Maybe we can market Greenwich as a weekend destination for lobbyists

When Washington has the power to decide who gets rich and who doesn’t, it’s hardly surprising that it’s the lobbyists who are first in line for that wealth. This isn’t a new phenomenon of course but recent events, including TARP, the Stimulus Bill and impending acts in Congress make it clear, to me at least, that the politicians are determined to ensure that all paths to riches pass through it – with a hefty toll to the gatekeepers, naturally.

As I’ve said about the global warming hoax, it’s all about power and control. Washington wants it all.

    Sign of the times: 600 private jets flew into DC for last week’s inauguration. Was this the “captains of industry” paying homage to their new patrons and/or getting in the front of the handout lines?

    By comparison 300 such jets flew in for GWB’s 2000 swearing in ceremony.
