    It just occurred to me that not only is all this, and MUCH more, being done under a black Dem POTUS, he is also a teacher of constitutional law.

    And one more thing.

    Monica Contreras is a white woman, groped by a white man in the court of a white, female judge. That does not make it worse than any other combination of gender and race, but it does show how totally dissociated from their humanity people have become.

    There was only one human being in that court and it was Monica Contreras, everyone else existed there as a uniform, a role, a "position" and the one with the lowest status was treated as nothing more than raw meat.

    And yes, there are many good people in America who are horrified about this, but, apart from a couple o firings, nothing will happen.

    Wikileaks is about Bradley Manning, not about thugs with helicopters and machine guns playing shoot-em-up with real bodies. Edward Snowden is about a dropout breaching his contract and not about mass snooping on the lives of everyone. Global, extra-judicial drone murders are about cool military technology and not about justice or an ingrained paranoia at the highest level of the most powerful force ever assembled on the planet.

    We cannot have the conversations that we need to have for our own survival, let alone for allowing us to live reasonable lives.

    This IS the way the world ends, not with a bang, but with the whimper of a frightened woman preyed upon by the very people assigned to "serve and protect" her.

    Until inauguration day The USA is in the greatest danger it has ever experienced.
