    This is kind of gross. You don't want to criticize these corporate donations to charity, but it's a big game of misdirection as their charitable donations wind up being an actively manipulative red herring, drawing positive attention while at once gaming the system for corporate economic gain. Twisted. Where does the individual lie here? Fishing at the banks of the polluted waterway while the politician and the corporate chiefs enjoy a lovely charity fundraiser gala.

    Here's a new idea. Force all politicians to wear a track suit like nascar, so we can see who's pockets their in.
