    Yes, but there was something else about that incident which I forgot, which led me to conclude that criminals are way too well protected in this country.

And the fact that it already has the highest prison population in the world also supports this theory. But let's see if the people agree with me

    I picked other It looks like they are funneling money somewhere. Even if you gave each person in American a million dollars each for five years it would still equal only $1.6 billion dollars(assuming the population was on the average of 310 million and that was 310 million x five.) over a 5 year period. Last I checked there is not 310 million millionaires in this country.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I see it as right on the nose.
