You know, it's funny that we all like to say we support freedom of speech and
differing opinions until someone actually *uses* same, at which point one is
pilloried for saying such things (though on the other hand it's enlivened the
conversation a bit).
I'm sorry, but I can have no soft spot in my heart for Reagan. He's been a
quisling ever since he was president of the Screen Actors Guild and cooperated
gleefully with HUAC in rooting out all those supposed commies in the film biz.
He ran a heartless administration, which saw retreats in many necessary social
areas, and created a meanspirited "me first" generation that gutted the heart
of this country. He allowed, even encouraged the closure of plants and the
shifting of the very *heart* of this country's manufacturing basis to other
countries because it was good for share holders, no matter how many people were
thrown out of work after decades of loyal service.
You want to talk mean and cruel, nothing I said here compares in the
*slightest* with the tens of thousands of people who have suffered lost jobs
and incomes and even lost lives because of the policies and programs he
But that's the way of things...get outraged about the *word* and not the
*thing*...and the *thing* here vastly outweighs a few pixels and phospher dots.
