You Want The Truth?

Are You Even Sure You Can Handle It?
by The Old Hippie Because This Is Your Truth.

{-The Way Many Picture Me-}

“Follow This Dime” is an excerpt from a book by Thomas Frank concerning ‘a how-to history of the conservative era -- specifically how to destroy a government, leave Americans in the lurch, and enrich yourselves all at the same time...’

“Washington is the city where the scandals happen.  Every American knows this, but we also believe, if only vaguely, that the really monumental scandals are a thing of the past, that the golden age of misgovernment-for-profit ended with the cavalry charge and the robber barons, at about the same time presidents stopped wearing beards.”
