Today there is little to no dignity in workmanship. Simple things like making a manhole cover the same level as the street they are installed on is beyond the workers comprehension.
With the technology available today there is no excuse for doing poor, unsatisfactory work.
But leave to those involved to make excuses. What a pitiful display of ineptitude and laziness by politicians and workers alike.
One of the results of dummying down the educational system. Trickle down theory at work - from dumb to dumber.
To understand the current crop of leftist politicians one must review the educational system changes that have taken place since the late 1940s.
Liberal teachings made students less interested in real learning, but filled their minds with utopian dreams. There was less country loyalty taught to students.
In the 1940s and 50s grade school students the pledge of allegiance was recited every morning before class began. It not only gave one a proud feeling, it created loyal members of American society.
Students were taught to be independent, but loyal citizens, something that is missing today.
Changes were made to the educational system that slowly, but surely, led to a dumbing down of a large number of Americans.
Now the politicians are pushing laws to legalize recreational marijuana without fully studying the effects of the drug over time. The leftist politicians are doing this for one reason - the tax money garnered by government.
They don't care what problems come with legalizing recreational use of the drug.
The socialist left's only concern is to increase money for the state. They are not interested in being fiscally responsible and stopping the free giveaways.
It also allows the politicians to exert some control; over the citizens.
There are 2 liberals in the U S government that think they have the answers to all the ills of the country.   The only problem is, they don't have all the answers and they are not willing to work with others who may have some of the answers.
Bi-partisanship doesn't give you all the marbles, it gives you a method of compromise with those with an opposing view.
Isn't it time to throw these liberal, do it my way or else, thinking individuals out.
Garbage pick-up is once a week, think about it!
