I went into Govt after some right wingnut said at a campus demonstration "If you disagree with the Govt so much, get in there and change it".

I did, and I did.  Saved it a ton of money, got some programs straightened out, told truth to power (utterly shocked the agency CFO and his staff once), and left honorably after 30 years.

I shot the albatross once and leave it to younger mariners now...

And I salute you for that.  Having being inside for 20 years, after being outside for 10, I no longer think that GS people eat little babies ;-)

Do you think we theists eat adult humans?  Bet you reply with a joke.  Which says you won't.  Or might.

Knowing actual government people, has moderated my hatred for government, but not for politics.  I now accept that governments are supposed to be evil.  I just don't like politicians profiting from that ... and that tis no joke.

Oh c'mon, governments aren't "supposed to be evil".  They might be sometimes in some places where institutions are weak, but not "supposed to be".
