    I don't know the reason so maybe the rest of you can explain the following:
    Ten most corrupt contain 8 Democrats.. why?
    Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today released its 2010 list of Washington's
    “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians.”
    The list, in alphabetical order, includes:
    Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA),
    Rahm Emanuel, Former Obama White House Chief of Staff,
    Senator John Ensign (R-NV),
    Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA),
    Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-IL),
    President Barack Obama,
    Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA),
    Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY),
    Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY), and
    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA).

    I think your calculations are a bit off.

    There are 10 names on the list.
    8 names are associated with Democrat party. 8/10 equals 80%

    Where is there a miscalculation?

    After all most of POLLS are usually made up of more Democrats the GOP and in this case with 80% of the 10 being Democrats it seems a safe assumption!
    In the U.S. 11.9% of the U.S. in 2010 were union members...
    BUT
    the NYT/CBS poll responders - 20% union members (2 times more)!

    In the U.S. 6.3% are unionized public workers

    But NYT/CBS poll responders -25% were public workers (4 times larger)..BIASED??

    Public Policy Polling

    Overall, 91% of speech watchers approve of the proposals the President made in his speech.Just 9% disapprove – typical of the high support a president generally receives among thosewho choose to watch the State of the Union.
    Last year, 83% of viewers approved of PresidentObama’s plans at the time.
    CBS News State of the Union Poll - CBS News

    The above CBS poll of 659 people.

    44% or 290 were Democrats almost 43% more Democrats asked the GOP!
    31% or 204 were Independent
    25% or 165 were GOP

    The miscalculation comes when you try to extrapolate that to mean that 80% of Democrats are corrupt instead of that 80% of the most corrupt list are Democrats.

    Words mean something.

    Besides, im sure the number is much higher in reality.

    Well, maybe it is because they don't give a shit about the rule of law? They hate everything about this country and wish to change it...Just listen to a lefties and you will come to this conclusion.

    You wrote" Words mean something. "
    YES THEY DO! Thank you! So words DO mean something right?
    I want you to agree with me that "words mean something" and then tell me how we can have a President who said:
    1)"troops are air-raiding villages and killing civilians," words have meaning to the terrorists also!!!
    2) "So, if somebody wants to build a coal[electric utility] plant, they can it’s just that it will bankrupt them,!"
    3) “w“I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program.”[/U][/I]
    pnhp.org/news/2008/june/barack_obama_on_sing.php -e

    Words have meaning right? If Obama favors "single payer" what happens to the 1,400 private insurance companies? Won't exist if there is a single payer i.e. Obama!

    Their ethos is derived from situational ethics and pure, emotional reckoning.
