Regulators Watch Porn and Literally Sleep with Industry They’re Supposed to Rein In … Instead of Protecting the Public

They’re Pimps … Selling Out the American People For a Price

The Washington Times reported yesterday that Nuclear Regulatory Commission workers watch porn instead of cracking down on unsafe conditions at nuclear plants.

That’s not an isolated problem …

We noted last year:

Investigators from the Treasury’s Office of the Inspector General found that some of the regulator’s employees surfed erotic websites, hired prostitutes and accepted gifts from bank executives … instead of actually working to help the economy.

Likewise, senior SEC employees spent up to 8 hours a day surfing porn sites instead of cracking down on financial crimes.

The Minerals Management Service – the regulator charged with overseeing BP and other oil companies to ensure that oil spills don’t occur – was riddled with “a culture of substance abuse and promiscuity”, which included “sex with industry contacts”.

The biggest companies own the D.C. politicians.  Indeed, the head of the economics department at George Mason University has pointed out that it is unfair to call politicians “prostitutes”.  They are in fact pimps … selling out the American people for a price.

    Yes, the Eighteenth Century, Enlightenment experiment in self-governance is proving human nature is indeed immutable.

    The question is, has this continuing experiment also created a new law of the jungle that is both imminently efficient, and likely to continue to foster a populace capable of adapting to conditions favorable to the sustenance of the slowly evolving American culture. Though as a nation we are young, our history seems to say, yes. The American experience is still far more inventive, rapacious and militarily aggressive than the whole rest of the world combined.

    Now, if this likely future result were only something any of us really wants, instead of being just something each of us merely expects. Such is the thick pall of our American imperial hubris.

    God bless America.
