Oh ya

Ajd it is called Bread and Circuses. It has been used for centuries and sadly with a uneducated population it still works.

While for the first time I fully agree with something Brian has said, I want to add that the glaring subversion of any semblance of legal recompense for crimes committed(see el loco- -twice) all leads to general lawlessness in the community. With the economy in tatters, the Deputies are voting themselves increases in their own per diems, while they continue to do NOTHING for the electorate that put them there. Of course there are always the turkeys and hams soon coming to elicit continued support. The people need to see past those trivialities and vote in men and women who truly want to improve the country and not just their own pockets. Sadly corruption has been endemic here for so long, I fear the electorate would not know how to recognize or appreciate a truly righteous civil servant.

Billions of people across the world have had enough of all of these criminals murdering their families, friends and children. The extreme lawlessness globally naturally is going to bring much more assassination's until law enforcement does what is should have done almost 2 years ago, arrest these criminals, prosecute them and execute them for violations of international laws and domestic laws. Law enforcement must act to bring order against the criminals that have ravaged humanity and declared a genocidal needle war against its citizens!
