Re: <nettime> Lacanian meets Trumpian

JFK's "legacy" was ratcheted up and deployed to pressure LBJ
into continuing and expanding the Viet Nam war into an ignominous
defeat after Nixon milked it mercilessly and murderously rather than
increasing social benefits LBJ hung his 10-gallon hat on.

That natsec opportunistic manipulation, aka fabrication of enemies
of the natsec-industrial-media state, that is, browbeating the sacrifical
populace to supply copious "warfighters," (horrible fodder euphemism)
continues and expands worldwide to assure continuing and expanding
wealth accumulation. Clinton and Trump presaging Obama's future.

"Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his
hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats." H.L. Mencken.

Now this Lee Harvey Oswaldian is attributable to ISIS, so must
not be stated on a public forum. Consider it not digitized into the
big belly of the Library of Congress for alimentary to the IC.

   You are right about all the positives of LBJ, and I concur.
   Unfortunately, you minimize his role in enormously escalating the
   Viet-Nam war, which led, quite probably to the stagflation that put
   Nixon in power and created the conditions that helped sweep Reagain in
