  •  the lesson (none)
    for me is that "scandal fatigue" is BS: America has NEVER had a scandal that amounted to making real legislative change to the root problem of how these operators for the military-industrial complex. Even Watergate itself failed to really untap what was happening: E Howard Hunt was involved in the JFK murder, mark my words, and Nixon knew that Watergate might dig up what he called all "that Bay of Pigs stuff"....Nixon called the Warren Commission the biggest hoax in history. I am becoming tinfoil more for a reason: clearly America has never really had a scandal that shook the foundations. Every potential scandal since Watergate has effectively been diverted or failed to address the fundamental issues of how corruption in Washington, rather than lessening, now flourishes more than ever. I mean this administration is the literal and figurative refuse/outgrowth of almost 50 years worth of back-room top-secret cold-war bullshit.
