But what about the Trilateral Commision and the Bildebergers? And something this big couldn't happen without the Pope being involved. < /sarcasm, as if you couldn't tell>

WASHINGTON - Lobbyist Jack Abramoff pleaded guilty Tuesday to federal charges of conspiracy, tax evasion and mail fraud, clearing the way for him to cooperate in a massive government investigation of influence peddling involving members of Congress.
Is there something ridiculous about thinking that the media might also peddle their infuence?
The media is just as likely to take bribes as our politicians. In fact, I would say that they are more likely for they are not under as much scrutiny.
We live in a corrupt world. It is only logical to apply this blatant corruption to the many unanswered questions that we are faced with. One unanswered question is why are customers being expected to tip higher percentages in restaurants? Another unaswered question is why can employers lower the wages of their tipped employees below the minimum wage requirements of this country. And yet another unaswered question is why can't I keep my tips?
The answer is simply, although it always get's the same old tiresome response that such an answer is ridiculous and conspiracy minded. The answer is, businesses are bribing our politicians and our media to get what they want. Businesses want customers to tip more so that the business can steal more. Businesses want to financially benefit from their employee's tips so they've paid off our politicians to allow them to lower the wages of those who receive tips.
I want to keep my tips but the media refuses to publish articles that expose the fact that our goverment is allowing and encouraging employers to steal their employee's tip. Is there another answer other than corruption?
Is it really ridicualous to believe that people would conspire for money?
This is one of the biggest stories of the century. Our politicians along with the media have been party to one of the biggest conspiracies in our country. The stealing of America's tips. Our puiblic's tips are being turned into corporate profits driven by payoffs to politicians and the media. Our politicians have undoubtably been paid off to pass blatantly unconstitutional and criminal laws so that businesses can steal the finacial benefits of their worker's tips. Our mendia has undoubtable been paid off to avoid exposing such criminal acts and as a result I cannot keep the tips customers give me.
Do you have a better answer?
