Have you ever noticed that the more things change, the more they stay the same?
Nope. I have never noticed this. I have always noticed that the more things change, they change. And the more things stay the same, the more they stay the same.
I have noticed a bunch of people trying to claim things changed when they actually did not change. I think this might be what this saying is in reference to. I think politics is behind this saying. It sounds like something a politician would say. Either that or a stupid writer that has been listening to politicians so long that they are starting to think like a politician.
