Dry Bones: Snake Oil Salesmen

"Snake oil is an expression that originally referred to fraudulent health products or unproven medicine but has come to refer to any product with questionable or unverifiable quality or benefit. By extension, a snake oil salesman is someone who knowingly sells fraudulent goods or who is themselves a fraud, quack, charlatan, or the like."

I look at what is transpiring and I still cannot believe it. How did it come to this that the greatest county on Earth has such a difficult time waking up from under the spell of these snake oil salesmen?  With all the creativity that has come out of the US in the last hundred years, from the Wright brothers to the Silicon Valley, it has shown incredible inability to see through these charlatans.
