Sipe, that line about the napkin rocked.

Of course, he also testified before the House Unamerican Activities Committee. Aptly named, since it was the most Unamerican Committee I've ever seen...

I still think it's ironic the that a fan of Vonnegut and Steinbeck runs a site where the majority of posters are racists and Dumbfarks who consider Reagan to be "the greatest president alive."

"But I can extend him greetings in the name of his wonderful associates, past and present, living and dead: Suharto, Roberto D'Aubisson, Manuel Noriega, Jean-Claude Duvalier, Jorge Rafael Videla, Ferdinand Marcos, Saddam Hussein, and President General Romeo Lucas Garcia, to name a few."

Don't forget Osama Bin Laden. He gave a happy birthday wish to his biggest supporter in a videotape sent to Al Jazeera

Well, nice to see Mawam is resorting to a particularly intellectual tact called 'name calling'. YEAH! Limbaugh frickin' RULES!

In 1963 -- 2 years after the Berlin Wall was built -- JFK went to Berlin and said "Ich bin ein Berliner" (I am a Berliner).

In 1987 -- 24 years after JFK -- Reagan went to Berlin, stood before the still-standing Berlin Wall, and said "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall."

In 1990 -- 3 years after Reagan's speach -- the Berlin wall was torn down.

Do the math......

As I posted before: Happy B-Day, Mr. President!

I was never a Reagan fan - not even close -, but I'm not gonna wish anything bad on anybody (expect people like Bin Laden or Jeffrey Dahmer), or make jokes about their affliction. You gotta give a guy some credit who's eaten up with Alzheimer's and still made it to 91.

Happy Birthday, Ronnie.
2002-02-06 08:44:17 PM  
Oops -- make that *except* people like Bin Laden, etc.
2002-02-06 09:35:44 PM  
ended inflation

started economic boom

restored American confidence

Won Cold War

Thanks Ronnie!

"His policies did increase the gap between the rich and the poor in this country, more people were homeless than ever before. "

That is cause he was too cheap to keep the 70%+ the metally ill that are now the homeless in the nuthouse where they belong (or was that carter that let them out? doesn't matter ronnie did the same thing). Now we all get hit up for money from these crackheads. Don't give and maybe they'll hit you with a brick and then Senator Clinton can defend that right cause your a dick for not getting out of the way quick enough.

Politicans suck. Thanks for screwing up more than your fair share ronnie.

Won Cold War

Carter as well as too many other to meantion helped a little in that 45 year cold war.
Even John Wayne had help in his movies.
2002-02-06 10:24:10 PM  
OK, I will go with some of those (Not Jimmy)

Ronnie put it over the top in a big way so he deserves Mad Props...
2002-02-06 11:18:18 PM  
Mad props for almost getting us all killed, I'm sure...

Ralph: you're welcome. And SDI WAS a Reagan idea, wasn't it...scrapped half because we lacked the tech to do it, and half because if word got out that we had a BALLISTIC MISSILE defense shield, enemies would just start cooking up other ways to get at us that don't give as much warning? Like, ummm...hijacking big airliners and ramming em into buildings? Stuffing moving vans full of explosives or poison gas? Hell, stuffing a nuke warhead in a moving van. (forget that "suitcase" bullshiat. If you can get your smuggled nuke on the ground in the first place, driving it there with a lead plate between bomb and driver is SO much more sensible than trying to lug it around on foot, isn't it? And it's a NUKE, it doesn't really matter whether the epicenter is in an office or in the parking garage, I'd say.)

Misha: Hey, haven't you heard? Limbaugh is mellowing out in the name calling these days, he's passed that torch on to Michael Savage. "And these liberal red diaper doper babies think that...and that's why these red diaper doper babies are just total idiots, I'm Michael Savage! Call me up now and we'll talk. (FSVO "talk" that mean "let you get one sentence in and if I don't like it, I'll scream at you, call you a red diaper doper baby, and keep my own gob going until the commercial break, where I can hang up on you)"

Lloyd: That is cause he was too cheap to keep the 70%+ the metally ill that are now the homeless in the nuthouse where they belong And, ironically, he is now both. Is the nuthouse where he belongs? Well, I'd have to agree with that...

Fark Reagan. Next to FDR, he's a gibbering pile of wasted neurons plastered behind a pretty face.
2002-02-07 01:32:55 AM  
"whatever stalin."

To Mawam and the other people who enjoy calling their opponents "communists" via references to Russia... News flash: The communists can't even take over Moscow. Get a clue.

And, just to let y'all know, Reagan didn't kill the USSR. Gorbachev did.
2002-02-07 03:00:54 PM  
The Dark One, Hooray for Star Wars, the 'make-other-countries-try-to-make-undetectable-nukes' program.

All we need is for our good pal President Bush to start an arms race while throwing the ABM treaty out the window.

You're from Montreal? Nobody speaks 'coward' like a frenchman, right? First of all, live in a country with some significance THEN share your thoughts on ours.

Second, it's called China. Clinton, probably a personal hero of yours, sold China U.S. nuclear technology allowing them to have ballistic missiles which will seriously threaten this country within ten years. They are communists, which to any rational mind means The Bad Guys. There is also some public evidence of Chinese involvement with 9/11, which would fit a communist tactic. Regardless, he pulled out of the ABM because the Chinese didn't steal our secrets out of simple curiosity as to how to make ballistic missiles. Hence the need to be able to shoot them down.

Charon, Gorbachev did not. Communism is what ultimately killed the USSR. Reagan sped up the process significantly by having the balls to declare their villianny publicly and by enforcing policies to match that declaration.
