"The Age of Shoddy"

If your meat is rotten, your blankets shabby, and fire arms so over priced, I'll let you know what it is. Corruption, where the rich want to get richer without spending any money. Our troops are receiving bad blankets and uniforms because of this and it could happen to us too.
"“The individual who makes the most money—no matter how—and spends the most—no matter for what—is considered the greatest man. . . . The world has seen its iron age, its silver age, its golden age, and its brazen age. This is the age of shoddy.”
