“… a great must-read book in which the author makes a chillingly credible case that America is far along the road from democracy to totalitarianism. What makes it so convincing is that it’s not a secret conspiracy; it’s all stuff you already know. ‘Invoke an external and internal threat…Establish secret prisons…Develop a paramilitary force …’ Wolf draws parallels to Hitler’s Germany, Mussolini’s Italy, and Pinochet’s Chile. Get the book. Read it.”So, how did it go trying to distribute all those books to the senators? We all know DC is about as far down the rabbit hole from reality as is possible these days. When Joe Lieberman is the “leader” on how we deal with Iran and Global Warming you know we’re in for some rough times ahead. Let’s say they did get distributed, but it took some doing as the Capitol Police didn’t take kindly to the books being handed out (it’s illegal apparently to “distribute” items to senators, even a good read on how to preserve our constitutional rights). Our favorite part of the story is this, which is her account of getting into one of the Senate buildings after being rejected entrance to another:
I left and walked over to the Dirksen Office Building, and almost made it through security there. My books got through the X-ray unmolested, but as I was walking away a warning came over the police radio about a suspicious woman, who may be from CODEPINK, trying to distribute material to Senators. A friendly woman cop named Tyra came after me. She was carrying her radio and I could hear nonstop chatter about me and CODEPINK. Exciting! A 65-year-old grandmother wearing pink is on the loose on Capitol Hill, with books!But, you should click here  for the full read yourself.
