    $12 million for 55 convictions? For that much money she could have set them all up for life in the Netherlands where their habit could have been tolerated and no trouble to anyone and she could have gone after people doing actual dangerous things. Like, say, imbibing that completely legal mind altering subtance known as alchohol and driving.

    Why would the federal government even have an office with that name?

    Isn’t violence against women (and everyone else) already illegal in every state?

    VAWA funds being diverted to conservative anti-obscenity groups under the rhetoric of protecting women.

    Who cares? Wasn’t this money destined to be wasted anyway?

    A democratic controlled congress controls the purse strings so, a least in this instance, there may be an effective response to the bonehead government.
