  •  Republicans always seem to find (9+ / 0-)

    a way out of "personal responsibility" for themselves.  Whether it's Iran-Contra, data mining, lying us into war, or war crimes they slip right through the supposed system of "justice" that should be in place.

    And we all know that when there's no accountability, the behavior just gets worse.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

    •  They even eat their own - their Shareholders even (10+ / 0-)

      They do make a big pretense of being "accountable" to shareholders in their corporations... except when it suits them they even stiff their fellow travelers in the wealth siphoning game... vote themselves a big bonus  while gutting the corporation and leaving the smaller fish who believe in the Republican Randian myths to chew on bones. their co-conspirators all bail out early and skate any insider trading trouble.... it is truly amazing.

      And it is just the companion, parallel behavior to the political chicanery you mentioned... politics  for them is just business by other means or in different guise... and vice-versa... business is just their kind of rigged politics dressed up as "Free-enterprise"...

      And owning the policing and oversight is just a routine cost of business... and part of that is owning those who pass the laws too... (and these days not even write them).

      Pogo & Murphy's Law, every time. Also "Trust but verify" - St. Ronnie (hah...)
