Is that why reagen turned tail and ran after the massacre of the marines in Lebanon on his watch? Fine way for Ronnie to honor our nations heroes.

How true .... freedom is not free, to live in freedom we must endure the periodic public nonsensical rants about Reagan every once in a while.

The irony is that Reagan's rigging of our economic system to feedback money and power to the elite and its consequent regressive changes incurred in our society have led to this police state and the stalling of the economy with all the juice at the top with nowhere to go.

Although I can smile at leftist myths, it is July 4th, and I thought that the respect for our soldiers was warranted. Please take a moment to watch this outstanding respect for our soldiers, from Reagan. It is true that he won the Cold War, but it is more important that he spoke the truth about our soldiers' sacrifices.

Reagen was cold and heartless, just like that man in college terrace that hates homeless people. Reagen turned tail and ran when our marines were murdered in lebanon. He is the last person to,talk about respecting soldiers. It should also be pointed out that reagen claimed he had bad eyes so he could not fight overseas in WWII-- a sunshine patriot like his buddy John wayne

Despite his consistently being underrated by the film critics, Ronald Reagan was doubtless the greatest actor of all time. Consider how he pursued the Liberal agenda: eleven tax hikes, amnesty for illegal immigrants, and palsy-walsying with the chief of world Communism and his wife, and shutting down America's nuclear power program.

A lesser actor would have been caught and crucified by his right-wing constituency long ago. The Tea Party would have impeached Reagan immediately if he tried that agenda today. However, despite his openly Liberal policies, Reagan is a hero.

Go figure.

Guess Gary was the last one to get the memo. Every time he puts up a Reagan post he gets shot down darn fast. That's the problem with historical fact, too many folks learn about them, no matter how hard certain parts of our country try to belittle high school history and civics lessons.

Reagan's administration was the most corrupt in history. Over 100 indictments, convictions and jailterms, more than Nixon.

Read that again:

Reagan was more CORRUPT THAN NIXON.

That happens when you send weapons to the Ayatollah in order to get cash to send to drugrunners in Nicaragua. Ever the actor, Ronnie was given this line to act out to Americans when caught: "My heart and my best intentions still tell me that's true, but the facts and evidence tell me it is not"

Behind every actor is a great writer.
