Dragnet: "Don't try to build a new country. Make this one work."

Those hippies are poseurs. Much like today.

The last series of Dragnet got real preachy but there was some amazing stuff said in them, great speeches given by Joe and his fellow cops. It was less a cop procedural than a chance for the team to air their grievances and give voice to an entire generation baffled by the outrage kids were yelling while in the greatest comfort and privilege in human history.

I'm an Australian, and this Rings true all over the developed world.

I'm guessing that Lorne is one of those tea partiers we keep hearing about. Americas new hippies.

And we have a winner: "I will fundamentally change America."

And so he has. For the worse. Yet those hurt the most by his 'ideas' voted for him based on his melanin content. But that's racist. Yes, and so were the election results in a lot of precincts.
