4. Remember when Lyndon Johnson said (paraphrasing) "For all I know Our Boys were shooting at Whales."

 

Don't talk to me about dicks. I lost one Hero (Uncle) literally, and one Hero (Uncle) figuratively.

Politicians are dicks.

10. Johnson actually supported laws which gave freedom and support to poor and minorities

but the vietnam war does hurt his record.

13. and it's even easier for people to become informed

even on TV which plays up fear you will see the doctors and others with science background saying one thing and it's mostly politicians who are saying the opposite.

yet people can't seem to figure out who they should believe. or even just a simple article .

9. No surprise there. When LaRouche croaks, they're going to have to find another nut to latch on to.

16. I still have the letter to the Editor

that I wrote to the paper in my very conservative town. I was 22 or so and they set up shop in front of our Post Office. I was appalled and tried to shame people with facts as I saw many giving money to his campaign. He was running for POTUS of course. He's a true wack job.
