  •  "I thought a lot of things back then" (7+ / 0-)

    I believed back then that change was coming and what a feeling that was. Hope, so filled with hope, back then.

    And now dealing with the feeling that all that hope is gone and knowing nothing happening now is going to bring it back.

    •  The rule of law is in worse shape now than it was (7+ / 0-)

      then.  Some of that's due to 5 GOP partisans in black robes, and some of that's due to an executive branch whose views on civil liberties and executive power are fundamentally consistent w/ those of their predecessors.  

      As someone who followed the Watergate investigations closely, I never dreamed that Nixon would prove to be ahead of his time.

      Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?

        grew up in So. Calif and Tricky Dick was a swear word after his smear campaign to win the seat in the Senate. This was in the 50's.

        never, never thought about good old days of Nixon presidency

        this comparison shows how far the country has fallen in the two tier justice system, for example

        this has been chronicled by Glenn Greenwald including his recent book with this title
