Maybe I like to find the best in everyone. The idea that anyone who gives up huge salaries and access to milking companies for even more pay via stock and stock options to take a position in public service to make themselves richer is simply not credible to anyone with a unbiased clue.

The way I look at it, if you want to FIX something busted by meddlers adding so many rules, regulations and attempts to redistribute wealth for the benefit of society that was a TOTAL FAILURE, you hire those who EXCELLED under the current set of rules making the maximum for themselves and their shareholders.

What you do is TASK them with using their brains to fix the system to benefit EVERYONE and their payment is a legacy of making the US a better place for everyone.

This is a stark contrast from how many in the past have used the office to go from "humble means" to net worth in the hundreds of millions basically peddling influence (Al Gore and the Clinton Foundation seem logical examples) while some like Bush II went away quietly.

Recall I didn't vote for "The Orange One" but I am sure chuckling at how worried so many are who profited well under large government that often rewards you for not working to full potential. California is REALLY upset with the election but I remind myself that probably one third our citizens get a check from the government....

I'm looking forward to both SNL skits making fun of "The Orange One" and his inability to have a sense of humor about himself... almost as much as I'm looking forward to perhaps having a chance to see a better system that actually encourages work and progress rather than seeing how much you can suck off the government and let someone else do the heavy lifting.
