Who Killed Martin Luther King?
Do you remember Dick Nixon on tape about the Warren report into JFK's assasination- "That it was the biggest hoax ever perpetuated on the American people"?

They Lie - You Buy (it)
Now this same government (Remember Iraq-WMDs) is saying that they need 700 billion to save the economy. The details are sketchy as to what that money buys.
