Chris in Portland Tech: STOP CENSORSHIP (81* d) RE: Tech: STOP CENSORSHIP 21 Nov 11


The biggest gaming operation in the US is now run by Congress, followed by the President. One example: Bad bills get introduced so that Congressional crooks can collect campaign contributions and then "kill" the bill that would not have passed anyway. The President now has so many ways to "help friends," (grants, rules, diplomatic posts, state dinners, etc.) that the Presidency is a profit center, even though the country is in the red. I agree with Madison and Jefferson - since government is so easily corrupted, the smaller government the better. I have worked in corporations, and I believe the biggest risk of loss comes from crooked employees. With government, there is very little incentive to weed out crooks. Whistle blowers are not welcome. Here endeth the Lesson.
