The first smear campaign.
So now it just reads “gibberish”… how appropriate.
I was born during the years that the people of the USA finally realized what a bunch of lying plutocrats (and their toadies) were “in charge” of things. This is the result, six decades on.
It doesn’t matter which side you are on; the answer is the same. One of the biggest legal (when they have to be) classes of thieve consists of politicians. They get to make the rules for the rest of us, with specific exemptions for themselves. They get to set their own pay scale, and you can bet that it is higher than most of ours! They get fantastic fringe benefits, many for life, while our pensions and medical are being cut or eliminated! Then think of their investment opportunities. They are having insider information thrown at them from all sides, not to mention the opportunities for graft and bribes. Hmmm— Think I’ll run for mayor, then work my way up!
