  • I'll see your Tom Delay and raise you a William Jefferson

    Whoops!

    Federal agents searched the Capitol Hill office of a Louisiana congressman under investigation on bribery charges Sunday, while newly released court papers said agents found $90,000 in cash last year in his Washington home.
    Nothing like cold hard cash in the freezer vs. an alleged technical violation of a state campaign financing law.

    It's going to be an ugly fall.

          Yeah, and then you'll show up on CNN when the fed sends a tank in to take over your compound, Mr. Nutbar. ;)

            "The Politicians" may be evil, but "The People" are stupid, so you don't get a very good government either way. Haven't you heard that the intelligence of a crowd is inversely related to its size? :p

              I think the people are slightly less stupid than you do.

                I don't know, Kero... I've met a few politicians who would give your groveling masses of ignorants a run for their money.

                  I'll raise your Wiliam Jefferson with a Duke Cunningham, Bob Ney, Conrad Burns, John Doolittle, David Safavian, Tony Rudy, Ed Buckham, Neil Volz, and Michael Scanlon

                  You can mention one or perhaps two corrupt Democrats if you like but I can go on all night with names of GOP'ers who have acted wholly unethically or brazenly taken part in the corruption which was institutionalized by Tom DeLay.

                  Call?

                    Groveling? An ignorant who doesn't try to control other people's lives doesn't create any problems--its only the ignorants who have convinced themselves that they know better than everyone else who are dangerous. And unfortunately, they have a habit of being the loudest speakers in the masses =/

                    Of course, there's plenty of room for intersection between ignorants and politicians. So don't think I'm praising how gifted our politicians are or anything. :)

                      Do we need to get back into this? It wouldn't be that hard to come up with a long laundry list of corrupt Democrats right along side the laundry list of corrupt Republicans.

                      Don't think for a MINUTE that any one party is far superior to the other when it comes to corruption.

                        Obviously $160,000 a year just isn't enough to sit in a chair and raise your hand anymore. :madsmile:

                          Whats really sad is corruption is so widely known and yet nothing is done to stop it, its ussually after a case like this people start to "act" but in a couple months it will be right back to how it was. I guess if the government doesnt care where my tax dollars go then whats the point in supporting them?...more of a retorical question

                              The title of the thread does kinda beg the question.
