    BTW,
    what are your thoughts on Manzanar
    since you seem to be a big FDR defender.


    I don't have any thoughts on Manzanar and I don't plan on spending any time thinking about a place that went out of business a long time ago.

    I'll leave thinking about that place to time-wasters like you.

    but the real criminals in the oval office were the FDR regime-most of our problems are due to their rape of the constitution
    Most of our problems are due to things that happened 80 years ago?

    Well, I guess that's slightly better than claiming that most of our problems are due to the crucifixion of Jesus. . .
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.
    This group is the worst enemy of America and its freedoms. It includes, but is not limited to, all Trump supporters.

    Jerry Ford thought very highly of him, and I think highly of Jerry Ford, but Ford and I depart where Cheney is concerned.

    Re: What do you think about Dick Cheney

    Looking back at his career, I would say he was more wrong than not about his gut instincts about the Soviet Union and the Middle East after 9/11. That being said, one hell of a Republican soldier and an inside man. I wouldn't ever want to be on the other side of the table.

    I agree with you that GWB screwed that up.
    Good thing DEMs in Congress helped him get it straightened out, don't you think?

    Unlike the egregious bull**** we've seen from the GOP on PPACA as well .

    Republican Soldier??
    Odd you would use the word "soldier" for Dick when Cheney couldn't be bothered with that "soldier" thing five times--his words .
    You're Welcome .

    Say that as often as you want, but there's very few men I'd want on my side to get something done. For his generation, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld would be near the top of my list of folks I'd want on my side.

    Ford also pardoned Nixon, headed the Warren commission and put a federal income tax on Veteran's pensions.

    Reagan didn't think much of him either, considering how little Ronnie campaigned for him in 1976--our 200th anniversary.
    It was clear to Reagan that in order to become President, Ford had to lose .
    You're Welcome .
