Sanctuary

A judge has just sanctioned the FBI raid of Jefferson's congressional office. Whether one agrees with the ruling or not, this statement by Chief U.S. District Judge Thomas F. Hogan made me laugh:
barring searches of lawmakers' offices would turn Capitol Hill into "a taxpayer-subsidized sanctuary for crime."
Would? Where has this guy been?

Yeah, would? I thought it was already a sanctuary for crime. Isn't what the Congress does to the People: legal theft?

Congress is an institution that is fundamentally corrupt. When the Founders constituted this great country of ours, service was a burden, taking people away from their daily businesses for very long periods of time. Today, it's a privilege to serve . . . or should I say that those who serve have privileges.

I paraphrase Wiston Chuchill: Never have so few done so much to so many!

Indeed. Or another rephrasing:

Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so few to so many.

Mike Malloy over on Air America made the observation that if the Supreme Court says it's OK to raid a Congressman's office, then why not raid the Oval Office? And the entire cabinet? Right?

Gotta run; about to hang myself with some mint floss.
