    Sounds like he knows what has to be done. It's a shame nothing will come of it,too much corruption. Bulge.

    excellant


    About as good as Al's Gore rant about climate change.

    I for one would not be in favor of burning it down, but we need to get rid of the infection somehow.

    Pretty much what I have stated all along in this section of discussion. As long as money is involved in politics, there is going to be corruption. All government is to blame, both parties. Once you enter politics, there really are no other options. The fact of the matter is this country can not survive on one parties ideals alone. There must be compromise. There is none of that going on right now, anywhere. While we sit here and blame each party for the bad and take credit for the good, the countries ideals of which it was founded have been lost, and so goes this country. Along with its society. I was going to post this link, but glad Brian beat me to it.

    Again, if we guarantee that not a single incumbent is ever re-elected, WE have removed money from the equation. Our current PIMP-IN-CHIEF, is spending more time raising money & playing golf than paying attention to running things--oh I forgot he doesn't know how to do anything but campaign.

    Funny how the socialists always start talking "throw the bums out" whenever they're in the minority.

    I have failed to notice the difference between "greedy big business ceo's" and "greedy big business politicians."

    They both fly around on non commercial jets, stay in the best hotels, eat the best food, all on someone elses dime. Get insider information, pay little or no income tax, start out dirt poor, end up filty rich, end up with a golden parachute retirement plan and health care plan and have nothing in common with the common person.
