Sounds familiar, doesn't it? The names have changed, but they're singing the same "it's not fair!" tune.

It does sound familiar. A public body is trying to limit transparency because they feel it makes them look bad.

A huge difference, however, is that the Chair of the Commission actually stood up in January and requested the state investigate them for "fraud."

Never been able to logically see how exposing the wrongdoings is making them look bad, when it is the wrongdoing that is actually the bad.

Here's the skinny on Torrance County Corruption...

It looks like dirty contract deals with county government were getting too much attention from local activists and responsible public officials.

Sound familiar?

I find it quite funny that Savage Heathen thought he had a "good one" to show another group of malcontents. In reality, he simply pointed us to another community that is trying to face down corruption and certain official attempts to stop that face down by limiting transparency.

Thanks to Savage Heathen's usual lack of research before inserting foot, he's helped make a point that transparency is the bain of the corrupt.

All except the "responsible public officials" sounds familiar. We don't have one of those.

The horror of a citizen holding her government accountable.

I guess to those who prefer to sit on their fat arse and let it be someone else's problem (such as their children and grandchildren), it is much easier to be a good sheep and follow along than to be courageous, stand up and endure liars such as you.

I laughed a little inside when I saw this report originally aired on TV. All I could think is that the officials and 'videographers' in that town are rank amateurs and they don't hold a candle to dim-bulbs of TorC.

Then you didn't read and comprehend. The opposite of courageous would be cowardly.

the opposite of courageous is complacency. Its also being a sponge. For a city so far from an ocean...we sure have a lot of sponges here.

Wouldn't you agree that complacency would be in the middle, like: courageous, complacency, cowardly?

Though I do believe complacency is simply a sign of cowardice.
