I can remember, and it wasn’t so long ago, when getting into the US represented a significant challenge. First you had to apply for a visa (which contained a raft of tricky questions along the lines of ‘are you a terrorist or do you intend to commit acts of terrorism while in the US?’) and if memory serves me correctly you even had to do an interview with some steely-eyed bureaucrat. My niece overstayed her visa and was summarily deported, never to return. A friend of my wife who livedI in America, was married to an American and whose kids were born there was, together with her kids, refused permission to board the plane at Shannon due to some technical glitch in their documentation.

Square key for the ignition, round for the trunk, doors, and glove box.
You ate the liver and onions or went to bed hungry.
The bathroom towels were always wet and it was never a problem.
No one cared if the seat was up or down as long as it was attached.
Phones were secondary to actual face to face conversation.

Joe McCarthy on Education:
“Every man and woman in America can appoint himself or herself to undo the damage which is being done by Communist-minded teachers and Communist-line textbooks.
Countless times I have heard parents throughout the country complain that their sons and daughters were sent to college as good Americans and returned four years later as wild-eyed radicals. The education system of this country cannot be cleansed of Communist influence by legislation. It can only be scrubbed and flushed and swept clean if the mothers and fathers, and the sons and daughters of this nation individually decide to do this job. This can be your greatest contribution to America. This is a job which you must do if America and Western Civilization are to live.
I warn you, however, that the task will not be a pleasant one. When you detect and start to expose a teacher with a Communist mind, you will be damned and smeared. You will be accused of endangering academic freedom. Remember, to those Communist-minded teachers, academic freedom means their right to force you to hire them to teach your children a philosophy in which you do not believe.
To Communist-minded teachers, academic freedom means their right to deny you the freedom to hire loyal Americans to teach your children.
We cannot win the fight against Communism if Communist-minded professors are teaching your children. We cannot lose the fight against Communism if loyal Americans are teaching your children.”
