    hope, because it will get better.  All it takes is Americans to fully exercise they rights they were given at birth, and additional rights they have gained as adults.  For too long, our Constitutional Rights have been eroded.  Now, they are trying to take away our rights under the 7th Amendment, which guarantees the right to a trial by jury.  Know what "arbitration" is?  No, well, you better look it up.  It means you signed away your right  to a jury of your peers.
    Remember Habeus Corpus? It's lawyerspeak for, "You better have a body, or no conviction".  Guess what?  You no longer have that right.  Does it make you angry?
    You are apparently only allowed to exercise your First Amendment rights between 6am and 10pm.  Does that make you angry?  Makes me angry.
