Money Corrupts

Posted Monday, September 19, 2011, at 8:23 AM

I have made the statement several times that money corrupts our political system, and OUR government is being bought by certain individuals and companies. This article, I think, says it all. I am outraged! Are you????

And as we get closer to the election there will be way to many political ads that we have to put up with. I'm sure there will be those that put the opponent down and will get nasty.

Hey Roy this is off topic but I'm a little curious did you know Bonnie before you started up your blogs on here? To me it seems like you know each other or maybe are related.....lol! Just curious nothing more :)

MsM, No I didn't know her before the blogs, I just like the way she writes.

Oh ok I thought I seen awhile back where you asked her if she had checked her email and I thought maybe she had put her email address in one of her blogs, but I looked and couldn't find it.. That's why I was thinking maybe you two knew each other.

I just watched Obama's speech about his debt plan..

MsM, you can send e-mail on her profile, same as many of us.

Learn something new each day. I didn't notice that. I don't think they used to have that or maybe I never paid any attention to what was there.

I would like to add a description to my profile and don't know how to do that either. lol !

Thanks Roy I appreciate you letting me know that about our profiles

I'm an almost 61 year old transplant from California 6 1/2 years ago. I work in road construction, those dastardly flaggers. My family roots go back to New England farms, not the big city. The last town I lived in when in California grew from 16K to 40K in 10 years, and that was enough to drive me out. I don't engage in or tolerate name calling. Name calling reduces an adult discussion to grade school play yard level. I have never served in the military, but have family members who have, dating back to WW1. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am neither extremely Liberal or Conservative. I am raising my 16 year old grandson, not what I expected at this age, and dealing with those issues as well as my health and near retirement which are 2 things I intend to talk about. I decided to try my hand at this thanks to the warm welcome I have received on Mike's blog. When I take a position, I will defend it until I am shown that I am mistaken, and when that happens, I apologize. There are other things about me that will come out over time I'm sure.
