A good example of why wash.DC is booming big time while most of the country is barely hanging on. When 24% of the countries money flows through one place and 10% or more of that is siphoned off that one place gets rich and the rest of us suffer. Boom towns are created by some product that people want, need, and are willing to pay for. But this boom town's product is influence. Non productive, degrading, and always negative, influence generates wealth for those who wield it but produces nothing that benefits society as a whole and eventually leads to ruin for all!

Some things are easy to mock, such as Al Gore – Pope Gorus IV of the Holy Church of Global Warming – selling his Current TV for hundreds of millions of oil dollars. But some other things are so bizarre it’s difficult to mock them because they come across as mockery already. Such is the case with the “Capitol Wellness Expo” happening on Capitol Hill this week.

The master of ceremonies for the event is a woman named Judy Kosovich, an attorney who, among other things, has written of the need for people to reconnect with the Earth. OK, that’s...
