    Yep the 80's were amoral with a president who followed astrologers and dealt weapons to an avowed enemy of the USA.

    Ah, the decades of my youth.

    70's: atrocious fashions, time of decline

    80's: great music, politically exciting times

    I have no great affection for the 70s and 80s - except they were better than the 90s.

    The 50s were steady and the 60s were cool.

    I graduated high school and joined the Carter Navy in 1977. I didn't have a great HS experience for various reasons. The early years in the Navy were not terribly good either. Things turned around in the 80s. The music was good, I met my wife, and my two kids were born. Probably the best decade of my life. The 90s were very good and the 2000s have brought great joy and good times.

    I am blessed beyond deserving so I work at being a good person. I usually try and put forth the effort needed to be deserving of my dog's loyalty. I'll never get there but it makes me work harder.

    Cold War was at a high point during the 80's. Only ended in the 90's.
    As for the first decade of this century: those enemies were hardly new.
