When, exactly, would that be? Pre-Civil War, when American held millions of people as slaves? From the Civil War to the 1960s, when they denied basic human rights to millions of minorities? Perhaps in the 70s, when Nixon instituted price controls on, basically, everything, oil prices went out of control, there was stagflation? I can go on and on, but the halcyon days you dream of never existed.

You complain about little things like this, but seem to forget slave-owners raping slaves and denial of basic, fundamental human rights.

Until the late 1960s freaking CONDOMS were illegal in many states.

People who think times were better "back then" usually think that way because they have no ****ing idea what it was really like "back then" at all.
