was going to say
the fact they made them selves exempt is pretty damning and all the back room kick backs to get the R votes...
then you have stuff like the FCC where EVER top level person has gone to work for some telacom after leaving
the latest being the worst where the head of the FCC after approving the NBC/Comcast merger then went to work FOR Comcast...

Because it is what we deserve. let's be honest, we as a country do not deserve any better. We certainly need better ... much better ... but what have we done to deserve it?

We constantly use our right to vote, to vote for more share of someone else's "pie" ...that's who we are.

Hardly. The Enron workers all lost heavily. The managers all sold their stock before they crashed their employees' stock.

You certainly have an interesting spin on events.

The funny thing is, these same boneheads fled their former homes in favor of job opportunity and low taxes. Now, with their political leanings, they will eventually be right back where they started.

I wish you'd stop lumping me in with those people. I realize were all supposed to be in this together, but let's be honest, we haven't been together for a long time.

Beats these people:

Jack Andrews and his wife no longer enjoy what they call date night, their once-a-month outing to the movies and a steak dinner at Logan’s Roadhouse in Augusta, Ga. In Harlem, Eddie Phillips’s life insurance payment will have to wait a few more weeks. And Jessica Price is buying cheaper food near her home in Orlando, Fla., even though she worries it may not be as healthy.

Like millions of other Americans, they are feeling the bite from the sharp increase in payroll taxes that took effect at the beginning of January. There are growing signs that the broader economy is suffering, too.

Chain-store sales have weakened over the course of the month. And two surveys released last week suggested that consumer confidence was eroding, especially among lower-income Americans.
