THE GOVERNOR, THE HOOKER & THE FEDS. Big Brother would be proud.

“What a Business. You got it. You Sell it. You still got it.” Unknown Madam

Ok! The State of New York had a Governor who could afford to pay too much for a Hooker. Big deal! He is a Politician and Politicians always spend too much for everything. if you don’t believe that look at the Federal budget. Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger once noted ‘Power is the greatest aphrodisiac’. The Spitzer debacle places him in the company of bounders ranging from actor Hugh Grant to Senator Larry Craig.

Q: Why do men name their penis?
A: They don’t like having their decisions made by a stranger.
Spitzer is one of a long line of luminaries who have become victim to “Viagra Syndrome” first noticed when patients taking heart medicine experienced cardiac problems. The syndrome occurs when a males has an erection. Blood and all capability of thought rush from the Head and Brain to the third leg rendering the victim incapable of making a rational decision. Fortunately this malady is short-lived and disappears rapidly after a time. The former Governor need not be prosecuted. Surly he will be persecuted for the rest of his life, not by the Feds but by his wife.

“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Benjamin Franklin.

What is more worrisome than a Horney Governor is the way he was caught. It was the I.R.S. monitoring financial transactions. The law says you have to report cash transactions of more than ten thousand dollars. Spitzer’s short term lease cost less than Five Grand. If the Revenuers track chump change that closely we all have to worry. If I send my sister Five Grand how do I know some Fed isn’t keeping track. Until the so called “War on Drugs” you could walk into a bank and deposit a suitcase full of cash. It was none of Washington’s business then and it should be none of the Governments business now.

Companies are developing microscopic radio frequency identification chips that can be embedded in paper currency. When this technology matures every piece of paper currency in the nation can be tracked by the Government. That makes George Orwell’s “Big Brother” look like an uninformed ignoramus.

Since the start of the “Cold War” Washington has used the fear of the unknown to con Americans into giving up their freedom. Give your bank your social security number so Uncle Sam can track your finances. Burn the ten thousand dollar bank note and print nothing larger than one hundred dollars, require the reporting of all cash transaction of over ten thousand dollars. Government has to know. It’s in the “National Interest” to know where you are spending your money. At least that’s their story and they are sticking to it. The problem is the public is buying this chimera.

My theory: a lot of politicians are in their line of work because they really dislike themselves (trendy phrase: self-esteem problems). The use of power over others, adoration from the masses, and the like is a way to compensate for their own doubts about their self-worth. Psychologists who have studied "hardball politicians" note they often have disconnected morals -- they want to appear one way in public, but have deep flaws in private. Eliot Spitzer, Bill Clinton, the list I'm sure is much longer than we'd like to think.

More importantly than Spitzer’s expensive hard-on is:

WHAT WERE THE FEDS THINKING?

Perhaps it went like this.

“We have a limited budget. We can use it to protect Americans from terrorists, or nail a Governor with a hard-on. What a no-brainer. If we nail a terrorist no one will know, but if we nail Spitzer it’s a public feather in out hat. We get to hold a news conference, people will think we are accomplishing something, and well get more for next years budget.””
