"You see, in Washington they have these bodies, Senate and the House of Representatives. That is for the convenience of the visitors. If there is nothing funny happening in one, there is sure to be in the other, and in case one body passes a good bill, why, the other can see it in time and kill it."

Will Rogers
(1879-1935) American humorist

    It doesn't matter what you call it when you have greed and corruption driving the process. I am writing a book on Ethics so any help you can provide will be much appreciated. I think this is a good blog for this request. I know we differ in our views and opinions but I believe your hearts are in the right place and in the end that's what matters. My reason is simple - just look around you and there is your answer. please pass on your positive contribution (no negative stuff) to robken16@gmail.com Thank you...Robert
