The basis of the current snatch the money and run political group is the divide and conquer scam. It has gotten well-worn but is still remarkably effective. First, the civil rights diversity acts were trotted out. They are all allegedly designed to improve the status of the indicated downtrodden group. A new crowd is added periodically so that a climate of disillusioned citizens bemoaning their fates can maintain the curtain disguising the graft. This way funds can easily be squirreled away for the political class.
