What's he gotta do, spell it out for you? LOLOLOL
Aside from the hilarity inherent in quoting Ronnie Ray Gun who never saw a Pentagon proposal he didn't like, increasing US military spending by 43% over the peak years of Vietnam during his White House residency, and giving right wing paramilitaries American tax money and resources in support of neo-liberal destruction of democratically elected governments in Central America, and supporting the fledgling Osama bin Laden; I have to say I can meet Ron almost halfway on this one. I'm particularly excited about his mention of a campaign against Fox Noise.
Oops - can't believe I forgot the cowering MSM! If they were doing their jobs in better competition with the Fox propaganda machine and the talk radio blabbermouths ... but, our comments were in response to one of THEIR publications, weren't they?
Reagan IS where we need him most - DEAD.
Greed, imperialism, fascistic corporatism, a corrupt judiciary, an ideologically paralyzed national legislature, a militarized, trigger-happy domestic police, racist/religionist-inspired nationalism and isolationism, denigration of science and free inquiry, a crumbling domestic infrastructure, institutionalized torture, extra-judicial government murder, domestic and international spying, neo-liberal warfare against struggling democracies around the world, talk of "loyalty oaths" in state legislatures, imposition of urban dictators overriding citizen democracies (Detroit), race-to-the-bottom policies across the board that place America well down the list of industrialized nations in dozens of classifications, too-big-to-fail banks that operate fearlessly above the law.
American dream or American nightmare? The question is tipping away from a bright, egalitarian promise to reveal a Titanic ship of state ignoring the cries of its passengers who, seemingly alone, can see a looming iceberg.
It's not the "Democrat" party, numbnuts. Only the right wing idiot brigade says that -- or are they your only fraternity?
The Talk Origins index to creationist claims shows why this debate has a long way to go toward resolution. What we need is a good film to illustrate how all of the claims of creationist wackaloons can be met with the strong, fact-based, cogent debunking they deserve.
Hear! Hear! Rickaroo!
Milton Friedman was, along with that devil Ronald Reagan, the architect of some of the worst and most despicable economic policy known to man. The 'Chicago Boys' with their covert intrusions into Central American attempts at self rule led to assassinations, murder, mayhem, negation of open popular elections and establishment of neo-liberal capitalist colonialism which our spook works are still today busily fomenting unrest to re-establish in Venezuela.
See John Pilger's film "A War On Democracy" for yet another reason to despise the foreign policy disasters that make America hated in the world.
Corporatism is destroying our government ... in ALL its branches. Democracy is threatened with becoming a lost dream, defeated by predatory capitalism and greed.
The religionist will spend his whole life trying to convince people that an ephemeral sprite, a wisp in the wind; an unquantifiable, unseen product of the primitive calculations of Bronze Age minds scrawled on Papyrus is the source of all we see - including ourselves.
The 'get rid of human inquiry to grow knowledge' faith.
A regressive, denialist, baseless paradigm with no evidence to support it....NONE.
A scourge on humanity.
A threat to our existence.
A dying curse.
