  •  That's how they make their money (3+ / 0-)

    Suing people for infringing on their "rights."  They've fought it all the way to the Supreme Court; they've taken people's homes and businesses.

    It's a business plan.  Sick one, yeah.  But it works, at least to a degree.  A lot of them are lawyers.  Toxic, depraved shtick, but that's what they do.  It really doesn't make sense until you understand the scam side of it, but then it all makes sense.

    What do we make of the contrast between heroic teachers who stand up to a gunman and craven, feckless politicians who won’t stand up to the N.R.A.? -- Nicholas Kristof, NYT --
