Asked during a conversation this past weekend about all the goings-on...
Do you remember the movie Americathon? John Ritter was president, in the 1970s. Supposed to be a glimpse into the "distant future" - you know, around 2000? He had to sell the White House and move into a condo when the country went broke?
I did not remember that movie. Thankfully, we have YouTube.

Since it's from 1979, I'd guess it was on after my bedtime. And, if it was shown earlier than 8:00 p.m., it's not the sort of movie my mom would have let me watch.

Shame it's not available through Netflix.

Ha, thanks for the movie reminder.

I looked it up on Wiki and it was interesting to read the 15 or so satirical predictions made in the movie that eventually came true.
