The Iron Lady Passes

Original post made by Gary on Apr 8, 2013

Margaret Thatcher was a great leader. She joined Ronald Reagan in defeating the socialist thrust, including the victory in the Cold War.

The leftists hated her, and that is a great honor for her.

She was the Iron Lady, a real irony since the Soviets gave her her handle. RIP Iron Lady! You did a solid job, with a stiff upper lip. You did not get any respect from the leftist women, who were always complaining about glass ceilings, even though you crashed through them. In fact, they hated you, because you opposed collectivism.

Atta Girl, you were GREAT!!!

A French politician once described Baroness Thatcher thusly: She has the lips of Marilyn Monroe and the eyes of Caligula.

Noting the passing of Margaret Thatcher seems appropriate, but why are these posts that are deliberately inflammatory to "the left" allowed to stand since all they will do is to begin an argument that will lead to the board being locked down?

Can this nonsense be deleted please?

It is worth mentioning what David Cameron said of her today "She did not only lead our Country, she savid our Country".

Her policies would be as good today as they were then. Here is a wonderful example of her wit and her ability to debate her point. Web Link

Margaret Thatcher called things the way they were: she characterized Ronald Reagan as "a wuss the likes of Jimmy Carter."

We need more "wusses" the likes of Mr. Carter. What did Ronnie & Maggie do after they left office? Anything that helped others? Not quite. She, after all, considered Nelson Mandela a terrorist. Stupid, racist, mean-spirited call, Maggie. You're not missed!
