5. Nice Moyers piece.
What in the hell happened to this nation?

Something very odd happened in the wake of the stolen 2,000 election. Since then, criminality, critical investigations into that destructive criminality and certainly appropriate sentences for the crime has more or less vanished. After the Obama Administration took office they essentially said, "We chose to look forward." There is little argument that the Bush Administration tortured (they admitted it)and they misled us into a costly unnecessary war. I don't think a President has the right to simply wave his hand and dismiss crimes of this magnitude. A president has the right to specific individual pardons. I'm no lawyer but I don't think the President was correct to allow such blatant criminality to go completely uninvestigated. Same deal with the Wall Street malfeasance.

Law and order "Righties" have always argued that it is only through the most severe sentencing can we discourage crime. What happened to that? Crime only counts when someone else does it? The Laws are written for someone else?
