    What say you, Briefers?
No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.

December ... hopefully this will kick off 2018 for the better.
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

Except no one really knows for sure what's in it.  I keep hearing the usual Democrats --" it will hurt the middle class" line and the Republicans -- "it will benefit the middle/working class" line -- but this is going to be another one of those "we have to pass it to know what's in it" things before we know who is right.  I truly resent our elected representatives assuming they know what's best for us and thinking we would be too stupid to understand the legislation.  Whatever happened to all those pledges of transparency? 

The way I figure -- whatever slapdash piece of karp legislation they pass -- someone will get hurt by it and it will only make a terrible system worse.  Trump and the Republicans need a win. so they will pass and sign anything, call it "tax reform" and pat themselves on the back, declaring they kept their promise to the voters. 

Sorry, but I don't have the optimism you have.  I've been lied to one too many times.

Something will pass in December, but it won’t be reform in any sense of the word.

A picture. Just hit flush and turn the light out when you leave.
