2. America is so corrupt and so fucked.

I can't stop thinking about an MSNBC story that I read on the internet yesterday.
A multimillionaire in Florida was convicted of DUI and killing a 20ish y.o. man in the process. He was sentenced to 16 years in prison. He posted a $7million bail and got house arrest. That was not the story.
The "story" was that this multi-millionaire had attempted to adopt his 42 year old girlfriend in an attempt to secure his money from the deceased man's estate. The poor thing was not allowed to adopt his girlfriend from the confines of his mansion. Really, that was "THE story, that the court would not allow him to adopt his girlfriend.
There was no outrage about his $7million keeping him out of prison...just a story about his inability to adopt his girlfriend....
how sick is our country, it's 2 tiered legal system, it's MSM and it's total lack of outrage (even a mention of) any of these inequalities?
