    Reading some threads of the "tin foil hat crowd" on here- one cant help but to marvel at the freedom of speech and expression that Americans have.

    Remember though

    H.L. Mencken, Born 1880 – Died 1956, was a journalist, satirist & critic. He wrote an editorial while working for the Baltimore Evening Sun, which appeared in the July 26, 1920 edition.


    "As democracy is perfected, the office of President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright moron."

    --- H.L. Mencken, The Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920

    But Mencken really said it better elsewhere-



    "If X is the population of these here United States, and Y is the degree of imbecility of the average American, then Democracy is the theory that X times Y is less than Y."
