  •  Because of capitalism (5+ / 0-)

    As soon as a corporation gets much bigger than a few mom and pop grocery stores, corruption sets in.

    Very old saying, can't remember the author, "Behind every great fortune stands a great crime."

    I'm not sure it's true of every great fortune, but history does show that the greater the fortune (the higher the quarterly profits) are, the greater the crimes committed to create and maintain that wealth.

    Why are so many people shocked at this? 90% of the wars our nation has fought were fought to make money for people who were already obscenely wealthy (who didn't do any fighting themselves).

    First, oversight; second, investigations; third, impeachments; fourth, war crimes trials!
