    I would completely agree with you, that Mr. Omnius can be rather odious. That he tends to swing a flaming sword, looking only to enflame, never to shed light. However in this case, he is mostly correct, as to the real legacy of #40.

    Easier to spit on them and yell at them when the cross the picket line if you call them scabs.
    Kinda like how Hitler operated, calling the Jews vermin etc…

    Air traffic controllers. Teamsters. Which of those two still have total control over their employers? The correct answer is none of the above. Air traffic controller were very easily replaced by recently unemployed and mostly obsolete railroad tower operators using 1940’s electromechanical devices commonly known as centralized traffic control. The Teamsters were replaced by independent drivers who were actually willing to work instead of having a wildcat strike every other month. Where are those air traffic controllers today? Who knows. Who cares. Where are the Teamsters? Still around. Barely. Thank you very much, Ronald Reagan for standing up for what is right. BTW, Reagan was a union member who understood when the union agitators crossed the line ,went way too far, and need to be rounded up and taken down. Since then, Ford and Caterpillar along with the Japanese auto manufacturers have knocked down the UAW. Which is why the UAW is so in love with Obama. Obama gave Government Motors controlling interest to the UAW so the UAW would always have a retirement home at taxpayer expense.

    You obviously are drinking the Kool Aid too…

    Reagan increased the debt by 287%,
    Bush increased the national debt by 186%
    Obama increased the national debt by 154%
    >
    Interesting isn’t? It would appear the debt is going down.
    The real measure is the actual dollar increase, not the percentage of increase.
    A 15% increase of $100 is actual less of an increase than a 10% increase of $200. hmmm.
    >
    Reagan added $1.695T to the debt in 8 years.
    Bush added $4.901T to the debt in 8 years.
    Obama has added $5.801T to the debt in 4 years, and is on track to add $5T more. hmm.

    And If you look at the chart half way down, you will see a comparison of unemployment rates based on months in office.

    Funny, Reagan was able to achieve the same basic goal, and did so by only increasing the national debt, in the same period, by about $0.825T or with 1/7th additional debt. hmm.

    Not saying Ron was a great President, just that he was a heck of a lot better than the one we have now.

    Ronaldus Magnus was a great president, perhaps the only one of the past 150 years. Understood that our government – at least the nonmilitary portion- is the enemy of our freedom. Like a baby, the insatiable appetite at one end, and no responsibility at the other.

    The end of the middle class began in the 50’s with paradigm shift away from entrepreneurship to educated/skilled labor status.
    At the turn of the 20th century, the American Ideal was, start my own business, be my own boss, and own property.
    The mantra used to be “My kids will go to school, so that they do not have to work as hard I did”
    That changed post war to “My kids will go to College, so that they do not have to work as hard I did” and is now today “My kids will go to College, so that they can get a good job”
    I wonder why we no longer talk about or encourage our youth to be their own bosses? And who is pushing the agenda to send kids to college? the Liberals? the Academia?
    I once read a story, on Forbes I think, ranking the top 25 colleges to graduate billionaires. I think Harvard was number 1, but “no college” was number 2. That’s right. There are more college drop out billionaires than from the rest of the educated elite. As far as Harvard goes, my guess is, “It is not what you know, but who you know.” or more probably, they were already on track to be billionaires through inheritance.

    Referring to Omnius as Odious… brilliant!
    Maybe all of us should!
