Response to calguy (Reply #49)

89. You've got me beat by 8 years. First election I voted in was Carter's in 1980. First

one I worked on (as a volunteer precinct walker) was Jesse Jackson's primary campaign in 1988. (I may have walked precincts for Dukakis in the GE, but I can't remember doing it, even though I liked Dukakis a lot.)

I don't post here 24/7 either. But I have been thinking about Hair Furor and how to respond almost non-stop since Nov. 9. I don't expect to stop any time soon, although circumstances may soon prevent me from posting here as often.

What's coming down the pike is going to make Ticky Dick look like a choir boy, I fear. (Just came out yesterday that Trump and his Junta are being advised by Blakcwater founder Erik Prince, who is advocating a return of the Phoenix Program!). We'll be damned lucky not to end up as a radioactive cinder heap.

The bravest of the brave during Vietnam in my opinion were not those who went abroad to evade tje draft, although that took courage, nor those who served, although that too required more courage thnn I have had before now. In my opinion, the bravest of the brave were those who went to prison rather than serve. You can dismiss that as 'crazy talk' if you want. Nelson Mandela was so 'crazy' he spent 27 years in prison.
