The piece ain't picture-perfect, but it certainly takes some trouble to collate and weave the incidents and directions of a growing feudalism nourished by a neo-conservative patriotism that encourages fear and supports the trickle-down economics whose arguments cannot and do not hold water.

The word "shame" is the only one I can think of and simply uttering it makes me feel like a white-whine pussy... the kind who, I guess, may eventually take up the necessary arms and ... lose as scheduled.
