Bask in the warm glow of a sane America in 1954. What a nice place to live. If only these people knew about the offensive that was being planned against them at this time. It hit like the blitz after they shot John F. Kennedy. These people were so shell-shocked it was ten years before they could even mount a counter-offensive.
Wouldn't you like a lovely 1956 Christmas? Remember the spending capital your parents had on a single salary? The tree was so packed with gifts underneath it when I was little that we were still opening packages in the afternoon. Everything was so cheap it didn't take credit cards to make your kids happy on Christmas morning. We lived like kings but we didn't know it at the time. It was simply America. The table at evening was crammed with a month's worth of food and it all cost less than an IPhone cover does nowadays. This was before we went off the gold standard.
