MELLON’S MELON WASTED – Will Rogers Gloomy As to Fate of Treasury Surplus. BEVERLY HILLS, California, July 3 – Mr. Mellon has skimped and saved and got together 185 millions over and above what Congress nicked him for. Now they are all arguing over what to do with it, but nobody has ever suggested applying it on our national debt, which is over 30 billion. Sixty percent of all our taxes go toward interest on all our various debts, national, state, town and county. But they will take this little dab and try to buy some party votes with it in the way of lower taxes. You wouldn’t see Mellon doing that if it applied to his personal affairs. He would get his debt paid off before he started handling anybody’s anything. But that’s just why so many of our individuals are so much richer than our government. Yours, WILL ROGERS (The Spokesman-Review 04JUL1929 1) (link)
Good reading: Gangsters vs Nazis. Did you know that Jewish organized mischief gave as good in These States as their relatives and friends got in the Old World? No this is not a scholarly tome with footnotes sprinkled everywhere, but more of a fun read in a sort of pulp fiction noir vernacular. Fans of Babylon Berlin will recognize the foreign confrontations transplanted to American soil as Christian National Socialism spread like wildfire all over Europe right after Christian Prohibitionism spread all over America. $16 from Amazon Kindle store.
