For the past few years there has been a lot of talk in the US of A about creeping socialism and the idea that we might be becoming Norway or Denmark. Who would have thought that the actual role model would be Uganda or Yemen?
While San Francisco turns convicted felons, who also happen to be illegal immigrants, loose on their streets to rob, kill and maim citizens and while Chicago continues in its blood bath of gangland violence, we turn our attention to the Clinton emailgate ruling issued by James Comey, director of the FBI. After laying out his case, point by point, for several felony indictments he concluded by saying, “but no reasonable prosecutor would bring this to trial,” almost as if it were a hidden message to the Attorney General that he has her back and that inaction should be her future course in the matter.
Another example is the IRS and the fact that over 422 tapes containing 24,000 emails subpoenaed by Congress as part of the Lois Lerner probe were illegally destroyed. The reason given, “oops.”

Wherever there is government there is opportunity for corruption and it takes strong people of good will to keep it in check. But when that corruption reaches a level where it is no longer necessary to go to extreme measures to cover it up then we know that we, the people, have lost control over those we have elected or appointed to govern our country.
How far can we be from Papa Doc Duvalier and his Tontons Macoutes (Bogeymen) who terrorized and assassinated foes of Duvalier’s regime with the added duty of stopping people in the streets at random and demanding ten percent of all cash they might be carrying.
Weep for Lady Liberty, she is well into her death throes.
