“Saved or created.” “Social justice.” “Aggregate demand.” Speakers of these and other phrases are asking me to ignore them, for they speak bullshit.

I'm concerned about the whole idea of carrying papers and always having to be able to prove your citizenship. That brings up some shades of some other regimes that weren't necessarily helpful to democracy.
Hagan acknowledged that he was one of three men who shot Malcolm X in front of a crowd of hundreds - including several of his young children - as the civil rights leader began a speech at Harlem's Audubon Ballroom on Feb. 21, 1965. Two other accomplices created a distraction in the audience, Hagan has said.Hmm. Now, who would be the best person to put to bed any debates and theories about the assassination? How about that sonofabitch they just let walk out the front door?!?!?!
But he said the two men convicted with him were not involved. They, too, maintained their innocence and were paroled in the 1980s. No one else has ever been charged, a fact that has perpetuated debate and theories surrounding the slaying.
