  •  Justice for all rings hollow in my skull. (8+ / 0-)

    I do not comprehend how we can invade a country and then illegally imprison those who dared resist...or even worse were just in the wrong place at the wrong time...or even worse were "sold" to us ...the high bidders in a land devoid of money.

    And continue to do so now. This all makes me feel so sad...so devoid of...hope.

      about it is that we know about it real time.

      Will that make a difference?  Will enough people care?  There's a significant percentage of our population that just doesn't want to be bothered with public policy.  They don't want to be involved in making decisions.  They were content to have a "decider" in the White House and whatever he did was good enough for them.  Not everyone is turned off by fear.  Some just feel entitled to be selfish for whatever reason.  (Probably because other people deprived them of necessary comforts.  I well remember the elderly black neighbor who was determine to stay in hospital as long as she could with her broken foot because of all the injustices she'd had to put up with.  Which brings up the point that, yes, the health care budget is bloated with the consequences of poor industrial practices and other injustices).

      How do you tell a predator from a protector? The predator will eat you sooner rather than later.
