Comment: Lyndon Baines Johnson, from start to finish--

(See in situ)

Lyndon Baines Johnson, from start to finish--

was a man without moral fiber. A man who was first for himself, I believe.

I did not know the man personally, but I had a good friend many years ago who did know the man personally and saw the worst of him and really didn't know anything good about the man.

This sounds like a slur, and it's not meant to be. That the person who knew him was a person of great integrity and was the only person I ever knew who knew LBJ is not something I can do anything about! LOL!

What on earth was LBJ doing as a president of the U.S.?

But then--

what were/are many of them doing?

Many Americans tend to look at the 50s through the 70s through pink glasses--

and yet there was LBJ in all his corrupt glory--

May those who died on June 8, 1967 rest in peace.

And I can't help but hope that LBJ hasn't heard the last of them.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
