Really, Lyndon Johson OK.
There are -- in my conclusion the worse presidents this nation ever had: one, Abraham Lincoln, an absolute idiot; the next one, Lyndon Johnson.
Johnson was able to dismiss the philosophy of the Declaration of Independence, destroy this nation for the good of the party, the Democratic Party, the hell with the nation.
Next time I see you we'll have to have this discussion.

Once again saying thanks for the wonderful day spent with you and your family. Must admit that your dad gave me some insights I'd never known, sure made me think again just what a mess our nation is currently in.
Once again thanks, enjoyed good food, cold beer, and fine company. What could be a better way to spend a day?
