    in particular how it was a transformative point in American history. I really know very little about Lyndon Johnson but I cant help being impressed by some of the actions he took. I particularly like the way he scared/intimidated/bribed/charmed members of congress to get his way.
    Not sure in the grand scheme of things if he was truly great.
    I do know that our current President whom I greatly admire needs to take a risk and start shouting at people.
    I personally can see no down side to him going "Angry Black Man" at this point.

    Of course I am just a simple 55 yr old Canadian who lost his job of 33 yrs and who desperately wants to believe in people acting for the greater good.

    peace.
