    It's one thing to follow the story as news and quite another to make it the only news.

    This one isn't.
    All the more reason to get back on Clinton's indiscretions.

    Power = connections = money... that's the core of a politician, everything they do is about managing other peoples stuff.

    They get rich doing it, and just being who they are. Even Bernie Sanders is rich. It just comes with the job, that's why people spend so much fucking money trying to get elected.

    And yet we can't do without them. All we can hope is that they use their power and connections to do something good for the country--and of course we can hold them criminally liable if they sell their office, which they don't have to do in order to use their power and connections for good.

    Not sure what we can do about their getting rich off their connections and knowledge after the fact, so long as they don't violate national security or lobby for a foreign government. (Doh...Bob Dole...forgot about him).

    By the way, the idea only Republicans are super rich is very 1980's TV sitcom mentality.

    It would work better if they stopped being rich, fuck ass, power brokers... and actually, create some jobs poor people could make use of... like small businesses do every day.

    There is a HUGE difference between talking about something to get Brownie Points, and actually effecting change in some way.

    You're complaining about inequality, then? What are the chances someone who inherited a shit ton of money isn't going to be a rich fuck ass power broker? I'm sure there are some, but seriously...

    If you make a bunch of money, chances are you're going to spend a good bit of effort teaching your kids how to keep it. And people with $10 million in assets don't start many small businesses; $8.4 million is the average household net worth among the top 1%.

    Buffet does BUY UP a lot of small businesses. A buddy of mine works as a machinist for a company that makes dental drills and the like--he now works for Berkshire Hathaway.
