Default The Forgotten Pandemic of 1968

Most people don't realize that in 1968 there was a pandemic that killed 100,000 Americans. Government didn't shut down any businesses and people went on with their lives. Most people don't know that it even happened because we didn't have internet, 24 hour news, social media and smartphones in 1968.

Liberal Logic 101:
Americans shall be required to submit to a background check to exercise a right already guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment while any foreigner shall be allowed into America without submitting to a background check.

My father said he had the Hong Kong flu in 68. He said it was the sickest he ever was. Times certainly have changed. Yes back then we didn't have a media telling people how afraid they should be.

Back in 68 kids were passing around a joint among themselves. I bet that caused a lot of cases.
