Politicians have always had a bad reputation w/ the American people... They seem to be right up there with used car salesmen... maybe even prostitutes..

Well, as we can see.. those of us who watch news, that is.. they are not seen as slimeballs for no reason..

And this year seems to be the Year of the Slimeball

sigh...

anyway... There are some sincere folks in Congress.. I feel sorry for them.. having to deal with .. hypocrisy of the Left.. rinos... stupid legislation members are trying to pass..

anyway.. t he reason they are corrupt is that there is TOO MUCH $$$$$ to be made in govt.. and they are the ones who make the "laws" so... they tend to not make laws that work against themselves..

something needs to be done...

Try praying - 2 Timothy 2: 1 & 2: First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be offered for everyone for kings and all those in authority—so that we may lead tranquil and quiet lives in all godliness and dignity.…

Politicians are corrupt because the system has been set up for them to be corrupt. And voters have failed to hold the slimeballs accountable at the polling booth, by putting the same scoundrels back into office over and over again. However it may now be too late to fix anything. Why? Because the Supreme Court itself has now become corrupt, partisan, and political.

i could have written this post myself

and we suckers thought getting Barrett on the Court was SOOOO important...

3 Justices did, however, want to hear about the fraud in 2020

But 3 is not a majority so I guess... it's Sianara, America.. you were nice while u lasted.

and greed exists because people do not let Jesus purge themselves of their lust for money.. no, they just say to t hemselves.. Hm... lots of money to be made in this cesspool

I'm game

but there is this

"for what shall it profit a man to gain the whole world but lose his soul"
