    And why? Because Corruption and an abscense of "Love thy Neighbor" abound in society and has for a Millenia. Remember the crowds chanting "Give us Barabus" ?

    Joel, I like it a lot, way too accurate, way too often. I would that a thousand guilty go free before one innocent be convicted. There is an eternal justice. The accuracy of the quote begins to explain how the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land has been given such power by the sheeple.

    There is no money in clearing the innocent -- but there sure is for clearing the guilty! Case in point, pay attention to whom Presidents grant pardons during their tenure.
