Feeling Dirty Under The Tap

Gauging the level of evil by the torment it does to others is one way of determining politics. Politics is the anvil swinging from the narrow thread, the milestone carved from the labor of others, the words of a child used in a marketing campaign to sell an item the child cannot afford. Dress road kill in a designer dress and it is still road kill. Add amendments to it and you can call it policy. Cart it out in front of television cameras and it can become a cause. Hold a telethon and it can be a tax write-off. Politics is one more way to avoid the truth by leveling the playing field under the boiling point.
