Athony Weiner sent pictures to another consenting adult, and resigned from office when it became public. Mark Sanford ran off to another country to have a tryst with a consenting adult, and resigned when it became public. SC votes have decided to return Mark Sanford to public service, even after he trespassed in his ex-wife's home.
Regardless of what cases a US Attorney is working on, are you suggesting that they cannot separate their personal and professional lives. Or perhaps you are suggesting that there is only a certain type of person that can investigate Fox News.
And how is the importance of either of these issues any less than any other issue discussion in this forum.
You guys try very hard, I'll grant you that.

Sanford is all kinds of idiot. Weiner also.
Could we have some ethics and morals in our elected government? Does anyone care? We pay them, they work for us. The children of this country are watching.

You only care if it's your guy. I hold them all accountable.

@ Conservatives.
After posting in this thread for months, itís obvious the gap between Conservatives and Liberals is so huge it will never be bridged. We here on topix are just a micronism of what we see on the national level and in our elected officials.
I have also found by being involved on topix, I have become more or less obsessive/compulsive in posting so I have decided to take a hiatus from topix for the moral good of my soul. When one becomes so absorbed in politics where it affects oneís moral compass, the effort is not worth it. My life does NOT revolve around politics; I just get sucked into it occasionally.
I have great faith in conservative principles as they have stood the test of time, not so the liberal principles.
Iím giving a top ten list of conservative principles along with a top ten list of liberal principles.
And finally Iím giving a top ten list of philosophical principles.
Maybe some of you can discern some similarity in these principles, maybe not.
Conservative principles::
Web link:
http://www.kirkcenter.org/index.php/detail/te...
First, the conservative believes that there exists an enduring moral order.
Second, the conservative adheres to custom, convention, and continuity.
Third, conservatives believe in what may be called the principle of prescription.
Fourth, conservatives are guided by their principle of prudence.
Fifth, conservatives pay attention to the principle of variety.
Sixth, conservatives are chastened by their principle of imperfectability.
Seventh, conservatives are persuaded that freedom and property are closely linked.
Eighth, conservatives uphold voluntary community, quite as they oppose involuntary collectivism.
Ninth, the conservative perceives the need for prudent restraints upon power and upon human passions.
Tenth, the thinking conservative understands that permanence and change must be recognized and reconciled in a vigorous society.
Liberal principles, note some of these principles have changed to day due to socialist influence::
Web link;;
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/geoffrey-r-ston...
1. Liberals believe individuals should doubt their own truths and consider fairly and open-mindedly the truths of others.
2. Liberals believe individuals should be tolerant and respectful of difference.
3. Liberals believe individuals have both a right and a responsibility to participate in public debate.
4. Liberals believe "we the people" are the governors and not the subjects of government, and that government must treat each person with that in mind.
5. Liberals believe government must respect and affirmatively safeguard the liberty, equality and dignity of each individual.
6. Liberals believe government has a fundamental responsibility to help those who are less fortunate.
7. Liberals believe government should never act on the basis of sectarian faith.
8. Liberals believe courts have a special responsibility to protect individual liberties.
9. Liberals believe government must protect the safety and security of the people, for without such protection liberalism is impossible.
10. Liberals believe government must protect the safety and security of the people, without unnecessarily sacrificing constitutional values.
Philosophical principles::
Web link;;
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/moslive/artic...
1. THE HARM PRINCIPLE
2. THE PRINCIPLE OF SUFFICIENT REASON
3. THE MEAN
4. THE FALSIFICATION PRINCIPLE
5. OUGHT IMPLIES CAN
6. THE PRINCIPLE OF EVIDENCE
7. THE PRINCIPLE OF CHARITY
8. THE DIFFERENCE PRINCIPLE
9. JUST WAR
10. OCCAM'S RAZOR
To the conservatives on topix, stand fast and live by your principles.
To the liberals, good riddance.
I totally agree with Aggie. We all get tired of slamming our heads against a wall. Don't stay away for long. As BillinDville said, check your private messages under your registered name. You'll be hearing from me.

Perhaps part of the problem is the self-defined glorious light that shines brightest on the self-deluded, as exemplified by the First, Nineth, and Tenth Order of Conservative Wisdom.
Then the Second Order of Conservative Wisdom calls for...
continuity
- The unbroken and consistent existence or operation of something over a period of time.
- A state of stability and the absence of disruption.
Which, naturally, is exemplified by the Fifth Order of Conservative Wisdom...
variety
- The quality or state of being different or diverse; the absence of uniformity, sameness, or monotony.
- A number or range of things of the same general class that are different or distinct in character or quality.
Now the Sixth Order of Conservative Wisdom claims the superiority of mediocrity, yet they revere the liberals who fashioned...
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
And of course the Seventh Order of Conservative Wisdom is not shared by Liberals, except for the Liberals who founded this country.
With the Eighth Order of Conservative Wisdom collectivism is seen as purely a Liberal trait, which is true as the Founding Fathers clearly stated in the Preamble to the US Constitution, the people consent to collectively act thru government to resolve issues, promote the general welfare, and protect liberties and property.
Perhaps it would be best if Bored did retire from posting here, and concentrate his efforts on like-minded forums that will relieve his excessive-compulsive disorder.
Glad to see that Bored gets under your skin.

Thankfully,
Bush politicized the Office of Attorney General and the Judicial Branch line never before by demanding applicants for judicial appointments reveal their personal beliefs on religions, abortion rights, and a plethora of other matters previously held to be "off limits"
Then to compound the damage to our country he appointed an extraordinary percentage from that famous, well-respected, highly distinguished,
(sarcasm intended)
law school,
Jerry Falwell .... er.... Liberty University.
Imagine, your future as a litigant, and the future of our country, dictated by a prosecutor unable to gain admission to a better school, or worse, so personally Right Wing, that he/she attended Jerry Falwell U.
Of course, upon taking office - Obama, that wild- eyed socialist did nothing to repair the damage. He wanted to "move forward".
Obama hasn't done anything about anything. He's a constant campaigner. Keeps his minions mind off the fact that he's done nothing.

While it is true that "we all pay them", in reality they are only accountable to their constituents. Course the level of ethical and moral behavior expected from any elected official will vary from voter to voter. Do you think that Wiener's ethics and behavior were resoundingly denounced by the same voters that elected Sanford.

<quoted text>Please, oh please, explain to us all how the playing field is level when:

in this corner -
Jim,
a 52 year old maintenance man,
with three kids and a wife,
making $38,627.00 a year,

vs.

in this corner -
Exxon Mobil,
valued at $512,000,000,000.00,
with an annual profit of $46,000,000,000.00,
a profit ration of 25%,
on revenue well over $1,000,000,000,000.00
and 82,000 employees.

Please, explain to us all how night shuft maintenance employee Jim will bring Exxon Mobil to its knees.

Tell us how the CEO,
who just received a 20% raise,
making $25,000,000.00 a year,
leaves one of the six corporate jets assigned to his office,
to engage in negotiations with Jim, after Jim finishes his shift.

First maybe you can explain why, absent a union, Jim isn't just fired and replaces by Bob, a 19 year old kid who'll do Jim's job for minimum wage.

Wait.. Maybe you first out to explain why, absent unions, Bob is entitled to a minimum wage.

Could it be the natural desire of companies to "share the profits generously with their employees?

No, that can't be it. That record is crystal clear.
Employee and profits are both higher than ever in history, and the wages paid employees have consistently fallen in real dollars.
Labor is a commodity, employers buy as cheap as they can to increase profit- that's their job.

Well - let's await the answer - This ought to be good.
Did I miss the answer ?
Oh my

Unfortunately not. Shame isn't it?

Many people will still vote R or D, period. Right now, I'm totally pissed off at Issa, who is holding these IRS hearings. What he did today has lessened my trust in him.
Stamped in steel my mistrust of Lerner and the entire IRS, but Issa didn't do his job.

We the people will ever be screwed. Until we stand together.

Thanks Synergy. Hey, when you private message Bored, tell him I too want him or her to come back when he or she is refreshed. I totally understand his predicament. Or hers.

It's why I take weekends off from all politics. I gotta or I'll go crazy.
(This is where some will come in and accuse me of being crazy all the time)

You know what is disgusting about you loonie liberals? The fact that you just blow off what the IRS has done. I'm not a member of the Tea Party group, but what has happened is an absolute abuse of power. Do you not understand that???? What if it were happening to left wing groups? Do you not understand that what the IRS has done is horrendous?????? Are you not capable of taking the politics out of it and see the implication? Your party could be next!!! WAKE UP.
Loonie liberals? Most non-republicans are not liberals and they are'nt to worried. Most republicans have a martyr complex (everyone is after them). A bad mistake was done and there have been some fired,Nuf said! Get over it and move on!The majority of we voters are not going to demand Obama to step down. So dream on, it's you republicans nerves that are breaking down not the rest of us. bush/cheney should have been convicted and put to sleep by now and their demonic behavior is so far worst then Obama could ever do!

You will especially be mad at us when we come to towns like your all over this country and demand by presidential order the confiscation of all your assets. We will take your homes,bank accounts, personal property including gold wedding rings. Then we will sell it all and spred the wealth to those less fornuate.

Happy to see you are finally considering the possibility. There may be hope for you, yet.
