Monumental Moment in History

Is it just me, or does it scare the hell out of you too, when any politician uses the words “monumental moment in history?” That usually means they are preparing to reach deeper into the pockets of their constituents.

I don’t care what side you’re on. When a politician of any stripe declares any event or time frame to be monumental, you can bet they are focusing more on their re-election than on what is the right thing to do for the people they represent.
