    Prostitution of power companies.  I see the add on TV where people each wear a sticker on their head saying how much they would save if ‘blah blah.’ Each time i see the add i think there should be another sticker above saying how much they would be saving if max Bradford and his cronies hadn’t sold off part of the companies.  All I see the likes of Key doing is selling out to line their own pockets. But this is a nation of fools who have a rude awaking to reality {payday} when i leave the country. Hones frown i have seen on Gods face concerning this people and their arrogance. I could say much about much in this country but “their a waste of time and energy.”
