Re: Disturbing New Trend

Dear Bill,
You hit right on the head. To be perfectly blunt, I have absolutely NO faith
in our justice system (Top to Bottom). Too much greed, corruption and
politics on every level. There are literally thousands of laws on the books
(more added every year by the politicians) that are just waiting to be used
at the system's beckon will. FACT: prerequisite for a political career is
usually a law degree.
In all reality, we might as well get use to it and accept the fact that it's
just going to get worst - that is unless we as American's (aka Sheep) have
the guts to do something about it - for which I won't hold my breath.
