in reply to Paid for crap

Hey, that might be my crap. :-) Seriously though, alot of things that go on in business and government don't make sense because of the way we are educated(brainwashed) to believe in the "truthfullness and righteousness" of our economic system. So when ignorance and corruption display themselves in the offices of the PHB's, we stand in disbelief, and mutter to ourselves " say it ain't so champ, say it ain't so".

But the reality of the world is doing favors, corruption, payoffs, and the "in-law" factor.

I often dream of a world where all leaders, whether government or private sector, are required to take a vow of poverty for life, so that they make desicions on merit, not on greed..... but I'm a dreamer.

    Many of them already vow to serve and uphold some principle or document or another, and that doesn't seem to make a difference. I'm not sure why I'd expect them to have integrity when it comes to poverty.

      I guess we would have to keep them all in jail :-)
