ME to Washington! I’ll make government smaller!” I’m suggesting, facetiously, that government is equal to the NUMBER of people working in it. Just posting a joke that I’ve told for years.
