Who comandeered a rescue boat so he could run into his house and retrieve a briefcase during the Katrina flooding? I don't remember exactly, but it was pretty clear that something fishy was going on there.

I concur wholeheartedly with both you and Diana in regard to this (and all the other "Alert!! Corrupt politician! Republican! Democrat! Liberal! Conservative!" etc., etc., ad nauseum, your side is worse than my side garbage.)

As far as I'm concerned, it boils down to picking out the cleanest of the dirty laundry in each and every case. It's pretty much all dirty - it only depends on which dirt you happen to be most fond of. Happy

But the left seems to have a case of selective hearing loss and amnesia these days. All this "culture of corruption" nonsense coming from Pelosi, Reid, Dean and the rest of the Democrats is hooey!

FBI probes Watergate prostitution allegations; Infamous hotel used by defense contractor to entertain lawmakers, CIA officials?

>> The infamous Watergate Hotel is again at the center of political intrigue.

"We have received subpoenas for documents," says Watergate Hotel Assistant General Manager Josh Graham. "We have complied, but I cannot confirm names of individuals or companies that were part of those subpoenas."

FBI agents are investigating what happened in the hotel's posh suites, which defense contractor Brent Wilkes turned into party suites for politicians and CIA officers. There was poker and cigars, and the FBI wants to know if there were prostitutes, too. <<

I'm reminded of the title of a book about the Texas Legialsature: "The Second-best Little Wh0rehouse in Texas." Wink

Look it up in the dictionary. My example, however, clearly is a culture. So what you call my "hijack" is more appropriate to the thread title than your lame excuse at deflecting attention from the primarily Republican culture of corruption in Washington (how could it be otherwise, given DeLay's insistence that a corporation give only to Republicans if it really wants to be counted as a friend?)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
