  •  You are far too optimistic about Americans (3+ / 0-)

    and their ability to recognize BS when it's fed to them.

    PT Barnum was just unusually outspoken in his willingness to let the public know that he had no respect for them. Heritage is relying on the same ignorance and tribalism to keep its party going.

    •  I don't think even 1 in 20 Americans (6+ / 0-)

      would even recognize the name. And even then they might think it had to do with maintenance of civil war battlefields.

      For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life. - Albert Camus
