You would think a large group of suddenly concerned politicians have been in a news vacuum for the past decade or so.
It isn't like this is anything new.
Thousands of people have been pointing out this phenomenon for a very long time now.
So why all of a sudden are politicians putting on their very concerned faces and speaking out in public about something that they enabled?
Just in case you haven't figured this out for yourself yet, let me boil all this concern down to two words for you.
It's all about the optics baby.
Politicians are the most opportunistic animals on the planet, bar none.
They don't give a flying FUCK about you, your dog or anybody else either, only the one thing that is going to get them re elected.
This is why the concerned faces started popping up, who can leverage the most votes out of the concern du jour.
Politicians are douche bags, never, ever, forget that.
