Default Re: Bill Janklow Out of the Clinker?

Sure. Let's punish the ~500,000 SD residents who have the misfortune of living in the same state as the ~200,000 who voted for Janklow in 2002, the handful of SD Highway Patrol officers who didn't ticket Janklow as aggressively as the could have, and the judge who gave him an excessively light sentence. Makes perfect sense.

Scott's bike was an H-D per the AMA. (Not that it makes much difference what bike you're on when you have congressmen going 70 mph through the stop sign and running into you.)

"the solution as i see it? vote dishonest politicians out of office, and replace them with candidates that have their constituency's interests at heart."



Well, you see - I believe THAT is the problem itself. Local Government Officials should have the Local Interests at heart - National Officials should have the greater-interests of the Nation as a Whole in mind first, and foremost.



Getting re-elected starts the day after a politician's initial swearing-in. To do so, he/she does ONLY what they believe will get the majority of their constituency to vote for them in the NEXT election.



Sometimes, unpopular decisions HAVE to be made. The only Men (or Women) with the steel to make such decisions are so repulsed and disgusted by the goings-on within our political system, that I believe you'll never catch them dead in Congress. And, in the unlikely event such a person ever manage to supress their natural aversion to the cesspool of avarice and greed we call the Legislative Branch of our Government, they would be so ostracized and shunned by their "fellow" Congressmen as to be rendered wholly ineffective.



I have more to say, but this is not the forum.
