    Does anyone else feel that J. Edgar Hoover is far too maligned and that his reputation has been slandered by the far left and the media? I think hoover was one of the most patriotic guys in the last century and he was a great lawman. Te far left and media tear him down because he went after MLK, who was a communist and very anti American, and for being against the Hippies. It's very lead to see how the media destroyed his legacy. The guy loved America.

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    Hoover had zero respect for peoples constitutional rights, the end does not justify the means, Hoover bad.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    A bit light in the loafers, that might explain Squeeldrivers unnatural attraction to him.

    Thems good but I discovered something new. Get the green seedless grapes and then freeze them. Dump them into a glass and cover with seltzer. Drink and crunch. Delicious.
