    Prescott Bush to over throw Roosevelt?

    The coup was aimed at toppling President Franklin D Roosevelt with the help of half-a-million war veterans. The plotters, who were alleged to involve some of the most famous families in America, (owners of Heinz, Birds Eye, Goodtea, Maxwell Hse & George Bush’s Grandfather, Prescott) believed that their country should adopt the policies of Hitler and Mussolini to beat the great depression.

    Doing some Googling, it seems this was investigated somewhat at the time.

    Seems like only yesterday that this was a fringe conspiracy theory... and here we are.

    I laugh at the "fact" that these types of things are actually documented.
    I would expect the average person with an average IQ to be smart enough NOT to document a coup.

    Good thing these guys were so stupid it didn't come about at that time (the coup)

    Bush jr is doing a pretty good job of seeing it through though. I guess he's not as dumb as he appears to be, or his gang has someone who is close to or exceeds genius.
