    1. Johnson was a CORRUPT RACIST NWO Satanist. He also CONTINUED his efforts by once again enslaving the blacks on the plantations moved to ‘public’ housing instead of embracing freedom for all.

    1. @Sarah Alderman can’t read.

      Claims she’s read a plan that was just announced

      Where? Specifically

    2. @Random Internet User Whitehouse dot gov! You people are so freaking stupid its unreal! How can you not know this?

    3. @Random Internet User to help you out its called FACT SHEET: The American Jobs Plan. On the White House’s website. Good Lord! I didn’t realize you people were so far out of touch. Secondly it wasn’t just announced, it was announced over a month and a half ago. Absolutely hilarious that you thought it was just announced though. Just goes to show us how uniformed people watching this fake trash actually are.

    4. @Sarah Alderman I know you miss trump badly and you want to go back to the times of getting sick and dying but the rest of US have left that ship so you can sink with it if you like.

  1. Joe Biden was turning 21 around this time LBJ made this speech, man he’s been around a long time! P.S. Michael needs to fix his mic!

    1. Oh so Biden is yet another example of the argument supporting TERM LIMITS

    2. @BidenHarris: MAD Magazine’s Person Of The Year
      Says the troll whose YouTube account is only one month old and has over 700 comments.

    3. @BidenHarris: MAD Magazine’s Person Of The Year wants lifetime republican dictatorship and conservative corruption…
      Claims the world is against him and it’s a conspiracy

    1. COrporate Dems: “Power to the people! OUR people! **** the rest of you!”

    2. @BidenHarris: MAD Magazine’s Person Of The Year The latest bit of screed from the infamous troll.

  2. Johnson has always been underrated in terms of progressivevdomestic policy and its significance.

    1. I agree with you, He deserves more credit for the passing of the Civil Rights Acts, Kennedy advocated for it but He died young while Johnson had the connections and negotiating skills to pass it, knowing that the Democrats will lose crazy racist south that the republicans will do anything to hold on to as of today including lies, deceit and more racist red meat.

  3. Rachell this this is why cancel culture is so wrong,, if we forget as a society were we have been, we are destined to make the same mistakes. I not the first person to have eccoed that regain.

    1. Nobody’s canceling history, Doc! Our history is actually becoming more accurate and complete, showing the evils unvarnished instead of glorifying or hiding them, while abandoning some historical myths. So-called cancel culture has been a fixture of the human race since we first walked the Earth. It’s a non-violent social construct that signals disapproval of unacceptable behavior that is disruptive, destructive, or dangerous to the tribe or community. If you boycott a company because they exploit workers, one might claim you are engaging in cancel culture. But is that a bad thing, to encourage social changes which are beneficial to society as a whole? Is it “so wrong?” I don’t think so–but I do think that it is a tool which should not be abused or taken too far. Republicans employ the term derogatorily or in derision to protect and perpetuate wrongs, while they hypocritically are the most flagrant and prolific in misusing it.

  4. This was when the were planning to attack Viet Nam and talking about doing great things. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

  5. There’s a BLAST from the past!! Never, ever did understand any of this Vietnam strategy, but neither did he!!!!

  6. What we need is an infrastructure bill. Check out Vice News’ story about how our dams, bridges, locks, and subways are falling apart.

  7. This is like that, but with a great two termer having come before…it’s gonna be beautiful when VP Harris takes her oath of office as President!

  8. The republican party has gone so far downhill in the last 50 years that I predict it will be no more in 2030. America needs to form a new party and get away from this Trump cult!

  9. If it wasn’t for the Vietnam war, Johnson would’ve been ranked as one of the greatest presidents in history. Regardless, he was one of my favorite presidents. And I was born in 1983.

  10. President Biden recognizes the right time to do the right thing is now, not later. FDR and LBJ knew this and took the steps to insure that things got done and got done right.
