    Oh, Ginny, you just don't get it.

    You know that feel-goodery of the 50's and 60's led this country down the path of over-complacency, and in turn toward it's own downfall?

    50s and 60s were great for music, great films, cars, sports and space exploration

    Socially and politically they left a lot to be desired
