May He Rest In Peace With God

With all the politcs of today don't you miss Ronald Reagan?  I mean not only was he articulate, funny  and smart, he was entertaining as well.  Maybe his acting career helped him there some but he was genuinely just a pretty well liked guy no matter your politics.  

Here's a few of his words he left behind to remember him by:

"Here's my strategy on the cold war; we win; they lose."

"The most terrifying words in the English language are:  I'm from the government and I'm here to help." 

"The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just they know so much that isn't so." 

"Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the US was too strong." 

"I have wondered at times about what the 10 Commandments would have looked like had Moses run them thru the US Congress."

"The Taxpayer:  That's someone who works for the Federal Government but doesn't have to take the Civil Service Examination." 

"Government is like a baby:  an alimentary canal with a big appetite on one end and no sense of responsibility at the other."

"The nearest thing to eternal life  we will ever see on this earth is a government program."

"It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession.  I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.  "

"Politics is not a bad profession.  If you succeed there are many rewards; if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book."

"No arsenal or no weapon in the arsenols of the world is as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women."

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God then we will be a nation gone under."

Gee, nothing like a brainless oversimplification to really exemplify Republican lack of thought.

"The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help."


Actually its "Heckuva Job Brownie"

"Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the US was too strong."


But the Iraq war came about because the President was a lying dirtbag.

"Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards; if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book."


And you can always count on a Bush to pardon you for committing crimes for them.

No. Reagan was not the Messiah president you alls like to paint him as.

To counter your Reagan quotes, some from Harry Truman, the best president of the twentieth century:

"A President needs political understanding to run the government, but he may be elected without it."

"All the president is, is a glorified public relations man who spends his time flattering, kissing, and kicking people to get them to do what they are supposed to do anyway."

"Experience has shown how deeply the seeds of war are planted by economic rivalry and social injustice."

"I have no desire to crow over anybody or to see anybody eating crow, figuratively or otherwise. We should all get together and make a country in which everybody can eat turkey whenever he pleases."

"I never did give anybody hell. I just told the truth and they thought it was hell."

" remember when I first came to Washington. For the first six months you wonder how the hell you ever got here. For the next six months you wonder how the hell the rest of them ever got here."

"I would rather have peace in the world than be President."

"The reward of suffering is experience."

"The United Nations is designed to make possible lasting freedom and independence for all its members."

"You can never get all the facts from just one newspaper, and unless you have all the facts, you cannot make proper judgments about what is going on."

"Always be sincere, even if you don't mean it."


Now, that guy was a president. Reagan (and everyone else since him) are just embarrassing shams compared to Harry.

Wasn't Reagan the governor of California who decided that AIDS wasn't something that needed to be addressed because it was only killing homosexuals, therefore allowing AIDS to get into the blood supply, and get a foothold in the United States?

That was actually funny.

He was the greatest. And that is why liberals hate him so much. He was proof that their way was and is the wrong way.

Ronnie Ray Gun was a delusional addled old geezer who spent the last few years of his second term soiling himself and falling asleep in cabinet meetings.

Thats about the only way Reagan could be the best president of their lifetime.

To counter your Reagan quotes, some from Harry Truman, the best president of the twentieth century:

I like Harry although I must confess I don't know that much about him.  I was thinking he was best known for his "The Buck Stops Here."  I like that especially. 

He was the greatest. And that is why liberals hate him so much. He was proof that their way was and is the wrong way

Yes he was!  As usual....we're in agreement Doc!

But according to "their" logic, that is what makes them great. Screw an intern, and you are great. Tear down a dividing wall - and you are bad!

At least he wasn't attacking other countries for no reason. Not that I can point to any president that did, but still. He kept busy.

Which is why we had Cole, The African Embassies, WTC I, etc.......

His mind was not on the job.

He was governor in the 60s. AIDS did not hit until the late 70s, and was not recognized until the early 80s. However the Myth of Reagan's presidency can be seen in the following paragraph:




AIDS funding skyrocketed in the 1980s, almost doubling each year from 1983 – when the media started blaring headlines – from $44 million to $103 million, $205 million, $508 million, $922 million, and then $1.6 billion in 1988. Reagan’s secretary of Health and Human Services in1983, Margaret Heckler, declared AIDS her department’s "number one priority." While the House of Representatives was Democrat-dominated throughout the 1980s, which Democrats would quickly explain was the source of that skyrocketing AIDS funding, Reagan clearly signed the spending bills that funded the war on AIDS.




Some will criticize the source, but they cannot refute the numbers and dates.

in the beginning it was chaos.....this was affecting the blood supply and nobody knew what and who started all this at first.  There was a movie that came out about this.  Remember the fear and Ryan White and his family who lived in Florida? 

The problem was the secrecy.  The CDC (I believe) was afraid of panic so they didn't alert people right away and because of that it spread thru the blood supply.  Bathhouses were thought to be the blame and they were immediately shut down all over the place.  If I remember right...there was a male stewardess who was doing quite a bit of damage by spreading HIV all over the place as he traveled the country but that didn't get noticed until it was too late and many people were infected. 

I'm not so sure it's fair to blame Reagan for this because nobody knew what they were up against in the beginning.

Finally someone notices I posted here.

Anyway, I don't know about it. A friend of mine was dissing RR and brought that up. As he was born in California at around that time, and his mother almost needed a transfusion, it's quite a sore subject for him.

He's a good guy though.
