    No question there is an element of corruption, but I also think - no I know - that there is a fairly robust group who are simply shackled by ideological thought and/or fear of being called "liberal".

    That is what worries me the most.  Because you count on the honest people to step up and push to "do the right thing", but if they are pre-condidtioned to believe that "the right thing" is impossible and potentially political poison, then they will not - and the corrupt folks win the day.

      Its one of the only professions that seems immune to automation, offshoring, outsourcing and reengineering. They have good hours and LONG vacations, too. Plus other perks.

      If I was a patrician, I would say to my son.

      "Politics"

        I just PRAY that whoever would investigate it does.

        These Senators and Congresspeople who have taken money from the contract killers and drug companies should step down.

        Why don't they resign, now?

        Government employees are told not to take even small gifts from anybody.

        Obviously these crooks played hookey during their orientations.
