Reminds me of visiting Key West, Florida and going out on a diving boat. All those dead, white coral heads. Thank pollution, treasure hunters for it. Yeah, Humans - the animal that fouls its nest for fun and profit.
actually most of that reef is dead because of the overuse by tourists who have no idea why they shouldn't stand and kick the reefs. There are live reefs around there but not that any of the tourist boats will take tourists to. even the ones that aren't totally bleached still have problems, but the tourist trap ones are totally destroyed.
you don't get to be where those people are without skeletons in the closet. If you have skeletons in the closet someone else has leverage on you. if someone else has leverage on you, first it's do one small bad thing and then its do more bad things or I'll tell about the first ones.
Thus, You don't get to be a politician without being corrupt.
I like Ron Paul. But he is a LIAR.
Simply because Politicians = LIAR.
If in any problem you find yourself doing an immense amount of work, the answer can be obtained by simple inspection.
