Voting doesn't mean a darn thing in Amerika anymore, the trash elite is recycle every 4 and 6 years and they hold their power thanks to corporate money.

Well I am sure glad the SCOTUS keeps ruling on behalf of human beings, pretty soon they will be able to repossess organs!

Yes, we have all become women who need to be protected by the men. Like that one thread about "women and children first." Only, all of the men are now either women, or they died protecting the women and children, so there aren't any men left to protect anyone anymore. It is a grim future for us all.

Sounds like bribery to me - throw all those involved in jail.

I was about to take issue with this post, but then I saw the username posting it and thought 'Fair enough'. At least it does what it says on the label.

There is now confirmed cases where the same houses were promised as collateral multiple times in different MBS packages. There has even been reports of fraudulent second mortgages created and sold.

Indeed. We talk about an economic crisis without calling it scandal, unlike back in the 1980s, when we called it the Savings and Loan Scandal

And back then, another Arizona politician displayed "poor judgment".

Lincoln Savings and Loan The Lincoln Savings led to the Keating five political scandal, in which five U.S. senators were implicated in an influence-peddling scheme. It was named for Charles Keating, who headed Lincoln Savings and made $300,000 as political contributions to them in the 1980s. Three of those senators—Alan Cranston (D-CA), Don Riegle (D-MI), and Dennis DeConcini (D-AZ)—found their political careers cut short as a result. Two others—John Glenn (D-OH) and John McCain (R-AZ)—were rebuked by the Senate Ethics Committee for exercising "poor judgment" for intervening with the federal regulators on behalf of Keating.[15]


This nation has a horrific corruption problem. Lowering taxes, talking about the Constitution, and rediscovering God and a Christian Heritage won't do a damn thing to make the country better. Citizens need to come together to root out corruption, prosecute and put white collar criminals in jail, and then maybe we have a chance to save America.

Corruption on all sides of the aisle have killed America. It is on life support. only complete overthrow of the present system will fix it. Our mode of "democracy" ensures no democracy. We need a very different system.

It saddens me to see how quickly people try to turn this into a partisan issue, with all of the "if she was a democrat" non-sense. Don't you see that it is this kind of thinking (ignorance) that allows these politicians to get away with a lot of what they do? If she was a democrat, she would still be corrupt, period.

Believe it or not, the Republicans and Democrats are only two different sides to the same coin. They are all statists on a mission to divide. Like I've said a million times, both major parties only have superficial differences, differences on issues that are relatively unimportant, though emotional. This fools us into believing that there is at least some kind of oposition, when there is no organized opposition in this country.

Both the Democratic and Republican parties champion the elite, corporations and special interests, at the expense of the American people. As long as we continue to fall for their partisan illusion, this country will continue to decay and the elite will continue to benefit at the expense of the republic - you, me and the rest of the non-elite citizenry.

Corruption isn't a partisan issue.

I didn't read the article, due to the fact that I might trigger into a partisan response...I don't know if its R or D...simply put, if the person did something corrupt, they need to deal with Bubba for a few years..

Corruption is to be treated as a bipartisan smackfest in my it your hero, or your nemesis

True. And of The Keating Five, 4 were Democrats.

What sticks in the craw, however, is that for three decades American voters have been subjected to the "holier (literally) than thou Democrat" image put out by the GOP. Vote for the GOP candidate because s/he is a Christian, implying beyond corruption.

A crook is a crook, a skunk is a skunk, no matter what stripe. I came to believe that politicians became less and less willing to cry Foul! on a fellow politician from the opposing party, because that would then air everyone's dirty laundry.

The dirty little secret is that corruption grew and took hold, regardless of protestations of patriotism or piety. Corrupting influences threaten this nation's survival. And those corrupting influences show no loyalty to a particular political side.
