DC is Hunger Games’ Capitol City, not Catching Fire

katniss everdeenKatniss Everdeen met some good folks in the fictitious Capitol City as a Hunger Games-to-the-death participant. And there are good people in America’s all-too-real capitol city of Washington.

But the problem with both is that as they bask in the glow of big government bubbles, they prohibit those whose labor and tax revenues support their conspicuous consumption from joining the economic prosperity party. And yes, if the liberal Obama Democrats stay in power for much longer, they will get around to ending even the fracking boom.

Meanwhile, the government-run craze of the past century (interrupted only by brief conservative push-backs by Reagan and Newt) exploded exponentially with Obamacare, stimuli for government union employees, and wars war on coal and conservatives, respectively by the EPA and IRS; we witness many good people lobbying for what ought to be determined in a free market outside the District of Columbia:

The share of money the government spent on weapons and other hardware shrank as service contracts nearly tripled in value. At the peak in 2010, companies based in Rep. James Moran’s congressional district in Northern Virginia reaped $43 billion in federal contracts — roughly as much as the state of Texas.

An appropriate comparison of DC to the Capital City described in Hungar Games Trilogy. Alarming information about Fed Govt & DC players’ worsening financial corruption. I keep wondering Who is the Puppet Master pulling the strings to deconstruct America the Beautiful from the inside out. Why does the Puppet Master want to destroy America’s exceptionalism. Greed? Power? Envy? Is Puppet Master striving to develop an International New World Order & rid countries of their individualism, independence & nationalism?
