I enjoy schadenfreude as much as the next misanthrope but even so I am amazed that progressives never grasp the following political realities: The government doesn't always know best, governments do not always act in the best interests of the community, and governments are heavily influenced by special interests. Further, if you bitch about government's conduct or oppose what they're try to do they will use whatever means are at hand to crush you. The progs listed in the news story probably never thought this kinda shit would ever happen to them. Then it did. Bottom line: Government is force.
