The Editor: Do you have a good quote, LL ?
Stupid Cat: I sure do, the above quote has been changed by the American common folk. NO ONE EVER LOST MONEY UNDER ESTIMATING THE STUPIDITY OF THE AMERICAN VOTER.
It certainly applies to American Politicians. The money they get usually comes from lobbyist, and favors they did for businesses. Usually the big stuff comes from speeches after leaving office. Short timers like Obama allegedly get their money for books and speeches.
TE: Where do LIFERS get their piece of the pie, SC ? Do you have an example of one still in office ?
Jiffy Lube Cat: They get it from the same people/businesses, but over 20-50 years of service and grants/contracts to family members and friends it adds up. They get millions for being on the boards of directors of companies, and cheap bank loans. If Nancy Pelosi weren’t so honest she could be an example.
Here is an ole girl that just can’t let go of the taxpayer.
