Dull, silly speech. I got bored & fell to arguing with him.
JFK: “We need new sources of energy…”
JD: “You favor nuclear power, then?”
JFK: “…to bring manufacturing jobs back to America…”
JD: “So you will stop China, India, etc., doing them far cheaper? How?”
Really, though, I just couldn’t get into it. I don’t know when I’ve been so
out of sympathy with a political event. I was trying to see it as they saw
it, in an open-minded & patriotic spirit, but the thought kept intruding:
WHAT THESE FOLK WANT IS SOCIALISM AND PACIFISM.
And what was that about: “…A young president dreamed that we might go to
the moon in ten years. Now we are exploring the stars!”
Er, yes; but we’re exploring them the way we always have, with telescopes.
