Want to talk politics? Here are some politically loaded quotes. Abuse of money as bribes and gifts. Note that "gifts" can mean bribes, rather than actual gifts, when the context is negative. You can even quote me on these, for I say the same.

ake your time. Note the details in these. And keep in mind stuff like where stimulus money went, why Republican Dodge dealerships were shut down, and where like 2/3's of last spring's unspent stimulus money may end up going.

I removed the reference numbers to focus on the quotes.

**************************************
... Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.

... In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.

... And his sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment.

... For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery.

... And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the wise, and perverteth the words of the righteous.

... Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.

... He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live.

... A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.

... Many will intreat the favour of the prince: and every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts.

... The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it.

... They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom.

the Bible quotes generically apply, good grief.

Care to give links backing up your claims that "where stimulus money went, why Republican Dodge dealerships were shut down, and where like 2/3's of last spring's unspent stimulus money may end up going" were actually graft?

The verses describes democracy to a T and both of the pathetic parties.The OP did not go far enough,If you look at the crucifixion of Christ the Pharisee's went out and bribed the people to yell the name of Jesus over Barabbas for His death and for Barabbas to be freed.
So mob rule commonly known as democracy played a key role,no where in the bible do you find support for the people to be lead by democracy,you will find support for the monarchy at that time and in the future.

Ummm yea, though I have had such thoughts run, fleetingly, in my head, actually posting them in a public forum was never an option. The three in question here, do disgust me with their ineptness, arrogance and stupidity, but I , also, prefer to confine my commentary to a bit more ....tame...level. I do, sincerely, hope that America wakes up a bit in 2010. My home state certainly is, and Reid is running scared. Sending him back to Searchlight (actually he just needs to hide in a basement in DC with the rest of the rats) would be just dandy.
