    You said a mouth full there. It makes me wonder what we're going to do. As for international reaction we're turning into Israel with domestic attacks.

    It just went right over your head didn't it... The next time the right yells about money influencing the left, I want you to remember this example. Braman has no problem saying that Rubio is advancing his agenda. THAT should worry you, and yes they should be jailed.

    Uh, no, it's the result of the corporate's increased influence. If the people of this country weren't so weak we could put a stop to this nonsense.

    Would those be the same people who keep wanting the government to do more and more for them or the people who do want the government to be less involved in day-to-day life that often get made fun of by many on this forum?

    I liked it better when the government was the umpire, not one of the players.

    No, now you're drifting off. I liked it better in the old days too, but since about 1979 the corporate has moved on the whole country, changed the paradigm, and now they're openly using our government, and visa versa to advance an agenda - that is protected by people on this forum who want government "stay out of everyday lives".

    Take away the usefulness of the tool (government) and the tool stops being used for things it was not intended. It is this very topic which illustrates the issue. It isn't the person doing the buying that is at fault, it is the person who is being bought. Public service was never intended as an avenue to become rich and yet how many people leave office dozens of times wealthier than they left?

    I could not agree with you more. The point is - the right is being bought, so don't complain about the left.
