Where does one find decency - anymore?

Races for the Senate, U.S. House, etc. and other issues of national importance.

Where does one find decency - anymore?

Postby Mad Howler » Fri Apr 04, 2014 1:37 am

This story stirs dissatisfaction, I wish I could see past this.

I cannot, so I ask some questions that should be obvious...
One question is ... How do we get better treatment?
Not everyone gets massaged like a plutocrat, right?
If you think I am joking 'round,
Remember axp 70% of public dollars go to NSA subcontractors (i.e. - some kind of private outfit even less accountable than our own governance).
Is this responsible?
When will we see, clearly, how we have been had?
When do our brand of plutocrats realize that they cannot get the deal that oligarchs like Putin got?
Commoners of the former USSofR did not have dollars in the house & pocket.
We at this moment still have some.
Why do our empowered seek that we have less of this?

Good questions. I didn't know there was an executive director for intelligence community whistleblowing. I'm afraid D.C. is more corrupt than I can imagine.

At the individual level, many folks are decent in my opinion. Power tends to corrupt.

I agree. How do the less empowered learn to ask for and get what is reasonable?
