Here's looking at you, Dutch
2001-10-02 03:29:47 PM  
I can't tell if he is more of a vegetable now, or when he was in office.
2001-10-02 03:30:29 PM  
I dunno. A closed airport seemed more appropriate for the name they gave it after ramming the proposal through congress...
2001-10-02 03:31:17 PM  
Great picture, Demanton, makes me feel better after reading the rather insulting way this post was titled. I know I'll remember him like this...
2001-10-02 03:32:48 PM  
If you argue that this airport should stay closed, shouldn't we close every airport located near population centers and/or important landmarks?

Wait, that's every major airport in the country.

Open the farkin' thing!
2001-10-02 03:35:19 PM  
I think the concern is more toward the running of the country.
2001-10-02 03:37:14 PM  
Not farking funny.
2001-10-02 03:39:40 PM  
They should at least change the name of the airport. Maybe Veggie Ron's International Airport.
2001-10-02 03:40:55 PM  
More jelly beans, Mommy
2001-10-02 03:41:21 PM  
What they didn't tell you about was the installation of the Oliver North memorial anti-aircraft gun emplacement and hostage negotiation center.
2001-10-02 03:46:09 PM  
Nice touch, Demanton.
2001-10-02 04:06:48 PM  
Many Virginians opposed the renaming of the airport. Betcha they'll be plenty happy when it reopens, though.
2001-10-02 04:21:31 PM  
Takes real class to kick someone when their down. Says a lot about you as a person. Typical.
2001-10-02 04:24:54 PM  
I didn't want to say this, and I still don't, but I feel obligated to say something in any link with the word pudding in it, just because my nick is bill cosby..
2001-10-02 04:25:38 PM  
Funny, that's what a lot of poor people said about Reagan's economic policies.

I don't make fun of him because he's dying of a horrible disease. I make fun of the Reagan I disagreed with and the Reagan that the Republicans are attempting to deify. Renaming the airport was little more than a "we're in power, nyah-nyah-nyah" act. It had a perfectly fine name before that everyone could respect.
2001-10-02 04:30:14 PM  
screw reagan, his lies to the american public (who cares who he shtupped, i wanna know where iraq got those tanks), and his military-industrial tit-sucking. if any president should have been removed from office for incompetence (granted, because of an illness), it was that one.
gasp gasp
still, it sucks to go out like that. he should have collapsed on the congress floor instead.

oh yeah, screw strom thurmond too.

2001-10-02 04:34:12 PM  
Which President fired all the Air Traffic Controlers?


Which President has an airport named after him?

2001-10-02 04:35:10 PM  
I still insist that he's faking it. He's a gifted actor taking his "I don't recall" schtick to the next level.
2001-10-02 04:37:36 PM  
Finally D.C. will look like D.C. again it's weird going up there and not seeing planes in the air.
2001-10-02 04:44:52 PM  
Fb, Farkeater, Midgettossa, that's classless. I wouldn't wish what he and his family are going through on ANYONE (no, not even a tree-hugging, anti-war demonstrating, bleeding heart liberal). But, man, you guys come close!
2001-10-02 04:46:44 PM  
I wish people would stop making fun of him. He has no control over what he does anymore, and it's sad. Too bad this really had nothing to do with Reagan. Just an airport named after him. But even still, people have to throw out the random comments about him. Sick.
2001-10-02 04:59:23 PM  
He never had control over what he did. That's the whole point.
2001-10-02 05:08:14 PM  
"Clinton disbarred by USSC, Clinton responds by looking at his infertality and messed up dick"

Let's apply this to another Liberal activist

"Reagan airport will reopen. Gary Condit responds by asking for more gay male hookers."

Fark, as usual, is classless. Of course, it's not like they all allowed this INSULT of a post to be named that way.

Here's to you Ronnie, you saved America from another Great Depression, you saved Central America and you defeated Communism.
2001-10-02 05:09:48 PM  
Hmm... everyone on Fark is all for the skewering of Sacred Cows... unless it's their own.
2001-10-02 05:21:20 PM  
"Fark, as usual, is classless."

Ummm... duh?
2001-10-02 05:23:12 PM  
I believe you meant "you saved Central America from independent rule", Bobo555.
2001-10-02 05:28:05 PM  

if you call the Sardinistas FREE then you obviously need to get your head out of Stalin's ass and look at the real world. Any government where the government owns industries is communist and should be wiped out.
2001-10-02 05:28:22 PM

Um... this thread isn't about Clinton. Let's get back to making fun of the Gipper.
2001-10-02 05:37:32 PM  
See, I'll start it going again...

Q: "Whats wrong with this country?"
A: "Nothing a little Alzheimer's couldn't cure"

Aw, we hurt Bobo's feelings. Apparently, there are some topics the first amendment doesn't apply to (body count? Bought that video from Jerry Falwell, did we?).
2001-10-02 06:28:57 PM  
Whoa, that was pretty funny.
2001-10-02 07:16:35 PM  
well, I hate to leave this forum on a bad note. Here's to ole' Ronnie, an unfortunately appropriate President for the 80's. Surfs up, Ron!

2001-10-02 07:16:41 PM  
Um, Bobo, I think you forgot to add giving it to you in the ass without proper lube. Perhaps that explains your anger.
2001-10-02 07:38:11 PM  
Krucz36, move to Afghanistan.
2001-10-02 07:39:02 PM  
3M TA3, which President pushed over the CRUSHED communism by WINNING the cold war?

Bobo sorry supporting regan is out of fashion now.. Many people have forgotten what exactly even happened during his administration and the vast majority of the anti regan crowd was still shiatting their pants (Go ahead and make an alzteimers joke wait till your grandma gets it and see if she finds it funny, slow deteriation of mental function for little known reasons to otherwise healthy people always provides endless amusment to me too) Anyone who doubts supply side economics should check out teh newsweek form about two months ago I will dig it out of the trash to get the exact date if anyone bothers to look.. It was not about economics but rather about how much these huge investors and corps sunk into telcom companys (creating the jobs I and many hundreds of thousands have now) and see what billionares do with a couple hundred million.. granted it is about the flops but in all reality most of the flops were bought out or assumed by other healthy telcom companys and are still around in one form or annother employing many (mindspring rythems onemain pipeline etc adnausem)...

Regan was a fine president granted he had a scandle or two but nothing like the clinton era.... Most of the bashers forget what the carter years were like or were not even alive for them.. an even greater percentage can not even name one specific reason he was a bad president (Perhaps supply side economics but ecomnomic theory is as provable as religion and jsut as contested) so mock the poor man if you wish but do so in a specific manner please so we can refute or at least debate your points...

oh Krucz36 any tank with a T in front of a number did not come from us so get you facts right we battled T-72 from Iraq not A-1's

3M TA3 would you rather have them fired and replaced or stay on stirke for months or did you not happen to see what happened to airlines after a few days without service in the last few weeks

okay I am swithcing to decaff now
2001-10-02 08:03:43 PM  
... Vman wins the prize for owning everyone on this thread.

2001-10-02 08:28:51 PM  
Go ahead and make an alzteimers joke

Well, ok then:

So the doctor walks in and tells the patient, "I'm sorry, but you have alzheimers and cancer..."

And the patient says, "Well at least I don't have alzheimers!!"
2001-10-02 08:32:24 PM  
Supporting Reagan is out of fashion? I hear more "Reagan is God" in the media than ever. Forgotten Iran-Contra? Forgotten Nancy's astrologer? Forgotten "trees pollute more than cars?"
2001-10-02 08:33:58 PM  

2001-10-02 09:09:07 PM  
Owning everyone huh?? explain....

As far as Henchman's comments go Iran Contra was his main and pretty much only scandel... It was bad not as bad as say selling nuke secrets to russians or drowning blondes in lakes but it was a mistake... AStrolgist sheesh the First lady consults an astronmist wow not much I can say to that other then who gives a rats a@$ I am flakey sometimes too we all have weird beliefs.

As far as stupid statments go how about "I did not have sexual relations with that women" or "I created the internet"

To sum up one misguided secret program a couple gaffs and a flakey wife hell compare that to the clinton legacy above and see how those three things stack sheesh
2001-10-02 09:17:07 PM  
Thanks, Bobo555...

That was beautiful.

Now I know EXACTLY how deep the pile of shiat you are standing in

Thank you for so eloquently nailing that down for us.
2001-10-02 09:55:43 PM  
let's see, problems with Reagan.

1. defecit spending 2. the war on drugs 3. the invasion of grenada 4. iran/iraq war (you damn well we played one side off the other to maintain the stalemate) 5. nicaragua 6. manual noriega 7. 12 YEARS OF CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVE BULLshiat.

all that besides Iran/Contra, which was a secret government operation to circumvent U.S. Law.
2001-10-02 09:55:52 PM  
Aw let the libs make fun of Ron, they have so many mockerys of their own to make up for...
2001-10-02 09:59:42 PM  
I'm willing to bet that most of the people slamming Reagan here are too young to have much of a memory of his Presidency and are getting their information from the crappola spooned out in their schools. Nothing like a bunch of graying leftists to give you the straight scoop on things.
2001-10-02 11:06:03 PM  
Actually, I find most of the people who post in the political threads to be rather conservative, just exceedingly cynical.

Reagan, as far as impressions to the rest of the world, be the greatest figurehead we have ever had. Clinton is right up there.

Henchman... wow, even you poked at Bobo!!

Jjorsett... Reagan is not a religious figure.

Who was saying there was no scandals and then added Iran-Contra to that total of zero? How about the astrologer? How about the 'October Surprise'?

I liked Reagan. He was the very man we needed at that time. Tall, selfconfident, imposing... then it turned to 1985 and things got odd. Some of you Libbyites forget that. (Not any major scandals or anything, just he wasn't the same. Rumor was, at the time, that he may have suffered a small stroke iirc)

you blame clinton for 911? Since I'm rather certain that you don't mean the emergency telephoning system, I must call you a farking asshole. Bin Laden (likely) is responsible for 9/11.
Now if you are blaming Clinton for the anger that bin Laden has against the US, then you are still wrong. GHWBush is the President who, rightly, put US troops into Saudi Arabia. That is the purported camel/straw for bin Laden.
2001-10-02 11:35:21 PM  
but.. GHW didn't have EIGHT years to get Bin Laden without any success. Of course, Clinton wasn't trying either.
