“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

RIP....Dennis Hopper

Dennis Hopper passed away yesterday from prostate cancer. He epitomized the 60's leading into the 70's, the drug culture, free spirit, all of it, and regardless of whether you think that's good or bad, the guy was a talented, iconic actor. My favorite films of his were of course Easy Rider, which he directed and starred in, and Apocalypse Now. Here's a short clip from that movie.....

Hopper wrung more out of every scene than any actor I know. Hollywood's a little shallower for having lost Dennis Hopper.
