  •  Hate to sound cliche here (7+ / 0-)

    And hate using words from a disgraced John Edwards but he knew what he was talking about here.

    This story just continues to highlight his Two Americas theme...and the inequality in all facets of it in our country. The powerful elite plutocrats who essentially have pushed our country into the sad sorry state we find it now.

    This case highlights the inequality of our Justice System. In this instance, the absurdity of the laws written by the monied interests corporate groups and powerful lobbyists. It also highlights the inequality in that here is an overzealous prosecutor and her office feeling it essential to go to the  mat to enforce any violation of said interpretation of the law in such an aggressive over the top bullying manner, because basically he was low hanging fruit...and not a powerful connected elite plutocrat. No if anything he was a threat to said plutocrats because he he challenged them. He must be made an example of so some other brilliant serf doesn't get any idea of challenging the system of Two Americas.
    The haves and the haves nots
    The monied elitists and the serfs

    Obama's inability to challenge the status quo has just codified it all. Justice and laws are not proportional nor is selective enforcement of those laws, nor is ability to defend oneself against enforcement of the laws..it all comes down to plutocrat or serf.

    Two America's . It's a government (in this case our justice system) of, for and by the corporate political ruling class elites.

    The Plutocratic States of America, the best government the top 1% and corporations can buy. We are the 99%-OWS.

      different spin on the "audacity" of hope--doesn't it?

      The Onion says----scholars have discovered---the Mayan word for "Apocalypse" in fact---translates more accurately as: "Time of pale obese gun monsters."
