Comments on: All of Washington lives in Newt’s swamp http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2011/11/21/all-of-washington-lives-in-newts-swamp/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: JMouse http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2011/11/21/all-of-washington-lives-in-newts-swamp/#comment-44077 Sat, 12 May 2012 17:11:26 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=11094#comment-44077 Indeed Mr. Abramhoff,

Always a treat to hear about the reformed crook who raped the public for years… If you had a lick of sincerity, you’d be forming a massive enterprise to expose the most pivotal politicians, bringing compelling pressure to bear on them, introducing criminal and civil litigation, and expunging them from power. So where are your balls, pussy cat? Jerry H. Nissen

We love it. We might have to fabricate some credible-sounding story about Jack and Mike Milken co-investing with Raj Rajaratnam to fund the Occupy Wall Street freaks, take back the halls of power, and occupy their own proper places in history.

We’ve already done a little on Milken: www.WeWereWallStreet.com/Drexel-Don’t-Di e-Olympus-Don’t-Lie.html.

Jack might want to see Henry Blodgett’s bio on Business Insider – a very stand-up way to put it all out there.

Easy for someone like Ross Perot who had a ton of money to begin with. No one can ever accuse him of accepting money for political influence – he does not need the money anyway. Unfortunately politics has become a money game. The only thing you can do is to choose someone who you think will hopefully make wise decisions as president. Gingrich is extremely well read and is a great speaker. Would he make wise decisions? He is smart and he would speak his mind, but I think he would also be pragmatic. Not a bad choice in my view.

Hussein to remain in office? Newt Gingrich is the most qualified – Period.

Its that simple. Part of the problem is that we, the American people have been conditioned to hold our nose and press the button inside the ballot box. We have been told its ok to pick the lesser of the two evils. I am beyond that point now. I refuse to compromise. Every candidate has their strengths and weaknesses but we have to vet these guys. Our plum line needs to be who has the most Constitution and the least amount of baggage. Newt fails big time.

The Congress has been deaf and dumb for years but we never knew the workings that went on behind the closed doors. Now we do know and the same old BS is not working anymore. We now have a government that’s so top heavy we are unable to pay the critters any more and to make matters worse more and more government jobs are being added to the pie. We are broke and now 15 trillion dollars in debt yet the administration seems to think otherwise. They know what the problem is but 2012 is an election year and both parties are terrified with the answer. This coming year will be a blast of promises and lies that goes beyond anything we have heard before.

Now it’s 2M??….and over an 8 year period?? Do the math A$$!! Newt’s business had 3 offices with 50 people working for him durning that period. Oh…where is that said in this article…NOT! Seems that Newt is a good Capitalist(OH..not that word)and “created jobs”. People….wake up….the MSM will let you know who the left fear the most….so keep it up Abramoff…we know who you fear that can beat Obummer in the election…Love it!!!

Now that corporations are people too, with free speech rights (though they cannot vote or be put in jail) and they can influence elections anonymously, freedom and democracy for the people are no more!

With government pensions in hand, the ex lawmakers who now conduct business from K Street were also likely (we now learn) to have been actively involved with insider trading based on sensitive information they were privy to while in office. We now know that many still in office are doing the same thing. I know, I know, it’s apparently legal — but can anyone dispute that it’s highly immoral? I’ve had enough! It’s time to boot the whole bunch out and replace them with folks whose first priority will be to address the lucrative abuses of privileged information. Recall elections for senators are also in order.

For you and me, such activities are illegal, just congress has exempted themselves from the laws that apply to us. I have never been so disgusted with politics as now, both parties need to be totally voted out and we need to start over somehow. I hope our congress is paying attention to the tea party and now the OWS people. These are early signs of the displeasure of the populace. Can an American spring be so far off?
