Do you still have your “I like Ike” button?

If you still have your “I like Ike” button, it could be worth a fortune now. It turns out that Ike is now hated.

Every morning, I check the stats for my blog. I want to know what subjects my blog followers are reading. Yesterday, the subject that got the most hits was “General Dwight D. Eisenhower”.

Why is Eisenhower back in the news, I wondered?

I threw away my “I like Ike” button many years ago. How I wish I had that button now!

Dwight D. Eisenhower was the most beloved president that America ever had — until the truth about him came out. Then those “I like Ike” buttons went into the trash.

You can read about the Ohrdruf camp on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Ohrdruf/index.html.

Why should you read about Ohrdruf on my website? Hint: It is believed by some people that the Nazis were trying to build an atomic bomb there. When I tried to visit the former camp, I was turned away at the entrance.

No one is allowed to see what the Nazis were doing there. I went to the nearby town of Ohrdruf but no one there would talk to me.
