    because of the "guillotines". We do not want to become like the looney right that actually takes this one step farther and actually kills people.

    BUT I did agree with this part:

    Some people will never face prison for the crimes they have committed.  Deal with it, we're told.

    These same people rig the political system to redistribute all the nation's wealth into the hands of their cronies.  Deal with it, we're told.

    These same people have lifetime employment, platinum healthcare, and round-the-clock police protection.  They never have to experience the hell they are creating for working-class Americans.  Deal with it, we're told.

    And now we're told that in the rare occasions when one of these subhumans comes out from his palace walls, we should address him politely?

    Well actually not the subhuman part either because that leads down the same road. But we could legitimately accuse Ray Kelley of feeling so superior and so racist that he doesn't mind promoting racist policies and he is indifferent to true law enforcement where laws regarding rights are UPHELD rather than stymied.  

    It seems that all my life we have been bombing someone, teaching them a lesson. Every day I understand more deeply how violent we are. Violent to others and violent to ourselves. - Robert Olmstead
