    Have you ever tried to do something to your property and the local government told you that you couldn't, and the neighbor two houses does the same thing but is best friends with people on the zoning board so he/she gets away with it. Discuss issues like this and other local forms of corruption throughout the United States.

      There are tons of cases that resolve this very issue--such actions by gov't are a violation under the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment.  We have a remedy for such corruption in this's call a law suit.  Talk to a lawyer.

        This happens quite frequently in CA, IL, NY and NJ...incidentally what do all these states have in common politically?

          They are all highly populated, and therefore regulated.  It isn't because they are blue states, ie.   (And IL is only blue once in a while.)

          Witness red state AZ if you want to see zoning and stupid regulation hell; a legacy in part brought over by California refugees with litigious attitudes.  smile

    I understand that you can get a lawyer and go through the legal system but in smaller communities especially in the states you mentioned you got to get lucky to beat the system. By the way that was just one example of corruption I was talking about You should post your own example that you've witnessed or friends of yours have.

    There is nothing like corruption in any society.
    On the part of authorites, it is their over-ambition and inclination to earn more than legal, etc.
    On the part of public who want to get something done, it is their anxiety to get it earlier, and to get what is not due to them and what are not eligible to them.
    The major blame has to be borne by the public and not the authorities... Because, the talk of corruption is initiated by the expecting public only.  After that, those greedy authorities fall a pray to corruption. 
    If the public are not willing to pay bribes, and if they expect only what they deserve, the question of corruption does not arise.
