    I'm sure the partisan Republicans will agree with that.

    I'm not so sure that the Arabs were quaking in their boots after Reagan's sale of arms to Iran.

    That's about it.
    Wrong, the party of Pelosi, Reid, and Obama bad, not the entire Democrat Party. You keep baiting and posting nothing more than typical leftwing BS and I will continue to post data and facts that make you look foolish. Facts matter a lot more than rhetoric, that is except to the Gruber electorate.

    That happened late in the Reagan Presidency not when he took over. Seems you have a very selective memory on some issues

    By the way I voted for Carter and was a long time Democrat. Carter's resume beat Fords as he was a Governor

    So, they were in fear of him until late in his presidency?

    I didn't vote for Carter, but do agree that his resume beat Ford's.

    You mentioned the Iran arms deal and I told you when it happened.

    OK, and I was trying to figure out why OPEC was afraid of Reagan's foreign policy and leadership.

    Here's the timeline of the start of the arms deal:

    November 4, 1979-January 20, 1981: 52 American Hostages Captured in Tehran, Held for 444 Days


    Early 1980: Israel Proposes US Secret Arms Sales to Iran

    Summer 1980: CIA Agent: Republicans Open Secret Channel to Iran in Preparation for ‘October Surprise,’ Arms Deals

    1981: Israel Begins Selling US-Made Arms to Iran

    January 20, 1981: Reagan Sworn in as President; US Hostages in Iran Released Hours Later

    January 28, 1981: Reagan Officials Planning to Sell Arms to Iran

    1983: Israeli and US Companies Begin Supplying Iran with Arms
    So, how again did fear of Reagan's foreign policy bring OPEC back in line?

    Oh, give me a f***ing break, I am not going to debate liberal talking points and time lines with you over something that happened over 30 years ago and have nothing to do with today. Iran Contra was in 1985. Reagan's economic record is the issue vs. what Obama has done and for someone who isn't an Obama supporter you continue to divert from his record and always want to relive the past, why?

    Good afternoon. Now back to the topic my friend.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/26/bu...T.nav=top-news

    In the late 1960s, more than half of the households in the United States were squarely in the middle, earning, in today’s dollars, $35,000 to $100,000 a year. Few people noticed or cared as the size of that group began to fall, because the shift was primarily caused by more Americans climbing the economic ladder into upper-income brackets.

    from 1967-2013
    Interactive.
    http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2...abt=0002&abg=1

    The middle class, if defined as households making between $35,000 and $100,000 a year, shrank in the final decades of the 20th century. For a welcome reason, though: More Americans moved up into what might be considered the upper middle class or the affluent. Since 2000, the middle class has been shrinking for a decidedly more alarming reason: Incomes have fallen.

    Don't quite understand exactly what you want or expect. Per the article
    More Americans moved up into what might be considered the upper middle class or affluent
    making the upper class grow. So tell me what exactly is your solution since apparently personal responsibility doesn't exist in so many people's lives. There is equal opportunity in this country and hard work, initiative, and drive still pay. Ask Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and thousands of other self made millionaires who didn't sit around waiting for someone to pay them more money, they went out and made it.

    Some people here still don't get it, businesses are in business to make a profit, as much profit as they can. They are not in business to employ people. I was looking for a job when I found my first one and all the education and experience I gained on my job made me more marketable. Too many are sitting on their asses waiting for someone else to make more opportunities for them. That isn't going to happen in this country or the world. You cannot raise wages enough for any liberal but raising wages could put small businesses out of business and have. Seems that the problem with too many is low wages as they totally ignore the expenses of the business and Business's ability to compete. High taxes and regulations are business costs as well

    As I mentioned before increases in productivity used to mean wage increases.
    Now it does not. That may be part of the answer.
