      Do you remember, your President Nixon?
      Do you remember, the bills you have to pay?
      Or even yesterday?

        FDR and Lincoln, both oversaw and guided our country out of tremendous conflict.. For modern presidents, Clinton and Obama. My family did well under Clinton and under Obama we were able to climb out of a massive hole.

          I like the band.







          The first 6 presidents were amazing, it's been down hill ever since.

              I'm from Illinois originally so I'll always have a soft spot for Lincoln. In more recent years, Carter, not so much for how great a POTUS he was, because he had his shortcomings, but for his character.

                This the Jimmy Carter I love.
                You can't fault a guy that can pick up a saw and hammer and frame a house, maybe do a little finish work.


                I think one of the post requirements of being president, should be to work for Habitat of Humanity a learn a trade.

                4 years mandatory service. A few blisters and some real sweat never hurt any one.

                  Kenedy. His demise spawned more evidence of this world than any book, course or history teacher ever.

                    Agreed, Kennedy and his brother Robert and also Martin Luther King in U.S. politics were the people's last hope to have a voice in their government. What has happened since their murders has been a slow but steady degradation of citizen and human rights in favor of the so called military industrial complex.

                      The Kennedy's were very inspirational, when they spoke.

                      When Ralph Crampton told his wife Alice you're going to the moon, nobody listened. When JFK said were going to the moon, we were all on board.





                      I believe America was a lot less divided back in the 60's, looking for real social change. The military industrial complex has been alive and well since WWII. Fear and money drives that industry very nicely.

                        Well actually Mike the 60's was the the time of the biggest social changes in the United States for a long time, Civil Rights, Flower Power, Protests against the Vietnam War etc., so no it was very divided during that time for quite a while but then the division was muffled, stifled, and co-opted and absorbed until it became ineffective and just another mainstream meme.

                            Well that's a great excuse. Neither was I there at the time but I know the history of that era.
