60. It has gotten to the point where it is beyond corruption.
It is now expected that the rich and powerful will be protected from the law by the very same agencies that are suppose to prosecute them. They have no fear and no restrictions. The idle rich will do what they want, when they want to whom they want. And the whole Justice system will be rallied to protect them.

It use to be there was some semblance of law and order. Now, they don't even pretend to prosecute the idle rich, corporate aristocracy and Oligarchs.

I'm surprised anyone follows the law anymore. If it can not be used to prosecute the worst crimes of the rich and powerful, what's the use of having laws at all?

The Dancing Supremes are a joke, they take bribes and decide cases in favor of their friends and political pals. The President authorized torture and bragged about in his book. The Congress abdicates its responsibility to Impeach, declare war and control the Supreme Court. Yet nothing ever will happen to them. Nothing will ever happen to the thousands of con artists and thieves revolving through the doors of our government. It is happening at the federal level and at the state level.

Each successive administration picks up the well worn role of enabler and accessory to the crime after the fact. No one prosecutes the privileged.

When the working class starts disregarding the laws as easily as the idle rich do, the whole system will come down.
