Grease Was The Word

1977-1979

That was the last time we had a President, House and un-filibuster-able Senate all from the same party. Yes, those sure were the economic good old days.

I can remember my dad telling me how he bought gasoline for 36 cents a gallon while we waited in a line around the block to fill up the car. Only to drive away disappointed when they ran out.

Unemployment was down to 7% from the crazy 8% it was just a couple years before. My WIN button kept inflation at a tiny 8%. I'll look through my belongings and see if I can find it. I have a feeling I'm going to need it.

Did I miss something? In 2002 with Bush in office I though the Republicans had 51 US senate seats and 229 house seats. That gives them a majority in both houses of Congress.

Sorry, not reading - that's not an un-fillabusterable majority true....
