    Yes, the top marginal tax rate was pretty high during the Eisenhower administration, a lot higher than it is now. Overall taxes, though, I'm not so sure were high for the average person. Meanwhile, we built the interstate highways, helped to rebuild Europe, and did it all without building up a ruinous debt. Those were good times.

    I believe the hangers at Wright-Patterson are way beyond all of that.

    Re: Who was the best president of the last ten

    How cold anyone even consider JFK unless they have been indoctrinated in revisionism.

    JFK's administration was one failure after another.

    JFK signs off on the Bay of Pigs invasion rejecting former President Eisenhower's warnings and advice.

    Allowing the Berlin Wall going up.

    JFK giving Khrushchev exactly what he wanted during the Cuban Missile Crises.

    Rejecting former President Eisenhower's strategy in Southeast Asia and JFK thinking he could fall back to the 17th parallel and stop Communist expansion there.

    And JFK's biggest mistake of them all, was when he signed off on the CIA backed military coups of removing the President Diem regime from power in the Republic of Vietnam that went wrong and Diem was executed and from that day on America owned Vietnam, it became America's problem. The end game being, 58,000 American dead.

    Not that I'm trying to ignore your other points, but isn't what Khrushchev wanted were missiles in Cuba ?

    Best is a subjective term that has no real meaning.

    I will say that President Ford is an underrated Presidency.

    John F. Kennedy. As much as I would like to say Reagan, JFK paid off the US debt left over from WWII. Took a stand against the Russians. Made the move to end the power of the Federal Reserve to print US currency in executive order 1066. By the way, two months after signing that order, he died. Two months later LBJ recended that order.
