Land of the Free....

.. to buy off those who make the law. Not that it's any better here in Brexshit land or most other countries for that matter. I find it hilarious that many in the West still think of certain countries as "corrupt" when their elected representatives are all busy lining their own pockets right there in there own country/state They are just like that customs agent asking for an incentive to smooth your journey through his area. I don't know if any of you have also had to complete anti-corruption courses? I've done several as we have annual refresher courses and every time I do one I ask myself "Why is this all illegal, yet our chosen politicians seem to do this every day and with seemingly total impunity?" Why do we elect bent politicians?
