Today’s version of “stonewalling” has recently taken on a new form. These people are not quite as inept as they seem. Think differently- there’s a purpose behind their intentionally coming unprepared, stating “I’ll have to get back to you on that, Senator, (or Representative) …”
Evidently, our representatives (meaning us) just don’t have a “need-to-know” — it’s (code) for “I’ll tell you later, but not in front of cameras.”
If the public becomes outraged, and they get fired (or have to “move-on”) they know a place will be made for them in some very lucrative – no-work-required position, just like former Deputy CIA head Michael Morell, like when he covered for Hillary’s Benghazi non-story!
Problem is, the Rulers of today’s ‘Roman empire’ … “those operating in the beltway” – they think we’re so stupid, … we’ll never notice — they have the March madness games, the collegiate and professional – gladiator games – to distract the citizenry … or sometimes, … they just dump it onto the news scene late Friday, counting on the story’s not having “legs” to make it to Monday morning …
To them, it’s just a new game … ‘see how much we can hide’ … and no one but a small percentage seems to care.
