Hemming swindles from the public an annual salary of roughly $187,000.00. This is according to a 2016 Acadia document. Now that the curtain has been pulled back a bit, I see what we're getting for this money. I know that if you pay a decent mechanic $180,000.00 per year, you're going to end up with a lot of smooth running machinery.
Readers of the above statement will likely fall into one of two categories: those who knew this all along, and those who will find the statement absurd. I am putting this argument out there for the latter category and hopefully it will be read with an open mind. If you are the type of person who does not have the ability to question their own beliefs, and prefer the comfort of an echo-chamber, then this piece is probably not for you. I will offer only one caveat on my position: Donald Trump will only turn out to be more dangerous in the short-term if he blunders his way into a nuclear war.
