Smedley Butler - My Hero

In addition to identifying war as a racket (see my previous post on the subject), did you know that Gen. Smedley Butler--almost singlehandedly--saved the U.S. from a fascist coup in the 1930s?

It was planned by a group of super Big Shots, like the honchos of the J.P. Morgan banking empire, Irénée duPont, and the bosses of GM and several other major corporations.

Here's an excellent documentary from The History Channel, The Plot to Overthrow FDR.

Bet ya never heard about this in history class!
