    That's one or two steps past a simple tightly nailed staple.

    Some think the tightly nailed staple is a culprit in itself, which it's not.

    With over 25 years working for the government, I would agree with that statement and add to it by saying that "Everything is corrupt." Just look at the evening news. In the last quarter of legislative session, the two entities responsible for passing laws in this country approved a whopping total of approximately 24 proposals, (depending on your sources) none of which were pertinent to major issues. I am not taking sides here. Just do the damn job you were elected to do. Both sides are guilty and should not be paid until they stop behaving like children in a school yard. The present motto should be: "If you don't play by my rules, I'll take my ball and go home."
