On January 10, 1967 President Lyndon “Big Ears” Johnson asked for a 6 percent surtax on personal and corporate income taxes to pay for the Vietnam War. Remember back in 1964 when the leftwing press told us Johnson would keep us out of war and that Barry Goldwater would possibly blow up the world? Media lies never stop. I always detested Johnson and consider him one of the worst presidents of all.

I still can’t believe George W. Bush signed the light bulb ban bill, phasing out the great incandescent light bulb, one of the great inventions of all time. You’d thing GWB would have nothing in common with statist politicians, nanny state types. Can you imagine Ronald Reagan doing anything so foolish?
Savvy writer Neal B. Freeman says that in political terms, the Bush 43 legacy is already set in stone. “He nurtured, promoted and helped entrench a consultant class that maintains a chokehold not only on party structure but on much of the donor base that funds it and the commentariat that promotes it.”
