When I saw these threads, my first thought was wondering how long it would take people to start pointing to others. Apparently not long.
For those who still have not figured it our, corruption has nothing to do with parties or partisan politics, and everything to do with people abusing their power. Rangel was found guilty of being corrupt, and deserves everything he gets. This has nothing to do with his party. DeLay was convicted of a crime, and deserves everything he gets. This has nothing to do with his party. I am a liberal democrat, and I don't give a **** that DeLay is a republican. The only thing that matters is he is a criminal.
You can go back to your mindless partisan finger pointing now, sorry to distract you from it.
The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
