Politicians always underestimate the wisdom of the people they suppose to serve. They forget the things they say, or "promise" they would do to preserve the needs and concerns of the community. But they fail to realize and understand...We don't forget!...and we will hold your" arse"accountable when you lie or deceive us, to suit your own agenda, instead of the " will" of the people.Folks don't fret!...keep the fire lit, till tavaglione come correct!..

The reason all elected officals "underestimate the wisdom of the people" is pur simple logic. They have a degree in something, can talk smoother, can quote laws rules and regulations. La De Freakin Good! I am sick and tired of being lied to, stolen from, made fun of and taken advantage of. It is more than pure logic that money was the issue here, so track down his funds, his families funds, his trust funds, anything that has his name on it that cost money. He has to have hidden it somewhere!

One way to stop this type of abuse is a simple logical thought process. All elected officals don't get paid unless they produce positive results for the people who put them there in the first place. Same as a regular job, you don't get paid if you don't produce. Or more in the factual manner: You get FIRED! If you take way thier money they will listen. Just like a child, take away the toys till they behave. What toys can we take away form our elected officlas? Prepaid fuel cards is a great start.
