Wild Weekend In NYC for LBJ's Great Grandkids

Some 31 people were shot in New York City between early Saturday and early Monday—part of a 24-hour run of shooting victims.

Public schooling, escalating minimum wage laws and the encouragement of fatherless families, were all  things  intensified under LBJ's  "Great Society" program and "War on Poverty". They have made for a mad cocktail of out of control kids.

By the end of the Johnson Administration, 226 out of 252 major legislative requests (over a four-year period) had been met, Federal Aid to the poor rose from $9.9 billion in 1960 to $30 billion.

President Johnson's first ever public reference to the 'Great Society' took place during a speech to students on May 7, 1964, at Ohio University. "And with your courage and with your compassion and your desire, we will build the Great Society. It is a Society where no child will go unfed, and no youngster will go unschooled."

That is really tragic, as the crime figures for New York had been much lower, making it one of the safest cities in the country.
