    Good old turtle, just because people disagree with you, doesn't mean they aren't just as hard
    working as you think you are. Obnoxious critter, go watch "Death Valley Days" reruns and you can see Ronald Reagan again.

    And what would you know about hardwood, Mr. TurtleTail

    Reagan's second term was just plain dreadful. I was raising kids - prices were growing far faster than paychecks and loan rates shot through the roof. He was an awful president IMO and that comes from my memory - not reading fluff pieces about how great he was.

    probably would be beneficial for people to fully read the wikipedia page on reagan and read a whole overview of his presidency,rather than picking one thing from his presidency and labeling him good or bad without seeing the whole picture.
    Many folks here LIVED through Reagan's administration and remember it, personally.

    My bet is that you inherited a few million and now maybe have 10-20 million and feel like you earned it all.

    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    You're right, there's no hope for Obama. Oh well, at least he did that healthcare thing and bought GM... libs got something.


    ps. Why are all the options in the poll including "(explain)". I'd like an option with no explanation next time (you know, like Obama), thanks.
