People who live in Glass houses...

So, when I mention a glass house, what is the obvious obtuse choice?

Well, Carter Glass was an unreconstructed rebel.

He was on the cover of TIME (June 9, 1924)

An obvious Southern Democrat (now a Republican ideologue), he was weaned on a pickle! He was "the Senate's last surviving member born in the antebellum South, Glass unapologetically fought to retain a society in which property-owning, white males sat at the top of the pyramid."

Carter Glass earned his fame by pursuing his ultimately successful goal of denying the right to vote to as many black Virginia as possible. As he told one reporter, “Discrimination! Why that is exactly what we propose. To remove every negro voter who can be gotten rid of, legally, without materially impairing the numerical strength of the white electorate.”

Runs on the banks were threatening the inherited wealth of the landed gentry! FDIC ended that! He's the Glass in the Glass–Steagall Act!

And his much coveted "Glass" mansion is where Jerry Fall-well died. (and his fatness is buried in the front yard)

We can't fault him for having fat friends...

This $100,000 gold certificate is "chump change."

Glass appears on the half-valued $50,000 Treasury note!

And now you know why the Xtian fat-man wanted to live in a Glass house!

People who live in Glass houses should not stow thrones!

"In one of those truly bizarre things that you really have to see to believe, multimillionaire “Reverend” Sun Myung Moon was crowned messiah on March 13, 2004 in the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, DC. Attending the ceremony were apparently seventy-one congressmen, including two senators, dozens of ambassadors to the United States, and various other figures from the religious and political establishments of the nation."
