Le–who?

The REAL LBJ

So while everyone is freaking out about where LeBron James will play basketball next season (Miami? NY?Mars?) the only “LBJ” I really care about today is the pictured guy–Lyndon Baines Johnson, the 36th president of the United States.

Aside from the Vietnam War snafu in which he totally messed up and lied about it, LBJ is my favorite president. Why?

1. Thurgood Marshall. The first African American to be appointed to the Supreme Court.

2. Voting Rights Act

3. Immigration Act of 1965

4. Higher Education Act of 1965

5. Economic Opportunity Act

6. Medicare/Medicaid
