    I heard on a radio show that most of the money paid out is going for payback for election support. They ran down the list and most were conected with the obama campaign one way or the other.
    I would say there is trueth to that because the money was supposed to help the mortgage crisis and much was supposed to be applied to payroll loans.

    We have once again put the fox in charge of the hen house.
    Its all quite easy to fix,,,but only a handful of people would be able to stomach it.

    The good hard working, god fearing Americans of this great country needs to get rid of the corrupt government we have been having for so long (Both republican and Democrat) and start from scratch with common people. Then and only then will things get better.

    JMO,

    Kevin
    Were you figuring on having a democracy or will we just leave it up to the "good hard working, god fearing Americans" to tell the rest of us what's best?

    Jeff,

    Remind me, whats a democracy? Its been quite some time since we have had that in this country. Its only going to get worse because people like you are to blind to see what you put in power.


    Cheers,

    How about we leave the God fearing out(seperation of church from state is a very good thing) and just require voters to pass a Civics Test and be a quailfied property owner in order to have the privlidge to vote? I'm all for starting over as I don't think we can rehabilitate those already in congress.

    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    How about a poll tax, too?

    And be a Christian? And be a Republican? What other criteria do you have for 'real Americans'?

    For the record, the 'good hard working, god fearing Americans of this great country' get a chance to ' get rid of the corrupt government we have been having for so long' every 2,4 and 6 years. The fact of the matter is that most people actually like their own representatives, but don't like those who represent other folks. Welcome to Democracy -- it means not always getting your way.

    (As for the 'fluent English' part, you flunked that one at 'we have been having'. No vote for you!)

    I'm still interested what Pete's 'easy' fix is. I have a feeling it is decidedly un-democratic.
