    Thank goodness we’re keeping the lobbyists out of the government!

    Remember this:

    A lobbyist who joins the Obama administration also is forbidden from working on issues they previously were involved with, he said. Any person who leaves the administration will be barred from lobbying the government for two years.

    Oh wait, “Former Industry Executve” is not the same as ” Lobbyist” – I feel much better now…

    But wait a minute, where do Lobbyists come from – oh that’s right, the executive ranks of their respective industry. Now I see the Hope of the Change!

    This seems to be the M.O. of the “new way of thinking” Obama administration.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The US Senate on Thursday approved the Obama administration’s nomination of Julius Genachowski, a telecommunications industry executive, to head the Federal Communications Commission.

    It is somewhat telling that ANY government works secretly on a law that is not to do with social or security issues but concerned with something affecting all citizens of a country. It shows were the real interest is… MONEY.
