    I frakin knew a RIP thread about Good Time Charlie would degenerate into a Reagan bicker basket!

    Next time I'm in Lufkin I'll hoist an adult beverage in his honor. Got to meet him twice, truly a silver tonged devil. How else to win an unprecedented 12 times?

    Godspeed fellow statesman. Godspeed!

    It's not an RIP thread. Notice the lack of R.I.P. before the thread name. Keep up.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    The man who helped bring down the Soviet Union has died.

    R.I.P.
    You know what, come to think of it, is there an "RIP" rule/warning/sign? Seems to me, here at DP, the ones that say "NOT AN RIP THREAD" are the norm, not the opposite. Keep up.

    Wow. You're silly.

    Saying R.I.P. in a thread doesn't make it an R.I.P. thread. See that one? It has [R.I.P.] on it's title. Thus explaining that it is an R.I.P. thread. Are your parents home? This is getting strenuous.

    .....If you're going to insult me, at least make sure you've read the books instead of watching the movies. It is Poirot.

    Well said.

    Its just sad it had to be said.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Reagan, and Wilson both did a lot to hurt the Soviets even more. In regards to what Wilson did, the Soviets were winning in Afghanistan until we sent our Stinger Missiles and other equipment over. After that, they were flat out being slaughtered. While that couldn't have caused the collapse of the Soviet Union in and of itself, it was a big kick in the pants, and IMO made them collapse up to half a decade then they might have otherwise.



    Cuba and N. Korea are also falling apart...... still even.
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us
