When the rich strangle you to death, they do it with velvet gloved hands, words and deeds.

I caught some flack for speaking the truth about the Supreme Court Justices who voted for McCutcheon. I called them traitorous, psychopathic scum. No-one denied that truth, but some said my words were immature, or too harsh. 

It is ONLY by calling out the filthy evil of these men and their actions that we can wake people up. These are not nice, civil people. They are vile, ugly criminals who hide beneath the black robes and the history and custom of the court. But they are reptilian predators, feeding on the ninetynine percent. 

It is very common, when someone breaks through the silence, breaks through the accepted, comfortable way to talk about the situation, to call truth-tellers crazy, childish, rude, dangerous, terrorist, whatever words work to marginalize their truth message. 

The Obama administration has leaders like Cass Sunstein, who have advocated the use of sock puppets to disrupt and distort critics. 

We need more talk describing the supreme court five for what they are.
