Imagine knowing for weeks, maybe years, that the authorities suspected you of pedophilia ... knowing an investigation was being launched ... and still keeping pics of underage girls in your f'ing house! The sense of immunity from accountability among the rich is gobsmacking.

I keep seeing these vague warnings from conservatives, "oh, Epstein is going to take out some of your people too." Uh. If this case results in a smoking crater where the insular class of rich US men used to be, I will dance a GD jig, thanks.

Take them all out, every one of them, and replace them with women. I can't think of a single development that might do more to pull this country out of the shit spiral it's in.
