A Fish That Grows And Drinks All The Water
a: Government bureaucracy ~
b: a goldfish
What: "Government bureaucracy is like a goldfish. If you put a little goldfish into a big fish tank, it will eventually grow to the size of that tank. Increasing the size of that fish tank, called Town Hall, will give the government goldfish more room to grow. Bureaucracies will always justify their existence and their need for more. They are not accountable to the taxpayers. So long as they don't screw up big time, or use town credit cards for escorts, their jobs are pretty much safe."
