The Date Rape of America

DATE RAPE

I grew up in a country where the rule of law was supreme. Or at least it seemed that way.

But somewhere along the line the varnish of polite society has been worn off so that the brass now shows through.

That’s why today nobody is really surprised that the DOJ has sent rapid response teams to Florida to organize African-Americans to protest against the government.

That’s why, as a man fights for his life in a court room in Florida, like George Zimmerman does, no one seems very surprised when the judge intercedes to try to throw the trial for the prosecution.

In the late 1980s, when Leona Helmsley bragged that rich people didn’t pay taxes only little people did, prosecution quickly followed. She served time in jail for her braggadociosness. But today it’s almost as if Obama and his cronies rub our noses in it, and celebrate the fact that they get to decide who pays and who doesn’t pay.

If I learned anything from my study of the Soviet Union in the 1980s and 1990s it is this: You can’t exercise that type of power without using some bayonets. And as Boris Yeltsin observed “You can create a throne of bayonets, you just can’t sit on it for long.”

Make no mistake there are two classes in America: the powerful on their thrones and everyone else.

And everyone else pays for the privileges of the powerful throne sitters, while the powerful are only are required to leave a tip- and a very cheap tip at that.
