I am so sick and tired of these people. Tar and feathers for most of them I say.

Or worse. America doesn't have royalty, although a lot of liberals think they are the cat's meow. I suppose they get freebies from the airlines to stay on good terms with them. One never knows if or when dems will seek revenge on anyone.

Exactly the same that happened at Countrywide - you know, the mortgage broker that helped blow things up - where members of Congress and their staff were given special perks and mortgages no regular person could ever get.

This is what garden-variety crony capitalism looks like.

Its good to be the King.
 
Or even the sycophants to the King...
 
This is America today. Law is meaningless, except to those who are not connected.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

Seems to me, and I could be wrong, this same issue of special treatment for Congress at DC airports was raised as long ago as when Reagan was President, or perhaps when the Republicans took over Congress under Newt in 1994 (though more likely the former).

Then, of course, the practice was "reformed".

Anyone else recall that?
