Thanks, and Keep Telling Them.
(Happy 4th of July. Now Give US Our Country Back!)
now that's walking the talk. Sorry I couldn't come up with anything less hokey.)
Now, I've said this before, but I'm going to say it again anyway. If you haven't read John Dean's book, Worse Than Watergate and/or Richard Clark's Against All Enemies you absolutely must. Both. They shine the light on many ugly truths and will put many things about this president and his administration in perspective. Read them, I command you! It's important. Especially if you think that Bush and his ilk are doing all the right things for the right reasons. (And these are only two of many books that should be on the reading list for this subject.)
Since I'm in the cliché mode, let me finish my pontification with this truth: Knowledge is power. Given the condition of willful ignorance being exhibited by the masses in this country, it's no wonder we continue to be powerless while tens of thousands die for the self-serving ideals of a priveledged few, and more and more of our inalienable rights disentegrate and blow away with the wind.
Now, obey me and go do some reading! (Except for you, and you, and you, and you over there on the left, you, too. I'm not talking to you. You're all smart and diligent, you read lots of books, you don't watch reality television, and you know a lot more about all this stuff than I do. So, carry on.)
BTW, Nixon was actually reading another book, which he said was even better than Dean's. I don't recall the title, but I have his e-mail address and will ask about it when I send him the picture I took. I will report this when I get the info.)
