From Richard P.: I appreciate your daily mailings. But why is the tone so negative? Why are you so against those of us who work in Washington, D.C.?

For the most part, career people in D.C. are very dedicated to this country. (I’m not speaking of the morons America elects…)

Reeves’ Comment: Richard, forgive us if we’re skeptical of news or “programs” coming out of D.C. There are indeed plenty of well-meaning and talented people like yourself in the bureaucracy. The problem lies in the nature of the system itself…

As China’s infamous Chairman Mao admitted, “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” When the gun wielders are above the law… you get the dangerous situation we find ourselves in as Americans today. Thanks for your note.
