  •  Have they no shame? (11+ / 0-)

    Of course not—they're profiting handsomely at the public's expense and I'm sure their friends and family manage to find ways to justify their despicable behavior.

    Too bad they can't be prosecuted for public corruption.

          of legal bribery cash, but that doesn't mean giving up.
          It's all about critical mass.

          Change only happens when  enough people join together and act.
          Which is probably one of the reasons why the people who control the media and own politicians and judges have such a vested interest in perpetuating the right/ left, liberal/conservative, culture wars, politics as professional wrestling and cultural identity meme's.

          They are deeply vested in keeping Americans from coming together...... of  course, unless it involves attacking other nations or other people, which is always good for business as it's a lucrative opportunity to further loot the Treasury.

      •  and the rest of us are "takers" and (3+ / 0-)

        the social safety net MUST be cut while all this goes on behind the curtain.  Where there is smoke there will be fire if Democrats fail the American voters.

        Do not adjust your mind, there is a flaw in reality.
