My nephew linked this article on Facebook.
"...Why 1968 was so much worse then 2016."
1968. Dad was a news junkie
even way back then.
Being his sidekick
my evenings were spent watching
Funerals of friend's brothers.
it was burned into my brain.
And the music
lots of "ungodly: music
which we listened to
on the radio
on the way to school.
The young man who wrote the article
this does not even begin to compare to what it was then.
He is a bit far fetched when comparing "the Donald"
to George Wallace.
The man who stood on the steps and did not permit a child to enter school,
is way different then political roderick.
The hate in his eyes
The dogs he had released.
Obviously, he did not live that era.
Now if he had compared Nixon to a different liar,
but this really isn't about that.
The nation has it pretty darn good.
People have gained rights
We are pulsing forward.
One step forward, two back?
I think the opposite is true.
Not even close to 1968.
