    dished out on a sidewalk is that it undermines the rule of law.  I wrote about this a year ago after the Trayvon Martin murder.  

    Is it a coincidence that Geithner sent a letter to Boehner last week stating that using the threat of default undermines the rule of law?  I don't think so.

    Look at the Second Amendment debate.   A whole segment of the US population has been persuaded that guns are preferable to the rule of law to stop liberal public policy.

    The corrosive effect of rightwing subversion is insidious but it shows up here and there and it leads to chaos.
