Whass up with Congressional Black Caucus?

I've been reading this article today, and it struck me - there may be a pattern here and I think I can discern it. Mind you, as an engineer, I am conditioned to notice patterns. So, lets take a quick look.

Case 1: "Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D., Texas), a long-serving congresswoman from Dallas, improperly awarded thousands of dollars in college scholarships from the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, violating nepotism and ethics rules by giving the funds to multiple relatives and the children of top aide Rod Givens."

Case 2: "Representative Charles Rangel (D-NY) is a twenty-term member of Congress representing New York’s 15th district [and a member of Congressional Black Caucus]. Rep. Rangel’s ethics issues stem from (1) improperly leasing four rent controlled apartments; (2) improperly using congressional stationery; (3) failing to report rental income from a vacation property; and (4) trading legislative assistance for contributions to the Rangel Center at City College. Rep. Rangel was included in CREW’s 2008 congressional corruption report."

Case 3: "Representative Jesse Jackson, Jr., is an eight-term member of Congress, representing Illinois’ 2nd district [and a member of Congressional Black Caucus]. Rep. Jackson’s ethics issue stems from his bid to be appointed to a vacant Illinois Senate seat and subsequently, the federal investigation of former-Governor Rod Blagojevich."

Case 4: "Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) is a ten-term member of Congress [and a member of Congressional Black Caucus], representing California’s 35th congressional district. She is a senior member of the House Financial Services Committee. Rep. Waters’ ethics issues stem from a meeting she arranged between officials at the Department of Treasury and OneUnited Bank, a bank with which she has financial ties. Rep. Waters was included in CREW’s 2005 and 2006 congressional corruption reports for unrelated matters."

Case 5: "Senator Roland Burris (D-IL) is a first-term senator from Illinois [and a member of Congressional Black Caucus], appointed to the U.S. Senate in December 2008 by former Governor Rod Blagojevich to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of then President-elect Barack Obama. Sen. Burris’ ethics issues stem from the circumstances surrounding his appointment."

Case 6: "Representative Laura Richardson (D-CA) is a two-term member of Congress, representing California’s 37th congressional district [and a member of Congressional Black Caucus]. Rep. Richardson’s ethics issues stem from accepting favorable loans and her failure to properly report a loan on her financial disclosure statements. Rep. Richardson was included in CREW’s 2008 report on congressional corruption."

Case 7: And then we got Rep. William Jefferson, D-La, a member of Congressional Black Caucus, and the man infamous for stuffing 90 thousand dollars in the freezer in his Congressional office.

Quite coincidentally, 5 out of the 15 Most Corrupt Members of Congress of 2010 belong to the Congressional Black Caucus. In 2008, there were only 48 members in the Congressional Black Caucus, while there are a total of 535 men and women in the 2010 Congress. I am sure my readers can do the math and see that a member of Congressional Black Caucus is 4 times more likely to get into the List of the Most Corrupt Members of Congress than an average congress member. And, as you may imagine, Congressional Black Caucus is now asking Congress to curtail its ethics investigations and make them less transparent to the public.

I am curious if this analysis should result in some kind of disclaimer for the Congressional Black Caucus - for example they may warn congressmen that wish to join that the Black Caucus may significantly increase the chances of corruption and may possibly lead to long prison terms (which are undeniably bad for health). But leaving the jokes aside - why is this Caucus so irredeemably corrupt? The answer to this question is very simple - Congressional Black Caucus is a self-selected group of liberal politicians who adore corrupt Third World regimes, and who personally befriend totalitarian dictators like Castro and Hugo Chavez. Moreover, the Congressional Black Caucus is a symptom of a serious decease which affected the Black community and the Black leadership - the complete breakdown of moral character, standards of decency and integrity. That is not to say that "All Black People are corrupt" - far from it, of course. The Black community can be proud of its most outstanding members - Thomas Sowell, the leading intellectual of this century not just in America but the entire world, a famous economist Walter Williams, an upstanding and courageous Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and leading feminist and civil-rights leader Ayaan Hirsi Ali. But unfortunately, the Black community shuns its heroes and instead follows the scoundrels like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Barack Obama. Until this trend is reversed, the Congressional Black Caucus will continue to look more as a criminal enterprise than a union of Black intellectuals, and the black communities will continue to be poor, uneducated and dangerous. As the saying goes - we deserve the government we have, and unfortunately, the Black Community today fully deserves its congressmen. I hope I will live long enough to see the Black Community to break the chains of the ideas of perpetual victimihood and other liberal big-government crap. By all means, it will be a glorious day when we see this.

I think the main reasons for this are as follows:
- The black caucus members are your typical racists and believe that whitey has always had some supreme advantage that they have always used to enrich themselves on the backs of blacks, therefore "Whitey gots his and we's just gettin ours" now.

- In a similar vein, being liberals, and observing how liberals go about elections and all other matters of the struggle to gain power, that being through cheating, stealing and lying, I assume this is because they can't possibly associate the success of hard working fairly honest and ethical people to the fact that they are hard working and fairly honest and ethical. They assume incorrectly, that anytime a conservative wins an election that 'They Stole This Election". Therefore, stealing elections, lying, cheating and stealing, is simply putting them on equal footing as their opposition. How convenient.

In practice, in particular obama and crew, it seems they put all of their 'brain power' and energy into the election and have nothing left over for dealing with the actual issues of the office of the President.

So he goes on vacation and golf outings because he simply doesn't know what else to do, and because he believes incorrectly that this is what all the typical whitey presidents have always done.

I started out thinking obama had someone pulling his strings, but at this point I'm fairly convinced that he is simply a dumbass who reads teleprompter speeches written by 20-something dumbasses, that are full of words and phrases that resonate with the young liberal and have not the slightest connection to reality.
