The 60's were underway... every week something was shot into space, there was prosperity. Things were great until around late 64 when LBJ's policies began to bear fruit.

In 65 he started the ''Great Society" and get us deeper into VietNam.

Ended up with 50 thousand soldiers killed in VietNam, a divided country, and now we have 3 generations of baby mommas pumping out drug addicted babies for profit while baby daddy diddles all night somewhere else.

Great, indeed.

The millions of baby mommas are all direct descendants of LBJ.

When you pay the least productive people in society to reproduce, guess what they do.
