Once more…….

THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE IS A PROBLEM. DESPITE EXTENDING THE INFLUENCE OF PROSECUTORS INTO INVESTIGATIONS AND JUDICIAL DETERMINATIONS VIA PLEA BARGAINS, THE ABSOLUTE IMMUNITY FROM SUPERVISION AND REVIEW THAT CAME WITH ITS ORIGINAL MINISTERIAL (CEREMONIAL) ROLE PERSISTS. IN OTHER WORDS, THE DOJ HAS BEEN TURNED INTO THE BASTION OF AUTONOMY, CONTRARY TO THE PRINCIPLE OF CHECKS AND BALANCES.

MOREOVER, IN TOLERATING THIS AUTONOMY, THE POTUS HAS BECOME COMPLICIT IN AN ILLEGITIMATE ARRANGEMENT AND THE RESULT IS AN UN-CONSTITUTIONAL CONFEDERATION. SO WHEN PUSH CAME TO SHOVE, BARR TURNED ON TRUMP BECAUSE PROSECUTORIAL AUTONOMY IS MORE IMPORTANT TO THE SUPREMACIST THAN ANY PERSON.

What’s not to appreciate?

Merchants

Why do modern merchandizers assume a purchase is an invitation to a social relationship? Is it because so many purchases are made to compensate for some social deficit? I am reminded of Don Harrod who had spent half his life collecting stuff and then lost all interest inhis things when he got connected to his grandsons.
