  • I have to say, I hate the way these things are done, I only wish the media were better about informing in instances like this. It comes that we are not able to trust our legislative representatives (were we ever really?), but somehow the media who more or less guides our public attention does not seem to be effective when it comes to legislative matters, which allows our legislators to be guided by greed with only the threat of an investigation by an over worked government as a prohibitor.

    sigh.
