"One hand feeds the other"
"Bureaucratic hacks"
"Bureaucratic ennui"
"They don't hang you for what you don't do"
"There's graft and there's corruption"
"It's like shifting sand"
"Greased by patronage"
" Scotty beemer down"
"Bureaucrats run on red tape and inertia"
"Shadowboxing"
"Just got off the boat"
"A conservative is a liberal whose been mugged"
"Built by the lowest bidder"
