You are ridiculous. Money influencing our politics has been the primary problem for decades now. If you want to solely blame politicians, then have at it. But that would be foolish. To date, I have only ignored vfish and it has made reading these boards much more pleasant and tolerable. You add enough to the discussion normally, that I wouldn't want to include you, but when you get on your one-trick pony tangents, or absolve those who are pulling the puppet strings and only blame the puppets, then the value of what you add is truly called into question.
