Crimes of the Bush dynasty

From the article:

THE GREAT myth about the United States is that we live in a “meritocracy,” where the “best and brightest” will rise to the top, and anyone can make it with intelligence and hard work. The slightest examination of the Bush family tree proves that all this is a lie.

2. If I were at a Memorial service,

I would not interrupt it, but I understand why some would.

Proper understanding of actual history, as opposed to mythical history, is critical. Reagan was similarly mythologized, and we all suffer for that.

3. The family? My favorite? Use the google internet tubes to learn about Prescott Bush and his attempt

to take over the U.S. government.

He should have had his ball cut off and been hanged from a tree.
