Someone on food stamps can't afford a lawyer. Wall street can hire the best lawyers. Justice is unequal in this country.

Does anyone else find it highly disturbing that some of the most best political journalism these days is coming from Rolling Stone? That's kind of messed-up.

I actually don't have a problem with the sentence. She had four prior drug convictions and she was able to pay the money back so I detect more than just lieing on the application. Having said that, you would have expected to see more of the bankster fraudsters going to prison, but no they get bonuses.
