If there are people out there that don't believe that the good ole US
of A is NOT a cesspool of corruption and cover-ups....then they are
naive and I worry about them! I don't let the corruption and cover-ups
worry me....although I find it disgusting that a neighborhood in
Baldwin County, AL drank raw sewage for MONTHS because no one would
listen to them.....but I lose no sleep over unexplained big booms and
the White House's antics.....
