    So they get one powerful person out of how many who get away with crimes?

    dear slapshot,

    nothing
    NOTHING
    is ever perfect
    not all men will be held accountable
    not all the rich and powerful will answer for crimes they have committed

    only when you
    yes, YOU, slapshot
    begin to enjoy the things that are good and just will the entirety of humanity begin to heal

    go eat a puck, schmuck

    You're quite the mouth artist....Doesn't impress me a bit, maybe your so called internet friends will be impressed with you.

    The rich and powerful will always get away with things because they have the money to do so. Except that FACT as it is a part of life.

    Some take it a bit to far as he did, thought he was a God!

    You eat the puck with your gums rookie! 😛 😉

    Hasn't this thread just disproven that?

    "The rich and powerful will 'always' get away with things..."

    Harvey didn't. Your point is moot.

    Actually your point is moot....they get one out of how many, and you think something has been accomplished? You have an odd way of thinking, Sir!

    Look how many fell on the sword for Trump or he wouldn't be running for a second term....Then you tell me money isn't power...how do you think he got in the position to begin with?

    I may start calling you cocky instead of rookie, would you like that? 😛 😉 You do UNDERSTAND the meaning of 'Cocky'?

    In Debates he recently said that intelligence had nothing to do with being smart.

    Once upon a time, there was an old man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach every morning before he began his work. Early one morning, he was walking along the shore after a big storm had passed and found the vast beach littered with starfish as far as the eye could see, stretching in both directions.

    Off in the distance, the old man noticed a small boy approaching. As the boy walked, he paused every so often and as he grew closer, the man could see that he was occasionally bending down to pick up an object and throw it into the sea. The boy came closer still and the man called out, “Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?”

    The young boy paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean. The tide has washed them up onto the beach and they can’t return to the sea by themselves,” the youth replied. “When the sun gets high, they will die, unless I throw them back into the water.”

    The old man replied, “But there must be tens of thousands of starfish on this beach. I’m afraid you won’t really be able to make much of a difference.”

    The boy bent down, picked up yet another starfish and threw it as far as he could into the ocean. Then he turned, smiled and said, “It made a difference to that one!”

    ***

    This one powerful person is a start - it made a difference to me and a lot of other people.
