Scary thought

Back in 1979, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn roiled Harvard and the nation by advancing a shocking thesis; that it was scary to contemplate a nation whose only moral standard was the legal one.   Now with James Comey's second refusal to recommend an indictment of Hilliary Clinton for clear perjury, destruction of government records/obstruction of justice, mishandling of classified documents, and more, it strikes me that sans a moral and spiritual element to our standards, we also no longer have a legal standard to which to appeal.

This comes, of course, as no surprise to the victims of Fast & Furious, the IRS Scandal, Benghazi, and a whole bunch more.  Sigh.
