Important to remember now and TALK ABOUT in run up to November...

The GOP once attacked JFK as "weak on communism".
Today's GOP gets weak in the knees FOR Putin, who pines for a return of the USSR.

This switch in alliegence is really jarring to the this former Gen-X kid who remembers the early 1980's and the assumption that any day would be WWIII and nuclear war.

The Day After? Yeah, that fucked me up as a 12-year old worried that I would be vaporized by the USSR's missles...where the fuck is Gen X at now? I know we collectively get tarred with the apathetic brush (always have) but for fuck's sake people...I did not grow up in a vacuum, did I? There must be SOME collective memory of Reagan and the GOP war-mongering and trying to show how much MORE one hated commies than thee next?

1. I'm with ya on this

I think I was 10 when it aired on t.v.

To me? The Russians have always been the bad guys.

What concerns me is GOP Politicians and Talking Heads in our Age group -

Who are trying to gaslight us.

We know - you and me - WE KNOW.
