Yeah all those people in the ten most poor cities miss that Mother Fucker, He was living in a fairy tale world.
If you saw holes in his barnyard analogy then you must be a Socialist, Life is a little more complicated than Reagan could figure.

You really are clueless aren’t you. I grew up in an upper lower class family who’s dad was often out of work due to nitwhits like Carter.

Reagan turned things around and this lower class family had a kid go on to be adocotr and his sister graduate from Harvard.

Why can’t these idiots from these cities do that?

Two reasons, lazy and stupid and allowed to stay that way.

Reagan grew up in a different America than we live today, I think he did more harm to America than any enemy America has had .I would say that the faults of the Gov. at the time Reagan grew up were the faults of nitwits like Reagan himself (Incompetent :slight_smile:

All he had to do is throw around some barnyard analogies and the idiots of America thought he was profound

You really don’t get it. do you even remember Jimmy Cater. Reagan was the best President and the only President that deserved capital letters in the 20th century. You have your opinion, and I have mine. i’ll go back to my Westvleteren and you can go drink some Coor’s light or whatever heathen rednecks drink.

I would say Harding deserves those letters capitalized as well, even though he was not a Democrat he had some good conservative (cut taxes and regulations) values and turned the economy around in 1921, by -gasp- not doing anything more and doing less.

I remember Carter , I made a boat load of money while he was Pres.
The only thing Reagan deserved is what Hinckley gave him :slight_smile:
Tonight the heathens are drinking Blue Moon :slight_smile:

We have someone defending, Mr. 444 days and 20% inflation Carter?

I’m interested.
How did you make a boat load of money in a high unemployment, highly inflationary environment with mortgage rates approaching 20%?
Maybe you inherited money that you parked in savings at 18%?

444 days, how long the terrorists held American people in Iran for under carter. Sorry 20% was china’s inflation numbers in 1979, America’s was 11.3%.

Still under his watch the economy began to collapse. And Reagan had to fix it.

Which if you had any sense, it would be Hoegaarden, instead of a crappy knock off.

I earned it in the steel mills, and parked it in Cdâ??s. The Republicans like to act as though Democrats donâ??t work. Over all I think I know as many lazy Republicans as I do lazy Democrats. I think the only thing the Democrats have over the Republicans is most Democrats are more empathetic than Republicans.

If any body has drunk the cool aid it has to be the Republicans, They believe in Reaganomics.

You are wrong Carter turned the economy around from the Ford Admin.
If you think Carter Admin was tough you should have tried the brilliant Nixon admin. I guess you are just like those brilliant Republicans I have mentioned.

In Carters defense of Iran, I thought it was a brilliant plan that fell flat. His plan was to put the whole city to sleep, go in and take the hostages

Yes, they say (type) things like: "The only thing Reagan deserved is what Hinckley gave him :slight_smile: – but they use smiley faces to project their ‘empathy’ towards humanity.

… but, instead he put a whole country into a malaise…

Ironically, the Blue Moon Brewery was started by and is still owned by Coors (now Molson Coors).

I did not see an age on your profile , Where were you and how old were you in the Carter admin I know there is history books for people that were not of an age to remember, but you have to be careful you don’t get your history from someone with an agenda
