Desert Home Toss with Zirp!

There is Endless Money for Endless War and Endless Surveillance , but there's nothing for the People.  Poor Schools, Poor Healthcare, Poor Jobs... Inflation, Deflation, Stagnation, Depression, Repression.  There is a deficit of Hope.

Bye Bye painting, you needed to be sacrificed
