Yes, you're right Nnobby45,
Just a shame. Can remember when I was a kid, being taught in school to be proud our nations capital, look up to our lawmakers in Washington. Watching things come out of Washington(speech's,parades,etc) as a kid I was always proud and always wanted to go there.
Today, knowing how corrupt things are, it's really hard/almost impossible to try and instill the same values in my kids/grandkids.
