The way things are breaking out over there, we may all be waswas…:0/ One thing I know Regan would not do in the face of foreign terrorists invading our country and killing innocent citizens and that is disarm those good citizens. I don’t remember him as saintly but he did have common sense.

No, he wasn’t without faults. But He had a vision and was full of resolve. Remember…Mr. Gorbachev…tear down that wall! ? Sort of clueless at times maybe, but very steadfast. At least he had a direction, even if it was wrong. Something to be said for that.

I know his speeches sound much better to me now than they did back then simply, by comparison to what we’ve had since. America in general took a turn when he left office.

Ha me too! I was in my first year of college when he was elected and I was pretty far out there politically. I thought he was the Devil. I actually cried when he got elected. Things change for sure eh?

Yes, they do and I’ve changed a lot since then! I was busy raising babies and politically disconnected and unaware. To me, he was better than Nixon but these days, Nixon seems mild. Now, none of them are held accountable.:-/

Yeah, go figure poor old Nixon. What he did seems pale in comparison to since then, and he was pretty much pilloried for it all. Times, they are a changin.

Oh how I miss President Reagan—

I do now Julie, but as I was telling Pam, at the time I though he was the devil in a suit LOL. I guess we hopefully get smarter as we age

I always loved him—I was a keen history person and was swept up with the work he, Margaret Thatcher and Pope John Paul did along with Mikhail Gorbachev, to bring down Communism as we knew it–
I was excited he was the president I voted for when I had turned 18 🙂
I can remember vividly that I was standing upstairs at the bookstore at UGA when the radio broke in with the breaking news that he had been shot—those kinds of things, like Kennedy’s assassination, are such mile makers to time

Back when he was president, ISIS was simply called the “Mujahideen”, and they were every bit as much a tool of the CIA/Mossad then as they are now… 😉

That’s funny. When he was elected i was horribly upset, when he was shot, I was horribly upset. Things change in a few years LOL.

I loved Reagan – and this one struck me as true. He would not stand for this for a minute, me thinks.
January 5, 2016 at 04:21
He was a man of much resolve, wasn’t he Ben?

Boom indeed LOL.
