Sleeps until noon,
Used opium in college
And drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

He is a decorated war hero,
He's a vegetarian,
Doesn't smoke,
Drinks an occasional beer
And never committed adultery.

There was more than not eating meat with that man. He brainwashed an entire country. I believe the saying goes there's a fine line between genius and madness.....

I believe that Hitler associated with astrologist too...'My Fuhrer the constellation Gemini is in perfect alignment with Mercury..this won't happen for another 10,000 years...great time to invade Russia".

Churchill a quart of whiskey every night??..no wonder he slept til noon.

I wouldn't really consider FDR as one of our finer presidents. His administration kick-started this "the gov't can fix the problem" sickness that has infected more and more people in the last 70 years.

I agree that FDR wasn't one of our "finer" presidents but when he first took office during the worst depression in American history, he had to do something totally radical to get the country back on it's feet. Unemployment was like 25% and you have seen films of long soup lines and hopelessness on many faces. His New Deal of '33 was a mixture of policies to 'kick start" the economy, some say socialist programs but as late as 1940 things weren't getting any better. Some people even feel that Roosevelt sacrificed the Pearl Harbor fleet to get us out of the depression. I can't say yes or no but that "big" government intervention, foreign wars and huge deficits sprang from this period and has continued on today...my stand is less government the better. Protect our borders, collect taxes and maintain a balanced budget..for this is a republic not a serfdom which seems to be the norm today...getting off my soapbox for the night.

Going off on a tangent. I grew up (for a short time) in a New Deal township. Greenbelt Maryland was one of the New Deal projects that allowed people of a certain financial status (or lack thereof one) to move into one of these formed communities.

There were a number of them spread around the North East. Greenbelt was actually a pretty decent place to be a kid. There were little parks with swings and other play items. To get to school you didn't have to cross any streets. There were underpasses. And the community center had the stores, entertainment and sporting areas.

It was great then but seems rather socialistic and utopian now.
