Congress: Be Our Hero. Give Justice Back To Us

I've been following the story of the firing of the U. S. Attorneys since Josh Marshall and his team began covering it around the first of the year at Talking Points Memo and TPM Muckraker. It dismayed me to see this attempt to subvert Justice so that, long after this administration leaves office, it would still be in the hands of those who would use it dispense favors and punishment based on how it profits those in power rather than a standard of proof based on the merits of the evidence.

This is not only a bi-partisan issue it is a Universal issue.

For what do you get when you remove Justice's blindfold and put out her eyes so that she is not only blind to the social position of the one standing before her but also to the evidence of their guilt or innocence, and put her hand into the hand of one who serves at the pleasure of Power?

You have Justice held hostage, her sword wielded by Will to Power, and her scales by Self-Aggrandizement.

And a People subject to despair and a Nation to Chaos.

So when this petition landed in my email today, I signed it:

Go watch the two short videos by Robert Greenwald and then tell Congress: Be our Hero. Rescue Justice and give her back to the people.
