I'm of the era when a certain powerful individual also wielded the Internal Revenue Service as an effective weapon against any and all perceived enemies. The French, of course say: Le plus ca change, le plus c'est la meme chose. But I'm reminded of a lovely little Hebrew couplet that translates roughly:

The very same Miss/In a change of dress

Not only does it evoke the tendencies of governmental practices, but also lends an added eerily Hooveresque quality!
