  1. No dark clouds on the horizon, oh how little did they know…oh how little did they know.

    I find it more interesting that Reagan won Term 2 in half an hour, but got way less of the popular vote overall, while Nixon has all these margins called in bigger numbers, but took to the halfway to make it.

    Also, lots of Trump vibes on John Schmitz, complete a%^wipe, but completely correct about the country being off to ruin, if for the wrong reasons.
