Niagara Gazette — Dairy cows do get old and reach the point of diminishing returns on investment, as do the government officials of ours that local authorities milk for tax dollars, and conversely they milk us of our tax dollars. It takes the cow about 12 years to become old; but unlike dairy cows, we can put non-producing politicians out to pasture every four years or so. Those politicians ought to be happy to be so placed; because their counterparts, the old, non-producing cows on dairy farms, are not put out to pasture to enjoy their waning days. Instead, they go from the dairy case to the meat case.
Lo, I hear the hoarse mowing of some comfortable old cows in our government. What’cha gonna do ‘bout it?Contact Ken Hamilton at email@example.com.
