    Yeah, we remember Bob Ney. We also remember that aside from him, the other, "corrupt", Republicans were simply guilty of ****ing, sucking cock and uttering an alledged racial slur that he made up off the top of this head.

    It's no wonder Democrats want to give convicts the right to vote.

    I think Rangle and the rest of the Congressional Black Caucus all need to be serving 20 years in prison.

    I think all politicians convicted of corruption should be serving time in a real prison(not some white collar prison). Unlike most around here, that is all politicians, democrat and republican. I am not one of the many who see corruption as just another chance to score political points, I actually take it seriously.

Finally, Charlie Rangel actually seems to be a nice guy who I just disagree with and it seems he fell into the ethics trap that comes with getting away with too much for too long......seen it first hand in my industry and these things seem to get easier for people after getting away with the first minor wrong thing. It's kind of a shame really.

    I am 50/50 on them but tend to think they would do more good than bad. The biggest concern I have against term limits is that one great statesman that would be forced to move on but then again it would probably wash out the bad ones at healthy ratio so I really couldn't guess which argument I'm for yet.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
