It is a Kosh'ism, from Babylon 5, basically talking about anything where the momentum is too strong for anyone to really stop it now.

In this case, it is the ability for just about anyone with a phone able to record an incident around them. With the new quadrotor drones becoming so cheap, and so useful, aerial surveillance is pretty much a done deal. The government rules are going to be pretty much useless.

As for Zellerbach, he moved a couple of signs for heaven's sake, and then lost. It happens so often, but the only difference is that someone caught it on video. Just like most of these accusations, it will just never be prosecuted.

Charlie, what do you mean it is too late, do you think it is too late to stop big brother from snooping into our private life or do you mean it is too late to force the atty general to prosecute the crime committed by Zellerbach, or too late for something else???

The avalanche has started. It is too late for the pebbles to vote...

As libertarians we must be very wary of gov spies in the air that have little or no oversight, however the video taken of the Riverside district attys crime, taking down his opponants campaign sign was a good thing. I am sure he did not know he would be caught jn the act. This was in april and the latest info is the state of Calif has the incident "under review". How long does it take to "review" a video tape??? Is the atty gen corrupt? Could it be that Zellerbachs friend Stan Sniff is obstructing justice? Do I smell a rat?
