It was an appeal to the blind not to be naively innocent.

The threat of punishment for treason is no impenetrable barrier to wrongdoing.

Nothing about being in government sanctifies any official. After 5,000 years of history it is hard to imagine a scam or scheme that has not be tried.

The future will bring more of the same. Count on it.

I guess, if we agree it just means that government doesn't get a free pass, nor does is deserve one.

Free includes debt-free!
