The return of "Honest Services Fraud"

Neither Congress nor the president ever seem to learn anything. The U.S. Supreme Court recently struck down the "Honest Services Fraud" statute because it was too vague. So what do the clowns in Washington do? They look to create an even MORE expansive and vague law.

Apparently, the government is set to imprison thousands of business owners and managers for having the effrontery of being unsuccessful during the government-caused depression. And I guarantee that the return of this horrible law will create even more uncertainty, which in turn will help lengthen the depression.

Here is my recent commentary on the subject on Lew Rockwell's page.

Well, of COURSE that's what they'd do. Did anyone really expect anything else out of these criminal assclowns?

By the way, it's actually the Amoricon sheeple who never seem to learn anything. After all, they keep sending these pieces of excrement back to Rome-on-the-Potomac despite their obviously abysmal track records.
