    This Monty Python skit sort of reminds me of the current discontent some of us seem to have--not just with not this government -- but ALL governments in general.

    As I'm finally getting around to filing my income taxes, today, this just seemed appropriate to the task at hand.

    Happy Tea Party, folks.​

    That sort of whining from the completely clueless does sound vaguely familiar doesn't it?

    Ah, so this is what the teabaggers are protesting...roads, irrigation, medicine, safety. It's all clear to me now.
