The only queer is U, the admitted 1.  556K Americans murdered by a brainless virus because the **** spreaders don't die.  That makes it an insidious disease that will continue to evolve new variants & will circle back someday to pick off u low-life scum when u are vunerable.   Meanwhile, my family, friends & I are safe & laughing at RNC scum like u.  U & your euro-trailer-trash girlfriend are simply a couple of putin's little fat piggies 🐖🐖.

I totally agree, and just for the record, I thought Reagan was a great president, especially after following such an inept boob like Carter.  But I NEVER thought his decision to give amnesty to millions of illegals was wise but I understand why he did so.  He believed the worthless promises of scumbag Democrats who promised they would shut down the border to illegals AFTER he did so, and of course, the lying Democrats reneged on that promise just as they do every time.  I knew that then, just as I know it now, which is why they must NEVER be given the opportunity to do so with amnesty again before the wall is completed, and then deport every other illegal to wait in line behind the millions of others who FOLLOWED AND RESPECTED OUR LAWS and are waiting for their visas. 
The Simpson-Mazzoli Act was possibly the one major regret Reagan had of his presidency; trusting and believing Democrat lies:
Reagan Regretted Trusting Democrats Regarding AmnestyPublished July 9, 2018 by Papa Giorgio
Mind you, to be clear, Reagan didn’t regret “amnesty,” he regretted TRUSTING THE DEMOCRATS who did not live up to securing the border ….. sound familiar? Larry speaks with John Heubusch of the Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute:

…In his book, Reagan: The Life, H.W. Brands writes about the president’s interpretation of a 1986 immigration bill at the time.


“Al Simpson came by to see if he had my support,” Reagan recorded in October 1986, shortly after the measure cleared the House. “They have one or two amendments we could do without, but even if the Senate conference can’t get them out, I’ll sign it. It’s high time we regained control of our borders, and this bill will do it.”

The legislation at the time was widely viewed as an enforcement-first measure, said then-Attorney General Edwin Meese III, who advised Reagan on the matter along with other Cabinet officials.

“It is very definitely a teachable moment,” Meese, the Ronald Reagan distinguished fellow emeritus at The Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Signal, when asked how the 1986 legislation might inform President Donald Trump in his negotiations with congressional Democrats on codifying the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), implemented by his predecessor.

The Reagan amnesty of 2.7 million illegal immigrants was paired with the promise of controlling the border and penalizing employers who hire illegal immigrants. The legislation was better known as the Simpson-Mazzoli Act, named for its sponsors, Simpson and then-Rep. Romano Mazzoli, D-Ky.

The problem with the 1986 law was that the promised enforcement didn’t occur, but the amnesty did, Meese said….
And if I could add one addendum, it would be this:
I stopped caring long ago if some Democrat ******* called me a communist, a Nazi, a racist, or any other insult du jour they throw around at the drop of a hat.  And I only wish the feckless Republicans in Congress felt the same way and hit back against them rather than crumbling with fear every time one of those race cards is played.  Right now, you can count on one hand the number of Republicans who stand up to them and fight back, and having the guts to do that was one of the primary reasons people loved Trump and why the media and Democrats all hated him!

You can keep believing reagan was a doddering old fool who got played like a little ******* by democrats - while still arguing he was great. I cannot see how people square that circle.

He hired hundreds of thousands of new civilian bureaucrats after promising to shrink government. Carter had literally laid of bureaucrats. The only part of the government Carter grew, relative to population, was the military. The only part FReagan shrank, relative to population, was the military. He grew the bureaucracy by leaps and bounds.

I have presented the government statistics to back this claim many times on this board - I'll see if I cannot hustle them up for you, if you have any doubts. They damn reagan as a big government progressive liar who did the opposite of what he promised, while the media swooned and called him the gipper.

You're nuts if you think the liberal media loved Reagan!  They hated him as much as they hated Trump, because he was mostly successful in promoting his conservative agenda.  And beyond giving the country a booming economy that rose out of the ashes of Carter's economic disasters of stagflation, his malaise speech and his misery index, he was a complete failure in both his domestic policies and his foreign policies.  Or have you forgotten his gas rationing lines, Iran taking 70 US hostages, his skyrocketing inflation levels, mortgage rates of 16%, ordering Americans to drive slower and to voluntarily lower our thermostats and put on a sweater, sitting on his hands while the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, and his high unemployment rate while ushering in the Iranian revolution by coddling the Shah?

By contrast, Reagan rescued the country and turned it around completely with his tax cuts that double revenues to the government through the 1980's, building up our military, and restoring the confidence needed to stop Soviet expansion and eventually bankrupt them which brought down the Berlin wall.  NONE of those great accomplishments led the left-wing media to "swoon" over him!
Here's the proof:
What They Said Then: How the Liberal Media Savaged Reagan

Thursday (June 5) marks the 10th anniversary of President Ronald Reagan’s passing and a look through the MRC’s archives shows that during his presidency many in the liberal media couldn’t withhold their contempt of the conservative icon.\
Special Report from 2011 \
From depicting Reagan as a puppet of the rich whose economic policies were cruel towards the poor and minorities, to denying his foreign policy vision helped lead to the downfall of the Soviet Union, the media did their best to trash the 40th President.

The following is a look at the many ways the liberal media attempted to distort Reagan’s record. 
  
Helping the Rich, Hurting the Poor

 “At the end of his presidency, a great many people thought he’d made the wealthy wealthier and had not improved life particularly for the middle class.”
— Peter Jennings talking to co-host Charles Gibson on ABC’s Good Morning America, June 10, 2004.

“Despite the accolades lavished upon Reagan since his death Saturday -- for ending the Cold War, for restoring the nation’s optimism -- his many detractors remember him as a right-wing ideologue beholden to monied interests and insensitive to the needs of the most vulnerable Americans.”
...
“Elected on a promise to slash taxes and crack down on freeloading ‘welfare queens,’ Reagan depicted government as wasteful and minimized its capacity to help people, ideas that survive today. Reagan also dealt a blow to organized labor by firing the striking air traffic controllers, and appointed Antonin Scalia, still the Supreme Court’s most conservative jurist.”
...
“Reagan’s weakening of the social safety net by dismantling longtime Democratic ‘Great Society’ programs arguably vexes his critics the most. By persuading Congress to approve sweeping tax cuts for the wealthy while slashing welfare benefits and other social services like the federal housing assistance program, Reagan was blamed for a huge surge in the nation’s poor and homeless population.”
— Beth Fouhy in an AP story headlined: “Many Still Troubled by Reagan’s Legacy,” June 9, 2004.
CBS’s Morley Safer: “You talk about a vision, and it’s some kind of abstract, vague idea. Did his [Ronald Reagan’s] vision include extraordinary deficits? Did his vision include cutting of the budgets for education and a back of the hand in terms of public education?”
Larry King: “History will not be kind to him?”
Safer: “No, I don’t think history particularly will be kind....I don’t think history has any reason to be kind to him.”
— CNN’s Larry King Live, June 14, 2004.

“Most of those who are physically, economically or otherwise disadvantaged, deeply resented and still resent his insistence that government is the problem, not the solution. Severe and continuing cutbacks in government services to the poor and vulnerable resulted, and the gulf dividing rich from poor widened.”
— Former New York Times Washington Bureau Chief R. W. “Johnny” Apple in a June 11 “news analysis.”    
“After eight years of what many saw as the Reagan administration’s benign neglect of the poor and studied indifference to civil rights, a lot of those who lived through this week in Overtown seemed to think the best thing about George Bush is that he is not Ronald Reagan....There is an Overtown in every big city in America. Pockets of misery made even meaner and more desperate the past eight years.”
— ABC’s Richard Threlkeld reporting from a section of Miami where there had been riots, on World News Tonight, January 20, 1989.

 “Senator, don’t you believe, a lot of people do think that the ‘80s were an excess, which a lot of people got richer and people got poorer, and it’s now fair to redress that balance?”
— Sam Donaldson to Robert Dole on This Week with David Brinkley, Feb. 21, 1993.

 “In the greedy excesses of the Reagan years, the mean income of the average physician nearly doubled, from $88,000 to $170,000. Was that warranted?”
— Bryant Gumbel to Dr. Richard Corlin of the American Medical Association, March 31, 1993 Today.

Homeless Because of Reagan

“Before Reagan, people sleeping in the street were so rare that, outside of skid rows, they were almost a curiosity. After eight years of Reaganomics - and the slashes in low-income housing and social welfare programs that went along with it - they were seemingly everywhere. And America had a new household term: ‘The homeless.’”
— Reporter Kevin *** in the June 10, 2004 San Francisco Chronicle.

Nice Man, Cruel Policies
“I used to say I thought if you were down on your luck and you got through the Secret Service, got in the Oval Office and said, Mr. President, ‘I’m down on my luck,’ he would literally give you the shirt off his back. And then he’d sit down in his undershirt and he’d sign legislation throwing your kids off school lunch program, maybe your parents off Social Security, and of course the Welfare Queen off of welfare.”
— ABC’s Sam Donaldson, who covered the White House during the 1980s, on Good Morning America, June 11, 2004.

“All of us who covered the Reagans agreed that President Reagan was personable and charming, but I’m not so certain he was nice. It’s hard for me to think of anyone as nice when I hear him say ‘The homeless are homeless because they want to be homeless.’ To my mind, a President should care about all people, and he didn’t, which is why I will always feel Reagan lacked soul.”
— UPI White House reporter Helen Thomas in the July 1993 Good Housekeeping.

Reagan’s Real Legacy = Abandoning AIDS Victims and Blacks

“AIDS activists said Reagan did too little to combat the epidemic, and criticized the president for waiting until 1987 -- six years after the discovery of AIDS -- to deliver his first major speech on the subject. Reagan’s philosophy made political enemies among African Americans, who recalled the federal government’s role in ending segregation. Reagan also angered blacks when he refused to support harsh sanctions against apartheid South Africa -- though he denounced apartheid itself -- and flirted with the idea of weakening the Voting Rights Act.”
— Richard Fausset in a Los Angeles Times story headlined “For Some, Unpleasant Memories: Blacks, gays remember Reagan with bitterness, saying he neglected the poor and lacked leadership as the AIDS epidemic exploded.” June 9, 2004.

“There is still, of course, much anger in many communities. Joining me from Savannah, Georgia, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Fauci, thanks for being with us tonight. Dr. Fauci, the San Francisco Chronicle said that Ronald Reagan was guilty, and I quote, of a ‘shameful abdication of leadership in the fight against AIDS.’ If he had been more vocal and compassionate early on would it have made a difference?”
— CNN’s Anderson Cooper during a segment on the Reagan administration’s handling of AIDS aired on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 June 8, 2004.

“Despite Ronald Reagan’s personal popularity, his domestic agenda was in many ways bitterly polarizing. Then, as now, conservatives hailed his tax cuts, his stirring defense of traditional values and his commitment to getting government ‘off the backs’ of the American people. But many liberals and progressives see his domestic legacy very differently, particularly on AIDS, civil rights, reproductive rights and poverty. Though clearly sympathetic to Mr. Reagan’s family, they are still angry over his policies, which they assert reflected the unbridled influence of social conservatives...But Julian Bond, chairman of the N.A.A.C.P., said, ‘Everyone wants to extend sympathy to his family, but when you remember the actual record, it’s a very, very different story.’”
— Robert Pear and Robin Toner in a June 9, 2004 New York Times article headlined: “Critics See a Reagan Legacy Tainted by AIDS, Civil Rights and Union Policies.”

 “In the plague years of the 1980s — that low decade of denial, indifference, hostility, opportunism, and idiocy — government fiddled and medicine diddled, and the media were silent or hysterical. A gerontocratic Ronald Reagan took this [AIDS] plague less seriously than Gerald Ford had taken swine flu. After all, he didn’t need the ghettos and he didn’t want the gays.”
— CBS Sunday Morning TV critic John Leonard, September 5, 1993.

 “At the same time, some experts said, years in which the Reagan administration questioned the value of racial quotas and affirmative action made speaking out against such programs acceptable. This, they contend, made it easier for racists to openly express their attitudes. Groups like the Klan and the Skinheads have both begun targeting the young for recruitment.”
— Kirk Johnson in The New York Times, August 27, 1989.
“You place the responsibility for the death of your daughter squarely on the feet of the Reagan administration. Do you believe they’re responsible for that?”
— NBC reporter Maria Shriver interviewing AIDS sufferer Elizabeth Glaser, July 14, 1992 Democratic convention coverage.

Reagan Was No Cold War Hero

“The Reagan Administration has made a bad situation worse in two ways: first, by convincing the Soviet leaders that the U.S. no longer accepts military parity as the basis for relations with Moscow; second, by challenging the legitimacy of the Soviet regime, calling the USSR an ‘evil empire’ doomed to fail.”
— Time’s Strobe Talbott on pre-Olympics U.S.-Soviet relations, May 21, 1984 issue.  “Some say Ronald Reagan won the Cold War by spending so much on defense that the Kremlin went bankrupt trying to keep up. That won’t wash. During Reagan’s presidency the United States itself became a bankrupt country.”
— Commentator (and former anchor) John Chancellor on the November 20, 1990 NBC Nightly News.“The Soviet Union collapsed, the Cold War ended almost overwhelmingly because of internal contradictions and pressures within the Soviet Union and the Soviet system itself. And even if Jimmy Carter had been reelected and been followed by Walter Mondale, something like what we have now seen probably would have happened.”
— Time Editor-at-Large Strobe Talbott on Inside Washington, September 21, 1991.

“People who want to give Ronald Reagan the entire credit for the collapse of the Soviet Union ignore the fact that the Soviet economy was collapsing and the Reagan Administration covered it up...The CIA concealed what was happening over there so they could keep the defense budget over here high.”
— Newsweek’s Eleanor Clift on The McLaughlin Group, January 15, 1994.Blame Reagan for Today’s Terror“The most serious crisis of Ronald Reagan’s two terms, and the lowest point in his popularity, came after the revelation that his administration had secretly sold arms to Iran and turned over the profits to rebels fighting the Marxist government of Nicaragua....The fallout was severe, softened only by the President’s willingness to accept personal responsibility....U.S. efforts to deal with the tough issues in the Middle East went on hold, helping to set the stage for the first Iraq war and the rise of Islamic fundamentalism.”
— CBS’s Bill Plante on the June 7, 2004 Evening News.
 
An Administration of Sleazeballs

“The Reagan presidency also saw....the Iran/Contra affair, the near tripling of the national debt, the fact that 30 - count em 30 - of his administration staffers would serve time in jail for bribery, corruption and influence peddling.”
— Keith Olbermann on MSNBC’s Countdown, June 7, 2004.

Reagan Mourners Lack Diversity

“Can you tell, Thelma,...if the crowds really look like America? Are they ethnically diverse - African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans - or is it largely white?”
— CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asking reporter Thelma Gutierrez about the crowds at Reagan’s presidential library during live coverage on June 8, 2004.

Peter Jennings: “It is an appropriate time I think to talk somewhat about the, the differences of opinion that were so strong in the country at the time, and as you alluded a little bit this morning, and we haven’t seen many African-American faces up at the presidential library or this morning, that the black community particularly in America has less time for the President than other constituencies.”
George Stephanopoulos: “That’s right. The black community, the Congressional Black Caucus points out that they were never formally invited to the White House and they felt the President, with his support of Bob Jones University, did not reach out to African-Americans during the time of his presidency. Another community, Peter, that’s quite upset with President Reagan during his time in office: The gay and lesbian community in America. Still very critical of Ronald Reagan for never mentioning the word AIDS as that epidemic started to race through America and the world in the 1980s and those voices now are starting to come out as the days go on.”
— During ABC News’ live coverage on June 9, 2004.
Against all that evidence, don't you think it's time to revise your opinion that the media "swooned" over Reagan?  For the most part, the COUNTRY did, and the media hated him BECAUSE of that, just as they did with Trump!

I don't deny that the bureaucracy increased under Reagan but despite that, he led a booming economy that brought in more revenue to the treasury that resulted from his tax cuts.  And because the Soviet threat had been diminished so greatly, it enabled the reduction in the military as part of the "peace benefit" of ending the cold war.

Was this lovely economic boon from growing government, or was it from growing the debt?

The soviet union was still the soviet union when he was shrinking the military compared to population. The cold war was in full swing. THAT dog won't hunt.

The Simpson-Mazzoli Act was possibly the one major regret Reagan had of his presidency; trusting and believing Democrat lies:

And if I could add one addendum, it would be this:
I stopped caring long ago if some Democrat ******* called me a communist, a Nazi, a racist, or any other insult du jour they throw around at the drop of a hat.  And I only wish the feckless Republicans in Congress felt the same way and hit back against them rather than crumbling with fear every time one of those race cards is played.  Right now, you can count on one hand the number of Republicans who stand up to them and fight back, and having the guts to do that was one of the primary reasons people loved Trump and why the media and Democrats all hated him!

Let's look at hard numbers - you know: NOT narrative. Hard numbers.

http://www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversigh ... ince-1962/

Year........Exec Civilians..........Military..........Judicial and legislative..........Total Federal Employees

1977........2,840,000 ..........2,112,000...................53,000.................................5,005,000 ..........Ford's last Budget
1981........2,806,000 ..........2,122,000...................54,000.................................4,982,000 ..........Carter's last Budget Civ. gov. shrank, military grew
1989........3,064,000 ..........2,168,000...................60,000.................................5,292,000 ..........Reagan's last Budget As % of population, military SHRANK compared to population. Civilian employees - federal bureaucrats- GREW compared to population.

Let's look at population. https://www.google.com/fusiontables/Dat ... #rows:id=1 Ford's last year was 220,239,425 people in '77. Carter's last year was 229,465,714 - a population growth of 4.189% during his presidency. Reagan ended 1989 with 246,819,230 people - a population growth of 7.57%. Reagan's military forces (see above) grew by an anemic 2.2% (Carter's only grew by half a point, but Carter was CUTTING civilians, not padding the government employment roster with bureaucrats).

While the population was growing by 7.57% and the debt by 300% and the military by an anemic 2.2%, reagan was growing the CIVILIAN side of government - the part that focuses on we the people - by a whopping 9.2% - MORE THAN POPULATION GROWTH. The man who promised to shrink government - who told Americans that government was the problem and that he was going to get government out of their way - grew that government faster than the population it served grew. The debt grew, the economy grew, the federal government's control of education grew, the federal labor force grew. The only thing that grew slower than the population was the military.

Now, the numbers are there. The sources are there. It isn't narrative. It's historical reality.

Reagan was a big government progressive. Carter was a conservative.

APPARENTLY, conservatism doesn't work. Progressivism does.
