Aunty,
Tell you the truth, I am glad to learn I'se not the onliest one despairing about the loss of integrity and the greed epidemic.

It's big too, I wxpect every blogger that comes here to add to the list of examples. Not just here in USA but everywhere. You're so right, a nation which fails to treasure it's freedoms and "trust in God" pretty much is asking for the Devil to lead the way.

Last Friday I took my Nephew on the very silly UNDERGROUND TOUR in Seattle. No surprise to learn Seattle was founded by criminals and crooks .... and they became the leaders/politicians that shaped the city. So, to answer your question....YES I believe things have always have always been this bad.

"Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely"

Wait until November. I hope everyone is surprised.

Fishy,
well, yep--but mah real worry is that the thang is bigger than greed--always had that. I'se stunned at the open arrogance of the looters--nay, the attempt to INSTITUTIONALIZE looting.

Here's the thang: that bad deeds is done is bad enough--so we has police and FBI and who-all to nab the bad folks. trouble is now we has made policy an' law to codify--to say looting is OK, even a good thang, so that those once charged to protects us from the bad folks is not deputized BY the worst folks to nab US when we simply live as is right or fair.
