Corruption

I’m tired of all the corruption I see in politics and business.

Chicago-style (and now Washington-style) politics

Chicago-style (and now Washington-style) politics

Imagine you had committed a crime and were going to go to jail for breaking the law. Now imagine that you had a friend that could keep you out of jail because of his connections. Would you allow your crime to be covered up?

Let’s say you do. Good for you. You outsmarted the system. This kind of thing happens every day. What’s it gonna hurt if you participate a little teeny tiny bit. Not gonna hurt anyone, right?

Aside from the fact you’re trying to defeat the Law of Justice, which is impossible due to its eternal nature, you are now in someone’s debt without even knowing what the price is.

A recent example is our own wonderful-human-being David Letterman. To be clear, he didn’t (as far as we know) break the law, just the rules. His acts and their concealment left him susceptible to extortion.

Extortion leads to corruption.

We hear of people in the media, politics and Hollywood every day who are “outed” because they fell out of favor. If you think that the ones we hear about are representative of the actual amount of criminal/dishonest behavior, you’re delusional. An understanding of statistics tells us that. When you see one cockroach there’s 100 more you don’t see.

And with all the “favors” and “compromises” that happen in our society, particularly in our political circles, I imagine that the corruptions is rampant and disgusting. How do these people sleep at night unless they’re all atheists?

Another example of extortion:

Welfare/Bailouts.

Entitlement issues and lack of discipline leave us open to extortion from our corrupt government who uses our weaknesses to amass power and control of us. If we stop playing the game, they will cut us off. Inability to fail is unhealthy to a free society.

Absence of morality is the root problem in our society and only its elimination will put us back on track. Until we fix that, it doesn’t matter what ‘solutions we present. They won’t fix the problem. This is why we cannot continue doing the same things over and over, electing the same types of people over and over. They are corrupt and devoid of ethics.

Pick a side.

Scumbags of the day

John Edwards cheated on his dying wife. Now (act surprised) he’s been caught again! C’mon, does anyone really believe it was a one-time thing? Yeah, right! When you see one cockroach, there’s 100 more you don’t see. Best of all, his wife is threatening to spill the beans on all the shady political secrets he has. Awesome. Looking forward to it…

David Letterman is an ass. He looks down his nose at all of us and criticizes everyone with traditional values from his glorified soap box. We all know he is a tyrant to work for. We all knew he was a dirty old man perv. But I never (yeah, right) would have guessed that he was also a cheater and a hypocrite.

Mark Ensign, disgraced Republican Senator from Nevada (I’d still take this scumbag over Reid) was caught laundering your tax dollars. It wasn’t enough just to get caught cheating on his wife. He had to give sweet deals to his mistress and her husband. Surprise! A crooked politician. They are almost all crooked and therefore almost all of them are vulnerable to being extorted and controlled. This is why we are losing control of our country.

Mark Sanford, Republican governor who decided it was no big deal to just leave the country and visit his mistress in Argentina. I’m sure we can all relate, right? Well, this once hope-of-the-party loser nut job has apparently decided that he doesn’t have to keep up the descent guy anymore. He’s full-on refusing to face the music as more and more allegations of impropriety are raised.

Whoopi Goldberg, I don’t know what “rape-rape” is, but you are a evil bastard for even suggesting that Polanski didn’t do anything wrong. Where do you people come from? Is this a giant ‘Punked’ or something? Wow. I just don’t know what else to say about this….

Robert Gibbs, Obama’s chief liar… uh, I mean, Press Secretary. I can hardly stand to look at this guy. He’s such a bad liar. You’d think they’d at least pick someone who could lie with a straight face.

Jimmy Carter, once again you make one of my lists. You deny what you said a few weeks ago when you called me and everyone else who opposes Obama for any legitimate reasons a racist. NEWSFLASH: we have video cameras and no matter what you say, it doesn’t make it so. PS – you could probably get away with playing the crazy-old-man card. Serenity Now!
