I Wish i Could Say, "This Is Unbelievable!"

In a $2.7 trillion criminal enterprise like the government of the United States, it's hard to keep on top of things.

And I know that things have gotten so bad, that nothing shocks us anymore. Are they really that evil? Yes.

But I do reserve the right to be surprised by how the evil manifests itself. Not shocked, but surprised in the sense of not expecting the unexpected, in not knowing how they'll be evil.

Logan Ferree gives us another example. Is it "shocking" that John McCain would support the forced relocations of Navajo and Hopi families for the benefit of the largest strip-mining coal company in the world? Thinking about it a little, not really. But that doesn't mean you anticipate it. You can't. The enterprise is so vast, you don't know what is going to happen next. You don't even know what is happening right now.
