    If that's actually true then the rules are so vague as to be unenforceable and aren't worth the paper they are written on.

    That's because Americans don't care anymore.

    Some do, but not, as of yet, enough. By the way it was that very we'll do as we damn well please attitude that sparked the Gingrich revolution in '94.

    Caring when there is nothing one can do to fix anything brings great frustration. Buy a drink or smoke a joint and a bigscreen TV and practice denial.

    Self-fulfilling prophecy. The only reason people can't change it is because they won't do anything en masse to change it because they don't think they can...

    Americans have nobody to blame for their problems but themselves.

    Which is exactly why we elect someone else. We can blame them. and I'm beginning to think that most Americans really can't take care of themselves in the fashion that they would like to be.

    House Banking Scandal: Newt Bounced 22 Checks

    Remember the House Banking scandal, where so many congressmen wrote rubber checks on government money? Newt hopes you don't, because he bounced 22 himself, which almost cost him reelection in 1992. His vote for the secret House pay raise, and the chauffeur who drove him around Washington in a Lincoln Town Car, didn't help.

    Here's a newsflash: Gingrich isn't in office anymore. And thank God for that. That POS couldn't be voted dogcatcher anymore.

    Dodd and Kent are still in office. And getting free passes for their sweetheart deals.
