Those ‘piecrust promises’ are easy to break

Published: Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

Members of the governmental employees unions are upset that politicians are not keeping promises.

Girls complain that men do not respect them in the morning.

Men complain that girls are not interested in “nice guys.”

Nothing changes. The rich get richer, and the poor get poorer. The politician gets richer, and the taxpayer gets poorer.

Beware of piecrust promises. They are easy to make and easy to break.
