oh, I hear ya, DixThat's how government works because they know that the taxes coming in can be arbitrarily altered by simply raising them and we've no choice but to pay. God forbid that we have any accountability on government spending. Both parties have been guilty of this and it's about time it stops. Our taxes are already high enough as it is.
and hubby might not appreciate me sayin so, but as much as I despise bureaucrats, the only thing worse than a bureaucrat is a military bureaucrat, ex- or otherwise. 'Ex' because they have that idiot military mind-set drilled into their skulls; 'current' because they swap them out every 3 or 4 years with posting changes. And each new CO wants to leave their 'mark' so a whole new set of rules 'n hoops come out for everyone to jump through.
as you can imagine after a few decades of this change for the sake of change nonsense you develop an attitude of "fuck your stupid rules. you'll be gone in four years and then it's more rules" you just ignore them after a while, barely paying lip-service to any rules. I just dismiss them with "rules are made by idiots for idiots" and don't pay 'em no nevermind.
