    We remember it well.
    To “give-in” to your memories and share them is much better,than not.

    Last presidential motorcade I saw was Ronald Reagan, stopping traffic on the Van Wyck for @30 minutes. Five minutes into it a motorcade passed by with Reagan waving at everyone from the limo. 10 minutes later another motorcade, with another waving Reagan. Still not sure which was the decoy. Additionally, the news announced he was leaving from Newark, but when I saw the motorcade it was heading to JFK…..
    And of course, there was Richard M. Dixon’s White House Inn in Seaford, NY, a comedy club run by a presidential look alike. Only thing about Nixon that came close to being funny.
    I know this is way off topic, but I’m feeling distracted today, and giving in to it.

    @jim hitchcock
    Jim: I don’t include you in the “nidiots ” category.
    Just so you know.

    The rest of you “J”-guys have shown yourselves to be “nidiots”, here
    (except for “JoeInDC.”), and any others who did use this forum to
    lay down anti-Ukraine blather.
    Those who still don’t know the difference between Russians and Ukrainians — shame on you for your lack of compassion and lack of knowledge of current geo-political events.

    and some nidiots here still think that I and Andriy are the same person, posting comments?
    I just coined the word: “nidiots”.

    When I was 29,
    (as is Andriy),
    it was a very good year!
    Thank goodness I was Born In the USA.

    OMG: still so many people from overseas, dreaming and struggling to get to NYC.
    Willing to live in over-crowded apartments, just to be here.
    Working under-paid jobs.

    To think of the tired, poor immigrants, yearning to be free;
    still struggling to be part of us, in the USA.

    To work here,to become USA citizens, wishing and hoping and dreaming to be American citizens; TO BE FREE.
    Their dreams and hopes are to advance themselves by way of moving to the greatest city (cities) in America.
    Many must leave their families and send whatever money they can, back to their family members.
    Just to get to live in America.
    Working every day, at the most menial jobs.
    Maybe, just one day-a-week ,to have off from work is such a luxury to them.

    Dig the Robin Hood allusion, although the rich seem to have done pretty well over the last six or seven years (as they did over the eight years before that and the eight years before that, too).

    I seem to recall a night in Spring Valley, NY many years ago where the astonishing guitarist of a band called There Goes the Neighborhood was sporting a Che Guevara T-shirt. Now Che was a man that really believed in the redistribution of wealth. If only…

      Ah… how one learns with time. That young man then, who is an old man now… would not wear a Che Guevara T-shirt.

      And so it goes…

    Barbara J. here:
    Bernie takes the bus?
    (P.S. I am “Jacobs”, Andriy’s last name isn’t Jacobs.)

    Jim, I have a new fave t.v. show: “Jay Leno’s Garage”.
    He has a segment on his motorcycles, coming up in the series.
    Fun viewing for Jorma. @jim hitchcock

    The good news is that Bernie does not do motorcades!

    I am so freaking kidding, Jorma (and Andriy Jacobs) 🙂 😉

    His motorcade passed the five us us while walking in Newport, RI last year. Driver flashed back my peace sign! It was quite the procession of intimidating looking vehicles.
