A Parable

By commenter "Dang" at the HQ.

So you live outside of town and your house catches on fire. You call the fire department and they tell you they can't make it there in time to put out the fire and the fire chief goes to bed while your house burns to the ground and members of you family die. When you try to find out what the hell just happened the deputy fire chief asks, "What difference, at this point, does it make?" And then that deputy fire chief gets an award for her service.

This is the state of the nation at the moment.
