Thank you, Wikipedia: Some assorted Reagan Administration crimes and criminals:

Iran/Contra: Caspar Weinberger, Elliott Abrams, Robert C. McFarlane, Alan D. Fiers, Richard R. Miller, Clair George, Richard Secord, Thomas G. Clines, Carl R. Channel, John Poindexter, Oliver North, Duane R. Clarridge, Albert Hakim, Joseph F. Fernandez. Lying to Congress, perjury, hiding money, mostly pardoned by Bush I, who was himself involved in a criminal conspiracy to defraud the American people of a fair election and to sell arms to America's avowed enemy.

HUD: accepting bribes in exchange for taxpayer money: Phillip D. Winn, Thomas Demery, Deborah Gore Dean, Joseph A. Strauss, Silvio D. DeBartolomeis, Catalina Vasquez Villalpando.

Ramping up the "war on drugs" to create the continuing disaster we still are saddled with today.

S&L scandal: Martin Mayer wrote at the time, "The theft from the taxpayer by the community that fattened on the growth of the savings and loan (S&L) industry in the 1980s is the worst public scandal in American history. Teapot Dome in the Harding administration and the Credit Mobilier in the times of Ulysses S. Grant have been taken as the ultimate horror stories of capitalist democracy gone to seed. Measuring by money, [or] by the misallocation of national resources... the S&L outrage makes Teapot Dome and Credit Mobilier seem minor episodes." Of course, that was before Bush II and TARP.

Economist John Kenneth Galbraith called it "the largest and costliest venture in public misfeasance, malfeasance and larceny of all time."

FARK Ronald Reagan. FARK the a**holes who praise his legacy.

Will Reagan funding the Contras in Nicaragua by having the CIA sell crack to black neighborhoods be in the intro class or will that be in one of the advanced courses?

The best part is, you don't have to pay tuition - instead they'll send the bill directly to your grandchildren.

Excepts from the Book of The Reagan (Unabridged)

And when The Reagan did flee Beirut, the terrist laughed and sayeth amongst themselves "This United States is afraid of us. They flee when the issue becomes unpopular and the death count is high. And the Reagan did not speak of Beirut ever again.

And The Reagan sayeth to the school children. This is tomato. Taketh it and eateth it. And the school children sayeth "These are but packets of ketchup." And The Reagan replieth: Tomato / ketchup. Ketchup / tomato. Let's call the whole thing off. And the masses laughed.

And the Reagan raised taxes. verily, he did. In 1982, 1984, 1985, 1986 and 1987? Holy Jumpin' Jimmy Carter!

Hopefully the class will shed light on the stark difference between The Tale Of Saint Reagan and the facts about his tenure as POTUS.

1) Distribute flyers to conservative fraternities
2) Get young republicans to sign up in droves
3) Prepare bulldozer to clean classroom of head explosion remains
