Pure Greed

If only the Republicans could have only been just a little less greedy, they could have had it all for many years to come. When they gained control of the Congress after 40 years on the outs, Newt Gingrich set up a lock tight control never before seen. He rewrote lots of the traditional rules and practices in the running of Congress. A few leading Republicans controlled all committees so that little could come to a vote without their approval. Democrats could barely propose an amendment to an all Republican law. A few leaders passed out K Street lobbyist's money to the peons based on their loyalty to the Repub agenda.

Now the upcoming elections seem more than a bit scary to Republicans. They should realize that whenever the Dems outnumber them (and it will happen at some point) all their rules will work against them. They are working double time to make it appear that William Jefferson's corruption is just like all their theft. Hardly, I still think the Republicans epitomize the "culture of corruption." Their ethics violations out number ours - Mr. Jefferson.

You know Jim I remember when they preached (Republican Party) on being conservative, budget crunching, cut out government waste and pork, really get spending under control. Ha,,but you know Jim what is really scary? 30 some percent of Americans are blinded to the truth, it is like living in la la land. All of the scandals are rocking us to the core and did you see them come to the aid of the Democrats? Ole Gonzales threatened to resign, and how about Bush? Well he wants the cases against the NSA thrown out of court, and it will happen because he said it. I remember a time when the deficit mattered, but now it don't. Do you believe at some point this whole mess will collaspe???
