Welcome to the Fundamentally Transformed "United" States of Amerika
- Department of Injustice Style -
We live in a bizarro world where up is down and down is up -- where left is right and right is racist -- where it's okay to call someone "intolerant" while calling for their censorship -- where it's a double murder when killing a pregnant woman but it's okay for that woman and a doctor to murder her unborn baby -- where we fine people for growing their own food -- where we suspend a student for sticking up for a classmate against a bully -- and it's okay to use snipers, helicopters, tazers and attack dogs on a family rancher in an effort to protect a turtle.
Our fundamentally transformed Amerika is where government officials, whose actions are absolutely repugnant to the Constitution, will completely ignore the outrage against them, or where they, in the most extreme case with pressure from the people rising up in anger, will merely resign to assuage the discontent.
Is there such a thing as "consequences" anymore?
Is resignation enough? When someone oversees one the most powerful and intimidating federal agencies of our "American" government during a time when it's policy to target groups based on their political beliefs was made public - is it okay just to leave office a month early? Is that punishment enough? By the way, has anyone heard from Steven Miller of the IRS lately? Or is he just off somewhere enjoying his retirement with a full government pension laughing as he gleefully takes his retirement checks to the bank each month?
More recently, though, after the announcement that Attorney General Eric Holder was resigning, a friend recently posted, "Finally, Eric Holder is being held accountable!"
Wait a minute. "Accountable?" Is that really what "accountability" is all about?
ac·count·a·ble - (əˈkountəbəl), adjective -
(of a person, organization, or institution) required or expected to justify actions or decisions; responsible.
ac·count·a·bil·i·ty - (əˌkountəˈbilitē), noun -
the fact or condition of being accountable; responsibility.
re·spon·si·bil·i·ty - (riˌspänsəˈbilətē), noun -
the state or fact of having a duty to deal with something or of having control over someone.
the state or fact of being accountable or to blame for something.
Here's an infographic from the Daily Signal with a timeline of Eric Holder controversies.

I fear for this nation as more and more of our man-made laws seem diametrically opposed to God's Law.
"For it is written, I live, saith the Lord, and every knee shall bow to me, and all tongues shall confess unto God. So then everyone of us shall give accounts of himself to God."
— Romans 14:11-12, from the 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
