Do you 'own' stock? Do you 'own' any mutual funds? IRA, 401K, bonds, treasuries? Bernie "mutual masturbation" Madoff rookie card?

Dollars?

It would have been nice to have had a trial. Years ago, when I was called for jury duty, the judge went on at length to explain that a fair trial was not the exclusive right of the defendant. We all have a right to get at the truth. I think we've been cheated.

Bob,

Trials are so inconvenient. They tend to produce evidential trails that lead one to conclusions not merely about what WAS done by the guilty party, but also about what WAS NOT done by those charged with the responsibilities to monitor and preempt the criminal acts. Can't have that. Might tend to lead to skepticism towards the free market religion so ardently espoused by our bi-partisan elites.

Large numbers of people will tell you that they voted for x over y just because they perceived him to be more authentic and likeable, which never ceases to exasperate me.

And the war doesn't seem to matter either, liberal protestations notwithstanding. I've told so many Obama boosters that his politics are essentially the same as the less charismatic Kerry's, only to encounter befuddlement.

You know, I'd be surprised if Russian mafia and narco-traffickers vote, or even care who's running.A trial would have provided great entertainment though.

Bob: I believe in " If YOU get charged, YOU get a JURY Trial. Innocent People COMMONLY plead guilty because of TORTURE, FEAR, or INTIMIDATION. These NEVER give the TRUTH. THAT'S WHY WE have JURY Trials. To FIND THE TRUTH. I believe guilty pleas should be entered in the body of evidence in a JURY Trial. The Defendant maybe LYING.
