I suppose somewhere along the line most politicians may start off with the best of intentions and as time goes by they either get sucked into the high of greed & power, follow bad advice from the wrong people, or succumb to mental illness and they aging process. Maybe even a combination of all three.
If its supposed to be "....of the people, by the people and for the people" I guess sometimes the collective 'people' need to make their voice heard.
They become multi millionaires on a job that doesn't pay that much:)

Good morning, Franko ... How are you today? Hope you are well ... Okie dokie over on this side of Texas, lol ... The other worker gave a reason for leaving as "personal reasons" ... she was working "too many hours" in order to qualify for "free medical care" ... The company she's working for does not provide health benefits ... so she has to reduce her hours of working in order to reduce her income to qualify for "free medical care" ... you know, the type the taxpayers pay for? Yep, that kind!!!!! Do Not Get Me Started!... So, I've not seen her since ... I suppose that is her story and she's sticking to it, lol ...
Wishing you a beautiful day, Franko ... Enjoy it! FC <3 ...
some people just go looking for every loophole eh?

Guess what number came up???
7777 .. try ta beat that!!!

Tony's right about the poll tax but actually if done properly was a fair tax as everyone contributed,but it wasn't an individual tax in the end as you were liable for your spouse and other bit and bobs in it wasn't right.As for the likes of Blair and that thing he's married to,I just hope what go's round comes round.As for parliament now,I detest all politicians and couldn't careless if another Guy Fawlks came along,the only thing in my opinion this country has got to look up to is her most Britanic Majesty.
somehow I feel that modern royalty has become too much of a figurehead .. to be honest, I thik the King or Queen of a country should show much more leadership/initiative. Dianna actually set a good tone with her charity work. But it could do much further than that.

<quoted text>i can see where your coming from just thought in principle the poll tax was a fair tax,but as you know all political parties like buggering up things that have always worked well to start with.
there are pros and cons to everything ...

In a democracy, in theory only laws that make sense get passed ... but in order to get passed, sometimes the ideal has to be adjusted (bastardized?) to suit various opponents who will only then agree to pass it.

<quoted text>Obama is a great politician and a miserable president. He is know for voting present so he is never on the wrong side of an issue. When Bengazi was under attack he told Peneta do do what he had to do and then there was no more contact at all even though the attack lasted 7 hours. Then for 2 weeks he lied to the American people and said it was a spontaneous demonstration over a you tube film. He lied till well after the election. When he was a Senator he said Bush had spent 4 trillion dollars over 8 years. He called it un American and in 4 years he spent 6 trillon dollars. The federal reserve is buying our T bills. We are buying our own debt and printing more and more money. People wonder why gas is so high. A big part is the devaluation of our currency . By law we have to have a budget put forth from the president by a certain time. Obama has never done that and the Democrat controlled senate hasn't put forth a budget in 3 years. The Socialist in Europe have lots of government handouts and high taxes. Our Socialist have lots of government handouts and low taxes. We borrow half of what we spend and neither party want to raise everyones taxes or reduce spending. They want their cake and eat it too
part of the devaluation of a currency happens because other currencies have increased .... the chinese currency MUST rise as chinese products and services become worldwide .... otherwise China will ALWAYS have an unfair advantage ...

So this is part of the natural process of balancing on a world scale .. the USa represents 5% of world population, about 15% of world economy ... and as the world globalizes, the individual influence of the USA will shrink. If INDIA manages to do what China is doing now, their currency will also rise ... their combined population is appraoching 3 Billion ten times the USA ....

The long term effect will be that there will be no advatage to buy internationally or produce products offshore, everyone's currency will be on the same footing ... but that could take half a century.

I respect your admiration of HM The Queen, Krypteia, although not in complete agreement with you on all things. I thought you might
enjoy this, it is two amateurs at the end of the day with one professional, but I love it and find it very moving.

Hi Franko....

wondering...how much more could the Roayl Princes contribute?

Prince William is employed by the the R.A.F as a helicopter pilot
in Search and Rescue...and expected to fit in public appearances,
while his brother Prince Harry has just finished a tour of Afghanistan.......
More than we can say for the politicians sons.

Can you say George Bush? Pick one. Denny blames Obama for the mess we are in and while I'm no "O" fan, much of it was handed to him by Bush Jr. It's just getting too big to fix.
Have a lovely weekend El. Hope the family reunion of sorts went well and peaceful.
As the previous government left this country in the
sorry state it was in when this Coalition government took
over. Our countries seem to be running parallel in this
respect.

You too Quincy, have a lovely weekend. It was a most pleasant
and worthwhile reunion, bridges were mended and it was very
enjoyable.

No use telling me about her popularity Denny, no offence,
but you won't hear me extolling her virtues.
She did more harm than good in my opinion, much as I feel
sympathy for her nowadays.

Hi Lady Eleanor...
Good for you letting that man of yours know that it is the thought that counts not the dollar value of a gift... and good for him taking Ginger Bailey to the vet for you.. I do hope that everything went well with his surgery..
I made my Pack of wild dogs mad at me last night because I gave them all a worm treatment... I had to practically sit on Miss Josie Wails... but I got the meds down her and I don't have to worry anymore on her behalf.. I decided to treat them all when I saw one of those nasty round worms in Mr. Mips droppings..
It's so easy for them to get infected due to the feral cats that roam all over the neighborhood... and even though Mip was the only one they have shown up in, I figure it's best to treat them all.. Better to be safe than sorry...
I do hope that your day was a really good one and I hope that your night has been peaceful and that all of your dreams were sweet...
Sending you all of my best wishes...
((Love-n-Hugs))

Good Evening Dear Rose....
It has been a very fraught time regarding Ginger Bailey..
the good thing, he is eating but very very sorry for himself.
I am not happy with way he has been left...his head is swathed in
bandages, he has to keep this on until Monday when he goes back
to have his wound checked....my comment when I was handed him
yeserday...'no collar'?...upon reading the post-op notes when I
got home, a collar is available to PURCHASE. Unbelievable.
I have one as it happens, but will see how he goes.
Worming....you are talking my language!...:) I have found a
preparation which worms, prevents fleas, ticks and also ear mites. Now to see if I can get them at cost!
It's such a relief when we have treated all our pets, this bunch are done every three months...so are due in two months time, when I will also treat the stray who seems to have taken up residence....I have advertised him as 'found' on animalsearchuk, but to no avail, he is very good, sleeps in a a sheltered accomodation provided outside, is totally non-agressive towards this lot...

Have a great evening....almost bedtime here now...
My very best wishes to you...<3..xoxoxo

Something kind of irrestible about that kind
of word play, I always find..

On a more serious note -
apparently >

"NIKE [I am the bullet in the chamber] ad campaign,

The Nike ad campaign featuring Oscar Pistorius was swiftly pulled after the crisis broke

"I am the bullet in the chamber" ran the strapline for the Nike advert featuring Paralympic champion Oscar Pistorius."

Kind of eerie coincidence how those words were arranged.

Good night El, sleep well.

you are right, th etwo sons have set a new standard I think ... then again maybe I don't know enough about what other royals have done ... maybe it needs to be better publicized?

All I know of the Queen is that she goes around the world, rides in a car and waves to the people ... that doesn't seem like much.
