I fear this is how it works. Republiklan economics in a nutshell right there.
This may be the worst part of trumpism; bigots are no longer embarrassed about being bigots.
That “certain area of the country” being Canada to Mexico and sea to shining sea……..
Now that’s funny – even though the actual flow of illegal arms was from Ronnie Raygun to the Nicaraguan terrorists.
No, it’s a coal-mine-owner tax cut. (Really. The whole thing is written for the benefit of the Koch Bros.)
I must clarify: When I say “Raygun”, it is shorthand for the evil puppetmasters who ran him; Ronnie was never President, he just played one on TV. He was a senile half-wit who read the lines they gave him; when he departed from his 3X5 cards, he had trouble forming a coherent sentence. They wanted a figurehead, and that’s what he was.
That’s the thing you reich wingers have never realized; the best thing about truth is you don’t have to make it up! You should try it; it’s much easier.
I am an historian; yes, we tend to be liberal, because truth has a strong liberal bias. Neither I nor any historian I know (or know of) considers Raygun to have been anything but atrocious. Nor is Kennedy anywhere in the top 10.
Actually, I think I can only name about a best 3 or 4. No problem with a worst 10; a plethora of candidates (heck, the 4 worst have all been since I became political aware); most, however, were mediocre.
The “biased media” treated Raygun so poorly that there is a book entitled On Bended Knee: The Press And The Reagan Presidency.
There are only 2 things keeping Ronnie from being the worst President in history: 43 & 45. He was an unmitigated disaster (and let’s not forget that his treasonous deal with the Iranians to hold the hostages until after the election in exchange for illegal arms sales was the precursor to Donnie Dimbulb’s conspricay with Russia).
The bonus is a one-time thing; the raise stays with you and compounds on next year’s raise. Score!
