Still able to fantasize what I want to do, where I want to be, and what I should look like! Like Calvin and Hobbes, I have a wild imagination!

    The number of American dead from corona virus not only passed the number of American casualties in Vietnam, but also did so right before the fiftieth anniversary of the “incursion” into Cambodia. It was the second turning point after the Tet Offensive in 1968 which affected the course of that “war”. It took Kent State and the nationwide student strike to push for an end to the war. Have we also come to the push against this “war”?

    Same here, I have a bachelor and a masters, and I showed up the day LBJ figured how to get the civil rIghts bill passed in the Senate. He was able to finesse it as master of the Senate and get Ike to sign it. It was weak, but it formed the basis of the ones in 1964 and 1965.

    Precisely my point. Above average means making some changes for the better. Unfortunately the Domino Theory they fed us in the Cold War turned out to cause a needless war in Vietnam to last some thirty years. Greatness requires lasting positive changes.

    Au contraire. LBJ was the last above average president we’ve had. When the millennials think that Obama was the best president in their lifetimes, I tell then I was born before 1969. I’ve seen better.

    Ironically, “Donald” does mean king of the world. Don=lord, ald-powerful. Leonardo diCaprio means powerful lion from the island of goats.

    The real problem is that too many Americans think they’re privileged solely because they were born here. Then we require foreigners to pass tests to become citizens. I agree that such a requirement would help, although “literacy tests” are long gone and don’t help. I remember during the Clinton impeachment, someone actually asked me if the House could remove him with a majority vote. I had to explain the two-thirds vote to convict, yet even this year I heard confusion between impeachment and conviction. Why two thirds? The Senate was supposed to be the cooler heads against the mob, and the framers made it difficult but not impossible to remove a president.
