And Ward, June, Wally and the Beav will be really shocked to find so much union-busting, given that the % of workers in unions were more than 3 times what they are today, and neared 40% of the working population.
I'm not even going into the huge increases in tax dollars that were shelled oout to educate Wally and the Beav in public schools and allowed them to have a low-cost college education available to them if they wanted it.
Hey, if BillO wants to go back to the high-tax, high-service and high-union '50s with its high rates of economic mobilization and protective tariffs, feel free. It's a little bit drastic compared to what I believe in, but I could go along with it.
That is what he meant by "traditional America", right?
