Yeah, because you know, Biden has been way extreme all his life, what with his "Eat babies" campaign.


Look at the charges against Aaron Swartz for what the actual actions were. The reason the charges are being posthumously dropped because they know it was a gigantic overreach and they were just going for a show-trial for both lobbyists and the public. Prosecutors, lobbyists and certain politicians want this to go away, quickly.

To this day, no one has been prosecuted for crashing the world economy with bad debt and mortgage trading schemes. Most of the actors involved are multi-billion dollar corporations.

A guy making a political statement with little to no access to resources gets 13 felony charges (some completely irrelevant to his actual actions) against him for what is traditionally misdemeanor offenses.

Nothing like an informed post to make me smile
