Especially true for politicians, (most) lawyers and the lowest of the low...tax collectors.
 -- J Carlton, Calgary     
    I'm not sure how to rate this, 5 stars for accuracy or a thumbs down for the devastating application and effect it has had on humanity. - probably with Carlton
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    I agree with J and Mike.

    As sarcastic as it may have been said, unfortunately true for politicians and the general populace. While there are respectable people in this world who know what they stand for and take a stand, in my experience we are in the minority. ;-)
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    Loose your principals, loose your integrity. J, Mike and Jim, I agree. Archer you are right on point ! The words of " founding principals " are making an impact. Many are getting the message in association with our Constitution.
