This is America. When stinking scum government blantantly throws garbage in the face of Americans and they beg for more. Marion Barry his celebrity transformed into international notoriety in January 1990, when Barry was videotaped smoking crack cocaine and arrested by FBI officials on drug charges. The arrest and subsequent trial precluded Barry seeking re-election, and Barry served six months in a federal prison. After his release, however, he was elected to the DC city council in 1992 and ultimately returned to the mayoralty in 1994, serving from 1995 to 1999.

America is failing not because of the garbage in political office but because of the American asshole citizen who put and keep them there,
tell it like it is
