Well, I couldn't agree more !!!! Now, what remains is to get those IDIOT POLITICIANS to adopt/adhere to your thoughts.
Now, thinking a bit more, I think we should allocate a "chunk of that shale gas" to a "campaign fund" for all of those suckers and "outlaw" direct contributions of any kind, and "outlaw lobbying" in it's present form (money) and if a Company/Interested group wants to communicate their thoughts/interests to a politician they should have to use the same vehicles that you and I have to use.
My understanding is that there were 6 lobbyists in Washington for every Senator/Congressman during the "Obama care" legislative process. No wonder medical treatments cost so much !!!!
I'm betting that Wayne will agree with what you posted as well !!!!
