We used to have lawyers as politicians...they at least were familiar with the Law...though they could be crooked as well as anybody..."Tricky Dick" Nixon comes to mind. Now we have business types...the new heroes, the ones who will grow us into prosperity...the magical CEO's of popular lore.
Their incentive is making as much for themselves as possible and paying you just enough to help them get rich...screw you, your kids and your health and pension. It's hard to steal legally at the very top...so you enter politics in order to change the rules people play by...and to do that you have to distract them...that's what Communism was for, and now Terrorists and Iraq.
The rules were quietly changed some years back so the thefts of today could be almost "legal". The boom went bust, everyone knew it would, and a few tokens are going to get squeezed a bit...just a bit...makes the franchise stronger.
They've got us distracted again so we can't see how the rules are being changed some more for the NEXT round. Laws and regulations are being gutted and changed...while we look to the skies for falling Arabs. How else would we tolerate this idiot of a president and this talk about Iraq and terror and what not?
Follow the money...here at home...it's what gave us Terrorists and 9/11 in the first place.
