Could have given this one a thumbs down because of the application and how its made ignorant slaves out of a once freedom loving sovereigns.

    I never liked de Gaulle much but he was sure right about this.

    and he was some think the epitome of this rapping himself in the French flag and posturing as if to say "I am France"! It is normal to promote those who serve as leaders. If you cannot serve and take orders then you should not be elevated to lead and give them.
     -- Waffler, Smith     
    They live like royalty in the Congress and then have the audacity to call themselves "public servants". What a joke. November is trash removal time.

    The two words that provide this statement with five stars are "poses" and "almost" without them it would be a thumbs down. For it is the duty of all politicians to be the servant of the people.
     -- Anonymous     
    Correction: delete the word almost and apply to the next statement.

    They pose that way because that is how the real heros of life do it too. So it becomes a matter of trying to figure out intentions.

    Seems a few on this list are having trouble accepting this fact... well-trained you are in justifying your debilitated state.

    "November is trash removal time." Only to be replaced with a whole new pile of trash. The garbage trucks are lined up to fill the dump that is DC.
     -- Nick     
    When you listen to the Democrat's own representatives in their own Town Hall meetings you can see their arrogance, and you can hear the disgust in their voice when they answer their constituents. They pose as servents to get elected, then act like they are royalty when the get to DC. They're royal okay, royal pains in the a***.
