    Jackson didn't even know what state he was born in (NC or SC?) - both claim him, but probably neither should.

    Irrelevant.

    Since we CANNOT see the names of who participated in the Poll, since its a BLIND POLL, the left has taken it upon itself to skew the poll results by doing what they do best.

    What should he have done? The Iranians were not looking for war, with their new regime they couldn't take that on. They were expressing anger about these events:

    "...In 1951 Mohammad Mosaddegh was elected prime minister. He became enormously popular in Iran after he nationalized Iran's petroleum industry and oil reserves. He was deposed in the 1953 Iranian coup d'état, an Anglo-American covert operation that marked the first time the US had overthrown a foreign government during the Cold War.[92]After the coup, the Shah became increasingly autocratic and Sultanistic. Arbitrary arrests and torture by his secret police, SAVAK, were used to crush all forms of political opposition....

    ...On 4 November 1979, a group of Iranian students seized the U.S. embassay and took 52 US citizens and embassy personnel hostage[102] after the US refused to return the former Shah to Iran to face trial and execution...."

    And they have the full resources to bribe the congress critters to put in the tax code that is favorable to them. That's the lie that rich have sold the 'Free Market economists' and 'Supply Side economists' , to change the tax structure to favor the rich, and strip the wealth from the middle class and poor. They key part is 1) the inheritance tax, and 2) changing the income on capital gains to be taxed much lower than money made from working.
    Knee-jerk anti-government sentiment is not a viable political philosophy.

    If Reagan was President today and took the same positions on guns that he took in his lifetime - the right wing would despise him and he would be the target of their vitriol.

    Which had nothing to do with the reason the aircraft crashed.

    It's not even against procedure. Don't know where your news source claims to have gotten this.

    The NTSB ruling was quite clear. It was a combination of failed de-icing and pilot communication problems. PATCO's insistence isn't relevant.

    Re: Is Ronald Reagan the best President all time?

    Reagan was a great leader by way of his strong personality. He was like a father figure to us all. Behind the scenes, however, he was not so kind to the most of us. In the name of "tax code simplification", now renamed "income redistribution", Reagan eliminated all progressive tax brackets above 35%, all the way up to the top bracket of 93%, then imposed only on the highest of annual incomes, which were also inflation adjusted. Had he not succeeded in this act, the nation would not be suffering now and over the past thirty years from the increasing problem of income disparity. This is a lasting legacy that tarnishes an otherwise outstanding leader.
