    Almost unbearable. This man tried, and very nearly succeeded, to create a fascist dictatorship in place of our democracy. His theft of public funds and flagrant homosexual affair with his longtime aide, along with his alcoholism and complusive gambling, left him vulnerable, and the organized crime families aka the Mafia blackmailed Hoover, ordering him around like a servant.

    Hoover hated JFK, and the Mafia hated RFK, so Hoover helped them get away with assassinating a president. Probably with assassinating RFK as well....and maybe MLK?

    Nixon and Hoover hated one another because they couldn't agree on which one should be our new dictator. God help us if they had cooperated!

    Ay ye ye! And yet, Hoover is the only civilian who had been given an American state funeral. Everyone else who got one was a president.


    I need brain bleach!

    Your thoughts?
    Hoover and Reagan worked well together.

    Ever see the 1960's/1970's tv show "The FBI", starring Ephraim Zimbalist Jr.?

    (What a name! What a gorgeous man!)

    And meanwhile, IRL, Hoover is killing Black Panthers, etc. in COINTELPRO! And the fucking CIA is peddling crack in all the American ghettos, so as to make money to buy guns for the "Contras"!

    Both horror stories are reasonably well described in Wikipedia.

    Point is, Ephraim was the picture of American manhood, oozing integrity from every pore. Public relations for a gang of murderers and thugs that OUR tax dollars supported.

    It boggles the mind.

    Ms. Labrea,

    Didn't Hoover die 8 years before President Reagan was in office?

    LOL, love your liberal visceral knee jerking.

    Ms. Madeline,

    Not only that, the illuminati, man never went to the moon, and the world is run by lizard-human hybrids.

    Indeed, right when Reagan was governor of California (1967-75).
