Culture of Corruption: Many Americans Losing Trust in Government?

“Go, Mazine (sic) and Nancy. Who listens to professional character assassins such as Malkin? Isn’t Malkin a modern deriviative of Maulkin, one of Macbeth’s witch’s evil associates? Seems like something evil reeks everytime I click on one of these weird missives.”

That according to John Welsh, one of my readers.

We seem to have becme a nation that says its OK to respond to truth with personal attacks and character assassination.

We are too quick to holler racism when the news is color-blind and Barack promised a post-racial world.

We have come to accept lies, corruption and those that break the law.  If you do evil: come back in a few weeks and we’ll forgive.

Bernie Madoff might be the exception….

Do you think Nancy Pelosi will investigate her California pal Maxine Waters for conflict of interest?  There is still an ethics panel in the House, isn’t there?

At the same time, Ms. Waters has publicly boosted OneUnited’s executives and criticized its government regulators during congressional hearings. Last fall, she helped secure the bank a meeting with Treasury officials.

Here’s another case of splitting the truth….

Candidate For Detroit Mayor a Little Slick With The Truth

Detroit mayoral candidate Dave Bing’s education credentials have come into question, with Syracuse University saying he received his bachelor’s almost three decades after Bing claims he did and an acknowledgment from the candidate’s spokesman that his assertion of having a master’s degree is false.

The Detroit Free Press reported Wednesday that Bing has embellished his Syracuse credentials in biographical material. The claim of having a master’s degree in business administration is made on a video directed at pro players preparing for life after basketball.

Syracuse spokesman Kevin Morrow told the newspaper that Bing, who went on to a basketball Hall of Fame career with the Detroit Pistons, wasn’t awarded an undergraduate degree in economics until 1995, after he completed additional courses. Bing has claimed repeatedly he completed college in 1966.

Bing spokesman Cliff Russell told the newspaper the discrepancies are the result of misunderstandings……
