    What I fail to understand is: Why is such a fuss made about things like this? The whole dam regime is corrupt. There is not one individual who has any redeemable ethics. everything they do, or say is illegal, and nothing will be done about it, because the jellyfish (congress) are and have been doing nothing but eating up taxpayer’s money and warming chairs. The few things they did for effect, like Fast and Furious, they were told to shut up and sit down, and they obeyed like good puppies should.
