My god, I never thought it would get THIS bad.

This is the solution of the former Editor of the Harvard Law Review...!?! Better watch what you say out there, and if you talk in your sleep, play loud music!

Reminds me of what Phillip Berrigan said, "IF voting made any difference it would be illegal", now we have special "prisons" for dissenters and other such "types", welcome to the beginning of the end for the Bill Of Rights.
