Journal: Yes, the government responds no matter who is in charge 1

Journal by fustakrakich

It seems that no matter how corrupt the authorities may be, when people act, the bureaucrats listen... eventually. Could be a pacification move, but hey, it gets results. So, for example, when somebody tries to tell me that Romany would respond any differently to bad press over over civil forfeiture than Obama's crew, I can comfortably know they're entirely off base. This is why we can safely put anybody into office, even Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz if that is what the crazies want. Apparently though I'm not supposed to say it. Maybe the internet is working after all, bit by bit the facade flakes off.

Just when you thought you were out... they pull you back in.

The higher I go, the crookeder it becomes.

Never hate your enemies. It affects your judgment.

When they come... they come at what you love.

Finance is a gun. Politics is knowing when to pull the trigger.

It's dangerous to be an honest man.

I have a stone in my shoe.... A two-bit punk who works for me.

It's not personal. It's business.

Treachery is everywhere.

Nice party.
Oh, you like it?
Yeah, I had to sneak in.

your business is your business. I have no interest, no percentages. I'm out.

Your sins are terrible. It is just that you suffer. Your life could be redeemed, but I know you don't believe that. You will not change.

It never ends....
