    Thomas, Scalia, the Koch Brothers and the rest of the monsters will live forever.

    Until someone goes to jail for this stuff, this type of cancer will just get worse.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

      In this world, you can gather all you want in the streets, but it's the people who play during election time who wield all the power.
      It's actually a lot closer to the opposite of the truth. NOTHING is EVER changed in Washington by the beltway crowd.

      Sure, you have to win elections. But, you'll notice that we just HAD an election, won, and now all the insiders are considering how much to cut Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. . . . because FREEDOM! Or something nobody can articulate.

      If blacks had waited and voted every 4 years for moderately better Dixiecrats to give them civil rights they'd still be waiting. FDR created the New Deal because people were marching in the streets, the Bonus Army was being attacked by the National Guard and President Hoover's limo was pelted with rocks as he drove through the streets of Washington. There was the hint of revolution in the air.

      In Greece the political establishment doesn't listen to the people so they riot in Athens. In Syria and Egypt it goes beyond rioting all the way to armed revolution and civil war.

      The Tea-party may be divorced from reality, but they aren't wrong about this. Gathering and chanting and marching may bore the elites but politics as usual never accomplishes anything whatever.

      It takes intense and sustained OUTSIDE pressure to change what is possible in Washington. Occupy Wall Street or Tea-bagger. The ONLY Hope for real change is sustained political protest.

      Clarence Thomas is rather dull. His bile will choke him sooner, rather than later.

          It Would Already Have Happened.

          Don't count on undead Thomas not to sit like Poe's Raven on the Court for the next 30 years croaking "Nevermore!" at every hint of change.
