Goddammit...Public Finance Reform...

Everybody 'picks' their comfortable political party.



Can we ALL agree that over the last year, our intellects and factual evidences have led us to SEE and UNDERSTAND, that the goddamned problem with the Bank Bailout and the Big Insurance Industry and health care debacle and the BP Oil problems are ALL because our Congress is far more BOUGHT than that poor, naive Mark Twain ever thought possible?

It's time to put pressure on our Congress people to EXPLAIN why the F**k they keep complaining about "all of the corrupting money in Congress"...and yet...never do a damn thing about it!

Do they think we're all stupid? (YES...unfortunately...they think we are.)

In one WEEK they could ALL agree on public financing of campaigns.

WHY do they NOT do it?

Because, IF they did, all of those WEALTHY, WONDERFUL, PRIVATE BUSINESS people would QUIT offering money and FUTURE 'perks.'

So ..., sadly, our congress keeps trying to hold their jobs, 'split the difference' between voters and the monied interests and HANG ON TO THEIR SMALL BUSINESS FRANCHISES in Congress.
