    The History Channel did a special on it a few years back. It was very cool inside was a 4-star hotel resort and underneath the hotel is a steal door built in the side of a grassy hill and leading to an underground bunker. It was built for the nuclear war that never happened.

    Yeah, as a comedian once pointed out, these are the same people that built those underground bunkers for the president and all the important people in government. But for the general public they sent civil defense workers to our elementary schools and showed us films called duck and cover. And in these films they showed atom bombs going off over a large city, blowing buildings to pieces, and you would see trucks and buses flying through the air smashing into things, trees being ripped out of the ground and winds blowing house completely away.....
    but inside the local elementary school, the children were hiding safely, under their desks. singing love songs and writing poetry. They actually had me convinced that I could survive an atom bomb's fireball by hiding under wood.

    Burt the Turtle is a pretty convincing guy. Nice video! I love it.

    burt the turtle allowed me to sleep safe and sound at night. And then it was comforting knowing if the air raid siren came on and everyone started to panic, all "I" had to do was follow burt's advice and duck and cover, right there at the curb, and I would be safe. No need to panic, everything would be ok.

    Those were the good ole' days when Americans trusted their government. Louis Black (the comedian) makes a lot of good points in his political rants and raves which are very funny. I'm somewhat fascinated with history during the cold war. It amazes me how the government could go leaders like Dwight Eisenhower and Franklin D. Roosevelt to leaders like Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. It is almost like we have our heads completely up our rear ends.
