Of course some are. There are dishonest people in every job field. I don't think it's fair to toss them all into a group and point fingers at ALL of them calling them liars, cheaters, ect.

I grew up in Illinois and the corruption in Chicago is so well known that it's the joke of the country - and for good reason. Not that there isn't plenty of corruption by people in the other political party (ex Gov. Ryan), but everyone knows who the Chicago Machine is run by.

The crooked ones get all the press - but my sense is that most are actually trying to do a good job.The problem is that after a while it's their best interest that counts - not that of those that elected them - that's why I'm an avid believer in term limits.

Every state has term limits, they're called elections. If politicians forget their responsibility to their constituents, vote them out. You don't need to mandate that they leave just based on time. What if they're doing a good job?

People are bad, leave cats rule the world, please. We would give them milk, yarns of ball, laser pointers and catnip, and we'd be happy.

sorry Zombirella...I've had bad situations with lawyers lol...Hence the snakepit idea

As for the govt...theres a lot of folks that I know Do do some good. The problem with it is that when you hear all about the bad ones, you rarely hear about any good that they do. I guess its not "news worthy". Which is unfortunate.

Sadly, I agree. Its amazing that "bad people/things and what not" get more attention than the good ones. Which is really sad. I think we need to start calling our news stations and tell them that we're tired of the depressing shit on tv and to have them start covering more positive, uplifting stories and the good works that the good people do. Its a shame that our country is so stuck on everyones bad business

I feel that most are, based on what I have seen. However, I do believe there's SOME good in every area of life so surely there's a good one somewhere?
