A president who was almost certainly poisoned by his wife before he could be arrested for mass corruption (Harding), another who literately did nothing... all day every day... refused to go anywhere except on vacation, all this inactivity causing the first hints of the great depression... yet the public loved him (Coolridge).
This was also the period called at the time "the great red scare" one of the first times that America went on its periodical habit of seeing reds under every bed. This was at a time of anarchist bombings - lots of them, which didn't help matters. Things came to head when a crowd dragged an office worker at a socialist organization called the "Industrial Workers of the World" out into the street beat him half to death, and cut off his genitals. Pleading to be put out of his misery, they hung him from a river bridge and shot him... The coroner ruled the death suicide and no charges of any type were even considered. This a few days after a young coloured boy fell asleep floating on lake Michigan and washed up on an all white beach... he was immediately stoned to death by the people on the beach. Needless to say, no charges were brought. Still at least it couldn't happen there today... unless you live in "Shitkicker Texas" or "Swampbottom Alabama."
No offence John P, most of you are just fine.
