.@lk087 @Smartypants60 I believe "Occupied" is available on Netflix. At least, it was six weeks ago.

I disagree on gravity of North Korea, but I will yield on rest. That said, McCartheyism still a greater domestic threat. https://t.co/5ZQdTCTBeE

McCarthy in 1953 much greater domestic threat. Berlin 1948 and start of anti-Communist witch hunts argue for 1949. You're right on 1961. https://t.co/2wkImh51f6

I'm not convinced that things were that perilous in 1969 despite Vietnam. I'd nominate Truman 1949, Ike 1953 and JFK 1961 ahead of Nixon. https://t.co/OJxl1Sp6K2
