This is more in the nature of a vent than a political analysis, but I have noticed a disturbing trend lately.
One of my favorite magazines is "The Weekly Standard", yes that "neo-con" publication that some folks left and right love to hate. Of late, each issue contains one or more full page ads for very high-end Washington, D.C. restaurants - the kind to which lobbyists and politicians repair after a hard day micro-managing our lives.
These ads only serve to remind me that far to much of our money winds up in that place, to be spent by people who don't really do anything productive.
Washington, D.C. needs to become a far less important place for our nation.
