Re: Convicts

Davos,

This has been around for a while, and I haven't checked it out with any of the fact check sites either.  But, given my own opinion as to how the U.S. Congress behaves,  I would tend to believe it, rather than not.  But then, we have an oligarchy.

Follow up:   Here's what Snopes has to say about it:  http://www.snopes.com/politics/crime/congress.asp

That still doesn't change what I said in my post #1.

My definition of Oligarchy = people who operate a government with little or no caring for what the voters think or want.
