Response to MrScorpio (Reply #20)

41. My point is it's an empty victory, which will result...

 

...in police misusing other laws to harrass the flipper.

And no, with the rubberstamp re-authorisation of rendition and extra-territorial executions America is more of a police state than ever before.

Extra-territorial killings; extraordinary rendition; massive racial imballances in incarceration; two illegal wars; decades of constant interferrence in sovereign territories; the systematic destruction of public education; entrenched rape cultures in sports and the armed forces; more millions for sporting "heros" and CEO's and cuts for the needful; unaffordable health care; gouging prices on essential services and cheap distracting frivolities; constantly increasing public debt; deliberate disenfranchisment; unbridled corporate, ecconomic and financial malfeasance on an unprecedented scale; AND A NATION BEING HELD TO RANSOM.

Oh and of course that perenial favourite, guns, guns and more guns.

I reckon those beers might just about be homeopathic by now.
