Those pesky prosecutors refusing to do your political dirty work for you on your schedule?

 

Why not just complain to the prez, and have him order his hand-picked aides to push out the prosecutors. Better yet, use the provisions of the U.S. Patriot Act to appoint the people you want to those jobs and skirt the confirmation process.

 

The Russians couldn't do any better than this.

Yeah, and everytime I use the term "neo-fascists" I get blasted by my audience. 

Wonder what we'd get if we voted for folks who DIDN'T advertise themselves as the pillars of virtue, morality and patriotism? 

Wait...Maybe they'd be the HONEST ones!  Ugh...

All of this Orwellian thinking I'm having to consider is just giving me a headache.

Critical voices always get blasted and are being ridiculed as conspiracy theories. People want to live in la-la-land, where everything is so nice.

Political crisis is never good. I smell a bear market. But only if the Dems take their job seriously and don't just want to get reelected... I'm not hopeful. 

On the other side, I really don't want to see a bear market, nobody wants.
