Reading Dave Winer’s post, I can’t help but think that this quote could just as easily be about what has happened to South Africa (like this, for example).

Now you have to connect the dots. Find more meetings later in the summer and into the fall. Collusion is hardly the issue. Whether they broke the law, not the issue. They sold out our country. That should piss everyone off.

Such blatant corruption at the top doesn’t seem to be limited to so-called “Third World Countries” anymore.

America is still wading through misdirection and denials from its leadership. At some point it will find itself at a crossroads: either accept this blatant corruption or hold its leaders to account.

I am just as doubtful that the ANC will take real steps to remove the rot that has eaten away at South Africa as I am that Trump and his administration will be held accountable for their actions.

Suddenly Jacob Zuma just seems like a pioneer …

This discussion on Fox News towards the end of the week of 10 July 2017 is not what I expected from Fox News based on what I’ve read about the network’s apparent bias towards Trump and his administration:
