This is just a quickie for any Greg Palast readers. He's been posting about his parents recently and it's quite clear the apple didn't fall far from the tree. Regarding one of California's more recent primaries, Palast states, "I interviewed my parents for BBC in 2008, as he was one of thousands that had his vote stolen in a San Diego, CA election. As a veteran who wasn't going to let me be drafted to Vietnam, he made this connection between voting and war." Following up with a clip of his father dropping some very insightful social advice, "Ballots and wars go together. If you have bad ballots, you have bad wars. It's the same guys."
This is why we value the elderly. Their advice is invaluable!
