The weird cyclical nature of history.

Donald Trump meets Roy Cohn
Roy Cohn introduces Donald Trump to Roger Stone
Roger Stone helps Donald Trump become President
Roger Stone is indicted; Trump cries out "Where is my Roy Cohn?"
Trump appoints Bill Barr as Attorney General
Bill Barr, in the fashion of Roy Cohn, interferes with the sentencing of....Roger Stone.


It's just the same characters in different situations, over and over and over again.

4. If they would get sent to prison and stay there, the cycle would never exist

Accused with less access to money and powerful individuals get sent to prison a lot more often than these snakes do. How many times do we read in the news about how someone after decades is released from prison because they were found innocent? Those individuals lacked enough resources to defend their innocence. How many Watergate Nixon aides wound up in the Reagan/Bush/W. Bush white houses? Rumsfeld and Cheney alone went on to have such hits as "911", "Gulf Wars 1 & 2", and Pakistan's hiding and protection of Osama Bin Laden.

5. "Hegel remarks somewhere that all great world-historic facts and personages appear, so to speak,

twice. He forgot to add: the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce"

The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte

6. It never ends

Raygun does the supply side shuffle tax breaks for the rich, no trickle down.
W does the same damn thing.
Dump does the same damn thing.
Now Dump wants do it again.
Never any trickle down, We the People never get what these crooks promise.
And steadily dragging down the economy.
The biggest con in history.
