the older I get the worse it seems
Remember the Texas oilman back in the sixties that wanted rich people to have more votes than poor people
I been thinking about hollywood technocolor historical epics, Spartacus and Marcus Aureilus. In spartacus the politicains give lip service to the gods, that is Bushies greatest threat, he is a true believer just like Osama, the last scene in Marcus where the army puts the empire up for sale at a auction.
