    Great pieces on Aaron Swartz. I can't believe secret service took over the case 2 days before he was arrested. That does show that this harassment and abuse goes straight to the top where they protect the top income quintiles and the banks as well as their properties, intellectual for way too long and those they stole from working people in the middle of the night or in bright of day because the banks always have it their way.

    The DOJ arrests people following CA state laws on Marijuana and people like Aaron who basically just checked out too many library books or free available academic journals at once.

    Sick sick priorities in this country.

    I don't negotiate grand bargains with deficit terrorists!

      when i saw that facet of the story it gave me great pause.  it tells me that swartz' harrassment was being coordinated at the top.  it seems to be of a piece with all of the other harrassment of peace activists, occupiers, quakers and other people seeking to wrest the government back from the hands of the 1% warmongering bankster thieves.  it tells me that madison's nightmare of the capture of all three branches of the government has occurred or is close at hand.

      i'm part of the 99% - america's largest minority
