From the 60's
I was raised too never disrespect the President of the USA! A Southern Pride thing. Republicans were in office and held much POWER due to the Assassination of a Kennedy; the year my Sister was born.
In being a 60's child my, education proceeded a history that legends were made of and of those whom gave their life to ensure a free democracy. Being Walled up would have been the last resort.....we the PEOPLE fought in a WAR to disarm conflict of Countries that would have us the USA in a Socialist/Communist cycle most unintended of the masses.
