Everybody Wants to Rule the World

“Everybody Wants to Rule the World” is not just the title to a song by “Tears for Fears.”  It is not just the theme music played at the beginning and ending of Dennis Miller Live.  Everybody wants to rule the world is the position that more and more people seem to be taking when it comes to contracting with the government.  

My observation is there are more than enough contracting opportunities to go around for all of us.  However, some people want their share and as much of yours and yours and yours as they can possibly get.  There are actually frameworks where this is perfectly legal and mutually beneficial, but unfortunately, there are also frameworks where some people take advantage of situations and exploit people and circumstances to their own personal and selfish benefit. 

In the movie, “Wall Street,” Michael Douglas’ character, Gordon Gecko said that “greed is good.  In the second installment, Wall Street II, Money Never Sleeps, he said that ‘not only is greed good, now it is also legal.”  Given events of the past several years, that statement seems to ring very true.  What a sad state of affairs.  There are still plenty good guys out here – and a great many of them wore our nation’s uniforms. 

See you on the high ground!
