The local media is flapping its gums at the scandal of uncovering that Our aborted legislature has spent nearly $43 million in consulting contracts since 2005. That averages out to about a million dollars a month paid to people who live off of the Fools.
Allow Me an analogy: The Fools are dogs and the consultants are fleas. Think of the Fools as rabid dogs, out of their puny diseased brains, and the fleas, well--they are parasites.
Here's an egregious example of parasitic fleas and mindless curs: Koteen is a company that provides what is quaintly known as "a clipping service," ambulating through newspapers and magazines and nodding off to radio and TV reports. For this service to the so-called senate, Koteen has billed well over $800,000.
Koteen is owned by the brother of a former San Juan political candidate who still runs with the pack.
Koteen's only client--since 2005, when it was founded and had no experience in "clipping"--is the so-called senate.
Of course, in this "You lick My ass, I'll lick yours" world of rabidly-uncontrolled Fools, the pack comes together and makes very little political hay about this, even in an election year. After all, the pack protects its own, even if they snarl and fight within their boundaries. It's a harsh world out there!
Here's a thought on how to fix this: Have each Fool pay 10% of his or her wasted salary to each consultant s/he chooses to hire. You say you need a consultant? Fine. Put your money where your mouth is. Watch how the "need" for consultants disappears overnight.
A second option is to simply shoot the rabid cur first, then ask the carcass what its intentions were.
The Jenius Has Spoken.
