Of decency and ethics...

Am I alone in the feeling of disgust when I see politicians get caught red-handed and they don't have the decency to fess up and take punishment?Seems like we keep lowering the standards and the trash keeps piling up around us. I for one am glad that I will not live long enuff to see just how bad it is going to get. Thanks for letting me rant.

I don't vote for ethical people unless they happen to agree with me on the issues. I had this argument with a friend of mine. She votes for the most honest guy. But the most honest guy is going to vote yay or nay on some pretty hard choices. Whichever way he votes will be bad for somebody. I want it to be bad for the other guy, and not for me. And that's how I choose my politicians, selfishly. Of course, if he gets caught robbing the till, I'll want him to pay the money back. And then I'll decide if someone else can do the job as well or better.

the sherrif in our county embezzled 200,000+ dollars from the state and county, he spent 30 days in jail, he has to pay back the money in small payments no interest.

No Clipper, you're definately not alone. They do it to us because we let them. I'd be in favor of a national watchdog group, which is non political, to keep tabs on them. The only problem with that is, we have to have another groug to keep tabs on the first, and on, and on.

While we're on the subject, Have you ever imagined what motivates campaign workers to cheer and applaud the likes of a Kerry or for that matter, any other politican? I didn't get that excited when I was 16, and Miss Dixie B. and I went skinny dipping down at the old swimming hole. ........Gfp

are those 2 words still in the american language?

The are so seldom used, they might as well not exist. I know for a fact that they have been struck from Politican's dictionary. That happened right about the time Harry Truman left office. ...gfp

Yes, sir, and Memphis politics would simply amaze you. They keep electing the same arrogant crook for mayor. (He knows some big words.) He's been having a feud with the city council for the last several months. Better'n going to the zoo. Glad I live 50 miles north of the big city.
