Regarding 7:26 comment: Are you talking about the Democrat Lyndon Baines Johnson 1960's? Hey, hey LBJ how many kids did you kill today? Good times for the Democrats; their convention had a anti-war riot.

The 1960's led to the next 20 of 24 years of a Republican President with Nixon, Reagan and George H. Bush. Jimmy Carter was the only Democrat exception and served a disastrous four year term from 1976 to 1980 of 18% interest rates and inflation.

You Marxists throw out stuff that you have no idea what the true facts are.
