    THEN offered some suggested solutions, maybe his diary wouldn't be the turd that it is currently.

      I'm not defending Cenk.  The premise that all government is bought isn't the same as that all government is corrupt, and the truth is that although the system of government is corrupt, a significant plurality of the people who work for it are not, probably to a greater extent than in the private sector.

      Chants of "government is good" and "government is bad" are equally stupid.
