    Its happening as we blog.  This economic meltdown was under Obama's watch - hell, maybe it even started in 2009. George W?  He set up killing Bin Laden, Obama just took credit.  The list goes on and on.

    Viet Nam?  Only the hippies were against it - you know, spitting on vets, calling them baby killers.  Must be true, 'cause I saw it in a Rambo or Norris movie. All the conservatives and VFW guys were foursquare in support of returning vets. Odd, my brother was a 60s AF vet (not Nam), and he doesn't remember it that way at all. He's getting old, though.

    The 50s were the best of times for the USA. Joe McCarthy got a bad break and was smeared by liberal historians.  Fox news says so.  Ask Greta Van Sustern. McCarthy was a close family friend.

    And you hope/wish they remembered Runnymede?  Hell, jog their memory with "its where they signed the Magna Carta" and most still won't get it. Magna Carta?  That's what those over educated librulz get on their college degrees, isn't it?

    This is a feature of the conservative movement.  A required feature, IMO.  Orwell hit the mark about controlling or rewriting history.
