How Far From The Tree Has The Proverbial Apple Fallen?

America political system is hopelessly corrupt..Unless or until we rid ourselves of computerized voting machines that can be programmed to cheat the American people, scumbags like Jeese jackson and his father will continue to run wild.

It's refreshing to know that some of the so called 'untouchables' like jesse Jackson Jr. may be brought to justice for failing to uphold his oath of office..

Come now...

don't you think perhaps Mr Jackson said the wrong thing about/to the wrong handler and then operation "dirt" kicked in?

There's dirt on everyone. Usually its the good guys who go down trying to buck the system - keep that in mind. I have no independent news regarding Mr Jackson. Just would like to help folks stay grounded in the reality of today's "main stream" life.
