No one likes to admit they have been duped.
If George Washington had known the swamp that bears his name would be turned
into a political cesspool, he would have stayed in the British Army.
If Thomas Jefferson had known his efforts to further the cause of race relations.
in a future generation meant that he would be called a racist, he would be turning over in his grave.
If John Hancock knew the government he was risking his life and fortune to create was
going to go into the insurance business in competition with later colleagues, would he have signed on the dotted line?
If Samuel Clemens and Will Rogers were alive today, we would have the benefit of their
horse sense to expose the super-dupers of our time.
Maybe the only thing to come out of all this is Samuel Adams makes a fairly good beer.
