THE INTEGRITY OF POLITIANS
Jay Leno expressed the cynicism of many when he said, “politics is just show business for ugly people.”

Libyan officials discovered that Qaddafi hid $200 billion in bank accounts, real estate, and investments around the world. That’s about $30,000 for every Libyan citizen, many of whom live in abject poverty. Officials in China drive Porsches and the government spends millions on luxury cars for Communist Party officials. So much for communism serving all the people.
