of course it's the Reagan era. that's not even debatable. look even at the recent GOP candidates. each campaigned on the continuation of the Reagan era and as his heirs apparent.


we're now going to deal with the effects of the supply side, deficiets don't matter generation.

Jonesy, that was my thinking....

since 1980 we had 8 years of Reagan, 4 of Bush, and 8 of another Bush,

add to that the Republican Revolution and the fact the word "liberal" became a dirty word politicians ran from....


the GOP has touted the strong Economy Reagan created....


but now the net effect of the Reagan economic philosophy is hitting us.


and I am left wondering at that cute story of the Ant and the Grasshopper that the Right wing loves to post....


how is it that at the end of almost 30 years of economic prosperity is it possible that we put NOTHING aside during the good years?


we have ignored the infrastructure,

we have amassed a tremendous debt.

we have dismantled our manufacturing base,

out sourced middle managment jobs,

we have gone thru consolidations of industry, downsizing,

and all sorts of poor business practices that lack a long term view, but simply make the current quarter look good.


we have done nothing but sell off our wealth for a short term profit,


this is the legacy of Reagan.

But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by Yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively. If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.
