Giving in to cynicism

I don't know when I've been so dispirited. Our government appears to be as corrupt as the worst of any third world country. Evidence: Example One and Example Two.

Not even the death of Oral Roberts can cheer me up - that's pretty bad.

As the cynic I've devolved into, the perfectly obvious answer to this question is that our government is totally owned by the corporate interests that finance it. Period.

I don't know how we fix this, I really don't.

UPDATE: At times like this, you just have to get rude.

It's a bill, still in process. I'll wait to see what comes out of committee, myself. Though it's past time to take chairmanships away from Lieberman.

Past time indeed, Ruth!
