Happy President's Day.  Time to vote on the best and worst American presidents.

I cast my best at Lincoln (slavery), LBJ (civil rights, medicare, medicaid), and FDR (jobs, social security).

Sitting presidents don't count in this vote (the jury must remain out).

What a loudmouth forum this has turned into, from the days when it was truly about American History.
It looks like the old days are gone forever, spammers or no.

LBJ...baaah!

"All the way with LBJ" ... baaah!


Holt's 'All the way with LBJ' 1966

On 30 June 1966 Australian Prime Minister Harold Holt gave a speech at a state reception held at the White House and hosted by US President Lyndon Baines Johnson. Reported in The Australian newspaper on 1 July 1966, Holt's speech concluded with a remark which has come to be seen as encapsulating his unquestioning support for Johnson, for America's Vietnam policy and for continued Australian military involvement in the conflict: 'You have in us not merely an understanding friend but one staunch in the belief of the need for our presence in Vietnam.
 We are not there because of our friendship, we are there because, like you, we believe it is right to be there and, like you, we shall stay there as long as it seems necessary to achieve the purposes of the South Vietnamese Government and the purposes that we join in formulating and progressing together.


#####

Oh no we did not!
Holt believed it, his cronies believed it...but the People did not.
They knew why we were there...self-defence...America Australia's only real protector.
Another stupid war [not declared] that saw many US and Aussie troops slaughtered for nothing.


And so, sir, in the lonelier and perhaps even more disheartening moments which come to any national leader, I hope there will be a corner of your mind and heart which takes cheer from the fact that you have an admiring friend, a staunch friend that will be all the way with LBJ.' Whilst some Australians were concerned about the nation’s involvement in the Vietnam War, Holt’s famous promise in this speech - that Australia would be ‘a staunch friend that will be all the way with LBJ’ - came to define this period of US-Australian relations.

On 20 October 1966, President Johnson arrived in Australia at Holt's invitation for a three-day state visit, the first to Australia by a serving U.S. President. The tour marked the first major anti-war demonstrations staged in Australia. In Sydney, protesters lay down in front of the car carrying Johnson and the Premier of New South Wales, Bob Askin (prompting Askin's notorious order to "Run over the bastards").
 In Melbourne, a crowd estimated at 750,000 turned out to welcome Johnson, although a vocal anti-war contingent demonstrated against the visit by throwing paint bombs at Johnson's car and chanting "LBJ, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?".


#####

No one got run over...we'd not be standing for that tripe.

To get enough troops for the slaughter the Holt govt introduced conscription/the draft.
That went down like a lead balloon too.
Protests everywhere about that.
"Not happy Harold".

"All the way with LBJ"...baaah.
Conscription?..."Nuke Em" I said ...as I was forced to register for the ballot.
"This is just like Nazi Germany" I said...as I was forced to register for the ballot.
"We've got nukes...use them!" I said...as i was forced to register for the ballot.
"Nuke Hanoi, turn Nth Vietnam into ash" I said ...as I was forced to register for the ballot.


bambu-ilk later had everyone made equal.
We got conscription abolished...they'll never try that again, because we'll be insisting that 'Barbie' and 'Muslim women' etc get drafted, not just 'White males'.

We got the death penalty abolished, no more govt man able to put people in death chambers.
We got corporal punishment abolished...no more canes in school for teachers to bash students with.


Should've been;  "NO WAY LBJ, stop the lunacy, find another way"!

Polk had a set. Got a lot done, too. underrated.

However....

NO one beats Washington. He walked away from the emperor's throne and set the tone for the rest of the crew.

JFK had a legacy?

RFK. He would have had a legacy; had a lot more balls than his brother.
