I Loved 1968. Let's do it again!

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Fenian_Bastard, Dec 6, 2006.

  1. From the ISG report:

    I am accused occasionally of Vietnamizing Iraq beyond the limits of analogy.
    OK, barefaced lies about the level of violence, promulgated for domestic political purposes only? (The Iraqis, after all, have a pretty good bead on the actual casualties, I'd guess.)
    Puppet government with no popular support?
    Embedding US advisors with the Iraqi army?
    Can't leave/Can't stay?

    Some big differences:

    --No draft now.
    --Easy access to credit cards now, leading to a false sense of affluence.
    --Closer sexual equality and sexual freedom are now a given, not a new frontier.
    --Music was much better then.

    Pshah. 1968 gave us such classics as Hurdy Gurdy Man, by Donovan and Harper Valley, PTA, by Jeanne C. Riley.

    Seriously. Hey Jude (Beatles), I Heard It Through The Grapevine (Marvin Gaye), Mrs Robinson (Simon & Garfunkle), Born To Be Wild (Steppenwolf) are among the songs of 1968. Not a bad year... even if I only experienced half of it.

    The Dow hit a high of......985.

    A stamp cost 6 cents.

    Gallon of gas (regular, which you did not pump yourself): 34 cents.
