Back around the middle 1970's- a crook was let-off serving any time for his crimes. All the perp had to do was resign his office.
That perp was President Richard M. Nixon- and his crime was involvement in the burglary of the Democratic campaign headquarters in the Watergate offices in D.C..
Fast forward to the year 2008.
A utility- Aquila- builds a power plant ILLEGALLY in Cass County-MO.. Rather than have Aquila remove the plant as should be properly done- your Missouri elected officials have decided to let Aquila keep their illegally-built power plant up.
All Aquila has to do is shovel some money into Cass County's coffers.
This is- again- a disgusting and damaging precedent- it sends a message to the populace AGAIN that power and money triumphs over illegal acts.
In America- you BUY justice.
Why not just make ALL laws pick and choose to follow- for ALL CITIZENS?
In fact- why do we bother with laws at all????
Oh yeah- it's to keep us POOR PEOPLE IN CHECK- those of us who can barely afford food & fuel- much less buying the verdict that suits us.
More fodder for the case that America's doomed....
