Should people fear their gubamint here?

When it operates in such a detached mode..
Reflective of its leadership.
‘The sharply worded letter is the latest salvo from members of Congress...’
Oh my, not a sharply worded letter!!! LOL, Congress is worthless. They create these beasts only to play the surprised act when they inevitably go rogue. Heaven forbid they stop feeding it. That might be too decisive.
