3. Gag! To put Camelot and that creeps name in the same

14. No that wasn't the problem. I got that. It was just thinking back to
the Kennedy days and then thinking about these days at the same time. Too much for my brain. What a difference between the two. Actually what a difference between * and any other president

15. Kennedy was before I was born
But from what I've read, it sounds like what we had in the 1990s with President Clinton. Both were hopeful, optimistic times. Strong economies.

Two young energetic presidents with great ideals. (I think President Clinton was 46 when he took office.)

17. Actually it was pretty simuliar. Kennedy made everyone think they
mattered in the world and could change things for the better. I guess I got involved in US and world politics then and haven't gotten out. Always looking for a better world for everyone. I don't remember the economy. I was still in high school.

Today I feel like I'm living in a very bad science fiction movie - for 5 years now
