    Wishful thinking there Wiz! We probably have months or even years more of this turgid & farcical government to endure.

In the very unlikely event of a new set of governors, we would almost certainly soon find ourselves tormented by yet another set of hoods eager to enrich their own families at our expense. Parasitism is a complete way of life for politically-aligned people here. We won’t be shaking off this worms burden anytime soon.
