H L Mencken was a journalist and pundit who knew what he was talking about.
“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable.”—H. L. Mencken
He was also responsible for a quote Ace of Spades keeps in its masthead:
"Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats."
The Capitol Cops will visit you if you send an email with that quote to your Congress-slime.
