In the News "The increase is a sign that the search engine can no longer afford to operate in a Silicon Valley vacuum. For years, Google had a reputation for indifference inside the Beltway. It took Google until May 2005 to set up a presence in Washington and even then, its headquarters consisted of a one-man lobbying shop in suburban Maryland." Do the Americans among you just accept this? Is this normal? Why aren't you guys turning to the streets when your country is quite clearly being bought left and right? I mean, I'm sure this happens everywhere, but on this scale? Gives me the creeps.

The reason people get confused with American politics is because they think that politicians are caring people who love their country and want what is best for their fellow countrymen.

The reality is that politicians (especially American politicians) are like prostitutes. They will do anything and everything to (a) make a lot of money, (b) be taken care of by powerful corporations/pimps, and (c) not end up in jail.

Keep this in mind and everything will start making sense. Including the current state of the country.
