On 4/1 dadofdivas wrote: This book takes on a whole new approach to looking at why things continually happen over and over again in Washington. While I did not agree with Thomas' opinions on many aspects, it still was interesting looking at how he analyzed things and looked at America. The book is pointed and blunt and you see ...
