Don't follow leaders, watch your parking meters

The worst government is the most moral. One composed of cynics is often very tolerant and humane. But when fanatics are on top there is no limit to oppression.----H.L. Mencken
It hit me hard today when I saw an ad on the internet for a show about Abraham Lincoln which had the tag line: The Real Lincoln. Honest Abe. I was again reminded about how well the state run education system and lap dog media have propagandized and glorified some of the vilest human trash to ever grace the world stage.

Most Russians have come to terms with the fact that Stalin was a blood thirsty monster and so was Lenin, and boy no one can let the poor Germans ever forget the sordid truth about Adolf Hitler, lest they repeat his evil mistakes again!
Meanwhile here in the U.S. morally corrupt killers and a long string of lawless gangsters in national leadership have had their names enshrined in the collective memory as heroes and victors in the cause of truth, justice and the American way. We don't seem to go in much for moral introspection or digging for the historical truth concerning this nation's tarnished legacy of deceit, death and the physical devastation of vast tracts of productive land worldwide, which, by the way, is going on at this very moment.
Ours is easily the most ignorant and propaganda ridden country under centralized federal control in the entire world. China is virtually libertarian by comparison.
I'm pretty sure that Jefferson wouldn't recognize the place any more.

Murderous dictator and usurper of the Constitution.

Immoral warlord, the killer of millions of innocent foreign civilians through indiscriminate aerial bombings of large urban centers in Europe and Asia and the illegal incarceration and theft of property from Japanese Americans, who were shipped to concentration camps.

A self-serving liar and pompous moralist who brought untold death and misery to the 20th century through his interventionist meddling, the effects of which we still reel from almost a century hence from his tainted reign.

First to aggressively invade and wantonly plunder a sovereign nation, setting the stage for the dictatorship of Lincoln and the current border problems of today resulting from the un-natural frontier that was created when the U.S. federal government stole one-third of Mexico at the point of swords, bayonets and cannon.

A backwoods pug ugly responsible for unleashing horrific violence and poison on innocent civilians and starting a war that needlessly took 57,000 American lives for absolutely nothing.

Corrupt and out of control grafter who presided over the deliberate genocide of the remaining native tribes of the American West and the first large scale relocation and concentration of said natives on government run "reservations". Hitler and Stalin took much inspiration from this efficient method of dealing with "undesirables".

Semi-illiterate born again dry alcoholic ex-cokehead warlord who is presiding over the demise and collapse of the American Imperium from within and without. He is directly responsible for the deaths of many thousands of innocent people and has devastated two sovereign countries with aggressive warfare and occupation. During his two terms of office alone, the feds have borrowed more money from foreign governments and banks than was borrowed by all other American administrations put together, from 1776 to 2000. More debt added to the national burden in his eight years than in the previous 224. That's some legacy.

Let's hope he is the last of a line but I really sort of doubt it, unless of course he ends up bleeding the Beast to death, which is a distinct possibilty. One can always have hope.

Democracy, too, is a religion. It is the worship of jackals by jackasses. ----H.L. Mencken

Caption suggestion for that last photo:

"Look, Mama Babs, I get to play army men with real-live humans! If they all get blown up (and we're workin' on it), will you buy me a new set? Aww, c'mon, Mom! Just put it on your credit card!"

Nice rogue's gallery. And I've said it before and I'll say it again - Lincoln got what was coming to him.
