  •  The Presidential election has become the (0+ / 0-)

    ultimate red herring to distract from the down-ticket races.  Conservatives have figured out that the law is their ticket to nirvana.  From "there ought to be a law," they've moved to "there's gotta be a law" to make sure we get our way.
    While money has proved a handy tool to manipulate the population, a two-pronged approach is needed for complete domination. The law has to be tailored right up front, since relying on judges has proved risky. Because, even if judges eventually declare laws unconstitutional, they have no enforcement powers and monetary judgments have little effect against deep pockets.
    Just look at the banksters.  If they lose trillions in nominal value, they can buy themselves out of any jam with a few billion.

    Willard's forte = "catch 'n' cage". He's not into "catch and release."
