MR. FRIEDMAN: Well, David, it's been decimated. It's been decimated by everything from the gerrymandering of political districts to cable television to an Internet where I can create a digital lynch mob against you from the left or right if I don't like where you're going, to the fact that money and politics is so out of control--really our Congress is a forum for legalized bribery. You know, that's really what, what it's come down to. So I don't--I, I--I'm worried about this, it's why I have fantasized--don't get me wrong--but that what if we could just be China for a day? I mean, just, just, just one day. You know, I mean, where we could actually, you know, authorize the right solutions, and I do think there is a sense of that, on, on everything from the economy to environment. I don't want to be China for a second, OK, I want my democracy to work with the same authority, focus and stick-to-itiveness. But right now we have a system that can only produce suboptimal solutions.

Actually, I see it was just a few days ago. How time doesn’t fly when you’re marvelling at the psycopathic derangement of leftists.
Could be Korea lights the match.
How would he like it if one of us wanted to "be China" for a day and outlaw all liberal ideas - forever. What jerks.
Very possible. Another scenario: SEIU thugs, in their 'enthusiasm 'for Dear Leader, cross the line and kill someone in a spectacular manner. Won't be a big step from protest/intimidation on the front porch to lynch mobs and Molotov cocktails.
Datapoint: no arrests and not a word from the MSM on last week's little incident. That's more telling than anything else.
The Army and Air Force Reserves have "One weekend a month and two weeks a year".
That incident was the 0bama Civilian Security Force equivalent of "Weekend Drill".
The police escort is a clear example of the power of The State being used to protect the Brownshirts.
This trash is 2 pounds on a 3 pound trigger.......
