It's an unfortunate fact that this issue is not just limited to the retail sale of drums.....it's far more widespread than that.....and far more widespread than just the US. I'm not convinced the problem can be pin pointed back to one single presidential administration either. Corporates have far more control over this than any government could ever hope to.
True. And again, I apologize for the semi-political tilt. But the Carter presidency gave rise to the Reagan era because things needed fixin', and for the most part, he did. Isn't it funny how America is on the verge of doing the same thing again?
OK. End of political tilt. Resume your normal discussion. That'll be my last political posting. Carry on.
